Fees and Grants
In the term after your child’s third birthday he/she becomes eligible to receive five nursery grant sessions per week for the 38 school term weeks per year. As the five grant sessions may be used with different providers you will be asked to complete a Nursery Grant Declaration Form stipulating how many sessions you wish to use at Little Friends. We will then complete the claim process on your behalf.
Payment of fees is requested in the form of a monthly standing order or may also be made through child care vouchers. Your employer will need to be registered with a child care voucher provider in order for you to take advantage of their benefits. Care 4, Accor and Busy Bees are a few names to look out for, Little Friends is registered with all of these companies along with a few others.
The nursery fees include all nappies and food. Children who arrive before 8.30am are offered breakfast if necessary. All children are provided with a mid morning snack, a hot meal and a dessert at lunchtime and a mid afternoon tea. Each snack and lunch is served with a choice of either milk or water and water is on offer and accessible to children throughout the day.
