Fee paying children:
Fees are £6.50 per hour for those children NOT entitled to funded hours, those children that do before 9am and after 3pm or do additional hours over their Government funded entitlement.
Woodentops encourages children to do a minimum of 2 lots of three hour sessions per week, children can do more hours if parents require and if we can accommodate the children at Woodentops.
The space you have booked for your child is non refundable. We will hold these hours specifically for your child. It is at your discretion whether you use them. However, as the space is held for your child there will be no reimbursement of hours not used. Normal fee will be required if you are on holiday or your child is not attending because of illness.
Those children who are entitled to have the Government funded 15 or 30 hours pay a sessional fee- please see below.

Sessional Fee for Funded Children
During the pre-school session, we aim to provide a range of activities and experiences to broaden
the childrens knowledge, learning, and to build on and extend each child’s cultural capital.
In order for us to provide these additional services, we require a Sessional fee which helps to
cover some of the costs of the consumables, which Nursery Education Funding does not cover.
This fee is part of your monthly invoice.
Additional hours are charged at £6.50 per hour, these are hours over the funded allowance of either 15 or 30 hours per week, depending on what you are entitled to, and before 9am or after 3pm.
In accordance with Central Beds advice, invoices will be sent out in advance and will be payable by
the end of the first week of the current month. If your invoice is not paid on time, you are at risk of
losing your child’s place. If you have any problems in paying your invoice, please speak to Jackie as
soon as possible so any issues can be resolved together.
Termination of contract
A months’ notice is required for termination of contract. If you remove your child without notice, you will be required to pay 4 weeks fees.
