We accomodate ad hoc hours and sessions wherever possible according to availability.
An additional fee of £2.00 per week is added to children’s bills who join in the Music and Dance session. This session is part subsidised by the Pre-School Committee. This fee is voluntary, although we hope people will agree the benefit of this specialised music and movement to their child’s education by contributing to these sessions
We accept children for the 2gether Devon funding, which will give 15 hours of free childcare from the term following the child’s 2nd birthday. To find out if you are eligible for this please phone the Devon helpline on 0845 155 1019.

Our school is fully inclusive and our policies promote equality of opportunity for all children. If capacity is reached, places are allocated according to our admissions policy. The manager will take the final decision in consultation with the committee.
Late Pick Up
A late pick-up fee of £5 per 5 minutes will be made at the discretion of the Committee. We understand that delays do sometimes happen and will endeavour to be fair in the way late pick up fees are applied. If you know you are not going to manage to pick up on time, please contact the Pre-School staff as soon as possible.
Sickness and holidays
We fully support parents/carers who wish to take children out of Pre-School for holidays, however sessions missed at Pre-School or After School Club for sickness or holidays will still need to be paid for.
Cancelling a child's place
If a child's place is no longer required at the Pre-School/After School Club, (apart from at normal expected entry into primary/secondary school) then we ask that a minimum of four weeks' notice is given otherwise booked sessions will need to be paid for.
Billing is done in arrears on a monthly basis, we accept Working Tax Credits/Workplace Voucher Schemes/tax free childcare
Please approach any member of staff if you have any concerns about your bill.
