Fees are £5.55 per hour for those children not entitled to funded hours. Woodentops encourages children to do a minimum of 2 lots of 3 hour sessions per week, children can do more hours of parents require.
Those children who are able to access funded 15 or 30 hours pay a sessional fee between the hours of 9am and 3pm. Additional hours are charged at £5.55 per hour.

These fees are there to ensure that Woodentops remains financially viable and continues to provide a valuable service to our local community.
By offering an extended session in the morning and at lunch time, we hope it will give parents/
carers flexibility in being able to drop off early or collect children later, to coincide with other
commitments you may have.
We will continue to be flexible if you need to drop off or collect your child earlier, however you will
be charged for the full hour (if charging is applicable) as detailed in the table above.
These sessions will be required to be booked in advance to ensure we are safely staffed. If we are
unable to offer your first choice, we will contact you to offer an alternative. Please speak to Jackie,
Karen or Sue if you wish to change your hours.
Contribution Fee for Funded Children
During the pre-school session, we aim to provide a range of activities and experiences to broaden
the childrens knowledge and experiences.
In order for us to provide these additional services, we require a contribution fee which helps to
cover the cost of consumables, which Nursery Education Funding does not cover.
We will be charging a contribution fee of £3 per 3 hour session or £6 per 6 hour session. This money
is spent on snack, craft resources, malleable materials and cooking ingredients. Without this
contribution fee we will be unable to offer these additional activities. This contribution fee will be
included in your monthly invoice.
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.
