All children are be entitled to LA funding for 15 hours per week from the start of the term following their 3rd birthday, the LA provides funding for up to 38 weeks per year.  The school year is in most cases 39 weeks induration so it may necessary for us to charge top up fees for the remaining sessions.  In this event you will be notified at the beginning of the term of the fees payable, these can be paid in instalments if necessary over this period but must be paid completely during that term.


During the first few weeks of each term, the Preschool will receive a grant application from Warwickshire Local Authority and will make the application for all eligible children within the Preschool.  It is a statutory requirement that you complete a parent pro-forma which must be returned to Preschool with proof of your child’s date of birth.  It is important that you inform us if your child‘s funding is being claimed at another setting.
