We commonly accept session blocks as follows: 5 mornings, 5 afternoons, 2 full days (including breakfast and lunch club) for 15 hours and 4 full days (including breakfast and lunch club) for 30 hours. These session blocks tie up with the 15 or 30 funded hours, which most parents may be entitled to claim. 

We can occasionally accept other session block combinations, subject to individual discussion during the admissions process. 


From September 2021, the session fee for all ages is £16.30 per 3-hour session (8.40am-11.40am or 12.20pm-3.20pm). 

Breakfast club is an additional charge of £4.60 per day to cover the supervision of children. Breakfast foods are provided. 

Lunch club is an additional charge of £4.10 per day to cover the supervision of children. Parents are required to provide a healthy packed lunch for their children. 

Both clubs can be included in paying and funded hours and we offer limited places that can be booked on a first come, first served basis.
