From September 2015 the additional fees for the Early Years Funded children include £20.00 for access to each child’s digital Learning Journal on My Montessori Child.

  •  As the Early Years Funding for 3 and 4 year olds allocated by the Local Authority does NOT cover the cost of delivery at The Children’s House, the fees charged for the additional hours (15 + hrs) appear disproportionate and are calculated on a sliding scale.

 

We do allow children to stay for extra hours/mornings/days as long as we are given sufficient notice and we have space available.

These extra hours will be charged as follows and will be added to the fees for the following term:

Mornings (08.30 – 12.30 hrs) -  £8.00 per hour

Afternoons (12.30 – 15.00 hrs) -  £7.50 per hour

 

Children in Reception Year may attend part-time for the Autumn Term but must attend full-time (minimum 30 hours) for the Spring and Summer Terms.

 

If a child is NOT collected by the agreed collection time and we do not have an agreement that he/she will be collected late, there will be a charge of 50p per minute after the usual collection time for the first 30 minutes and £1 per minute thereafter.

Trips and other expenses will be added to the invoice for the following term.

Fees increase annually and may be subject to change at other times.

We aim to meet the needs of every child by being as flexible as possible.

If you would like your child to attend for any combination of mornings and days or for less than every morning/day, the fees will be adjusted accordingly, please ask Emma Wetherley  for further details.

Early Years Funding may be claimed for every child for 6 terms following the child’s third Birthday. Details will be given to you during the previous term.
