Sessions and fees

We charge £5.00 per hour.

We also accept Early Years Funding, 15 universal hours and 30 hours.  Our sessions run from Monday to Friday during Rutland term time (38 weeks a year)

Timings are as follows:

Morning : 8.45 am to 11.45 am daily
Afternoon : 11.45 to 3.45 pm daily
All day : 08.45 to 3.45 pm daily

Every child is eligible for funding for fifteen hours per week from the term after they turn three (regardless of parental income).

We also offer thirty hours free childcare, if you meet the government’s criteria.

We claim Early Years Funding from the government on your behalf. We arrange everything for you – you just need to complete the form and show us your child’s birth certificate or passport.

If you would like more than fifteen hours, these are paid for at the normal rate.

2 year old funding is available if your family meet the correct criteria.

Places are available on the understanding that the child will attend 2 or more sessions per week.

A completed application form and a £10 deposit for each session booked, is required. Refundable when the child begins Playschool.

We offer free settling in/taster sessions before your child’s official starting date, to ensure a smooth transition. The child must be accompanied by a parent/guardian at this time.


Children with special needs. We will do all we can to accommodate children with special needs. Meeting with parents and relevant agencies beforehand to discuss the best possible environment for the child to be integrated into.

Parents must inform the playschool of any known medical condition or health problem. With parental permission, we administer medicines such as inhalers and epipens.

If a child has had Calpol, they are unwell and should be kept at home until recovered. We do not administer Calpol.
