Home Fees


Butterfly Our pre-school is a registered charity and we aim to provide an affordable pre-school education for everyone.  All our income is invested in improving our pre-school provision.

Two year olds
Our current fees are £5.00 per hour for non funded children. This applies to all the sessions that your child attends, unless they are eligible for two year old funding from South Gloucestershire Council. You can check to see if your child is eligible and download an application form on the South Gloucestershire Council website. 

LadybirdThree year olds
After their third birthday, all pre-school children are eligible for the government Nursery Education Grant, which provides funding for fifteen hours of pre-school education per week. Once your child receives the Nursery Education Grant, you will only need to pay for any extra hours that your child attends pre-school. Our current fees are £4.50 per hour.

The Nursery Education Grant provides funding from the start of the main term after your child’s third birthday. The main terms start in January, April and September. So, for example, if your child’s third birthday was at the end of January, the Nursery Education Grant would provide funding from the beginning of the April main term. We apply for the grant from South Gloucestershire Council on your behalf after your child reaches their third birthday.

Payment of fees
We will send you an invoice for our session fees each half term. You can pay by cash, cheque or electronic bank transfer. Once your payment has been checked, your invoice status will be updated online, we can also send you a receipt if requested. If your child starts pre-school in the middle of a term, we will take this into account when calculating the fees. 

BeeFor your child to keep their place at pre-school, you must pay the fees. Our fees apply even if your child is not able to attend pre-school for a short period, for example through holiday or minor illness. 

We want to make sure that our pre-school is accessible to everyone, and we are happy to discuss payment of fees on a weekly basis if necessary. Please speak to our administrator or one of our pre-school leaders.
