Once sessions are booked on a termly basis, payment is required regardless of attendance. Sessions cannot be swapped. However, we can, subject to availability, offer 'one off' sessions.

Regular sessions must be booked in advance and are charged monthly.

If you no longer require the place for your child, the preschool require A MINIMUM OF 4 WEEKS NOTICE IN WRITING.

Payment of fees should be made via cheque, internet bank transfer or using the Childcare Voucher Scheme.

Delivery of Free Early Education

We are a registered provider on Kent County Council's Free for 2 (FF2) Scheme, offering up to 15 hours free childcare for eligible 2 year olds, Free Early Education for 3 and 4 year olds and 30 hours entitlement, during term time. If we do not have the availability to offer 15 or 30 hours, you are welcome to use your remaining hours with another registered provider. There is no additional charge for attending during your free entitlement hours, however, if your child attends over and above the hours which are claimed, our usual fee structure will apply.

** Funded hours are offered on a 'per session' basis, each session being 9-12, 1-4 or two sessions can be booked together to form a school day 9 -3. The maximum funded days per academic year are offered over a 38 week period. Very occasionally this will mean your child's funded sessions may have been used before the last week of the academic year, if this is the case, you may choose to pay for the additional hours, or not attend.

The funded session will be the first hours your child is booked to attend each week. In the event that you have sessions owing at the end of the academic year you will be offered an additional session, where spaces are available.

We aspire to hold spaces throughout the year for Funded 2 year olds, but this may not always be possible.

Please feel free to speak to a member of the pre-school team if you require any further assistance or information regarding your child's free entitlement.

Snacks and meals

If your child stays for lunch, a preschool lunch can be provided for a fee of £2.50 per lunch. The pre-school has snack time in the morning where a selection of fruit, vegetables, breads and seasonal food is available to the children. Fresh water is available at all times; the children are encouraged to help themselves. If your child has any allergies to food or drink, we ask that staff are made aware so that they can ensure your child is kept safe.

We operate a healthy eating policy and ask parents to ensure that children’s lunches contain healthy options such as fruit and dairy products. Staff sit with children at lunch time to encourage healthy choices. We discourage sweets and fizzy drinks. We have a strict “NO NUT” policy.


Children can wear Preschool uniform of a purple polo shirt and jumper, or their own clothing. They will require coats and boots for cold, rainy days and sun hats and sun cream on sunny days. We do many messy activities at pre-school, both inside and out and for this reason we ask that you send your children to pre-school in clothes that you don't mind them getting messy and dirty. We aim to use our outside spaces every day, whatever the weather.


Uniform is available to purchase from preschool, please ask a member of staff.
