In 2011 the FEEE was introduced to all families who fall into one of the following criteria:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseekers Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under Part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- the guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided you’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit run-on - paid for 4 weeks after you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
Please call or email if you think you may qualify
We give 2 weeks grace for payment of fees, non payment of fees after 2 weeks would jeopardise your child’s place in the pre-school. Fees are also still due if your child is ill, as we still have to pay the staff and the rent etc. exceptions are made for hospitalisation and contagious diseases, is chicken pox and measles. 1 months notice MUST be given for fee paying children.
We are a community group and are financed by FNEE, Council grants, other charitable organisation grants, Church subsidy, and children’s fees.
Parents of children qualifying for the FNEE need not make any contribution to their child’s fees except £10 registration and 50p per day donation towards snacks & art/craft supplies which is a voluntary donation
All children are now entitled to the nursery education grant the term following their 3rd birthday. Please ask a member of staff for more details regarding this grant.
