Sessions are charged at £18.50 per session, or can be funded using either the 15 hours of free childcare for all 3 and 4 year olds (details available here) or using the additional 15 hours of funding (details and application form). For 3 and 4 year old funding, the child can only receive a funded place from the start of the term after their birthday (subject to their birthday being before the funding period date). Funding periods start on 1 January, 1 April and 1 September each year.
At Hilltop, parents may also access and use 2 year old funding (details).
Lunch Club is charged at an additional cost of £4.50 per day, payable at the beginning of each term, which is non refundable.
A consumable donation is currently charged at £9.00 each term, this covers the cost of food for snacks given each session, and activities such as baking. Due to rising costs this charge will become mandatory from January 2024 to enable us to continue to offer this service to all children and provide such a high range of activities.
There is an admin fee of £10. This is applicable only for children who pay fees only.
From September 2021 funding can still be spilt between two providers, however the funding pattern must be the same.
If you choose to use funding at Brampton/Hilltop Pre-schools we claim over 38 weeks only. You will also need to use this funding pattern with your other provider.
