Fees & Funding
Our Session Fees:

£7.73 for lunch (12-1pm)
£41.00 for all day (9.15am-2.45pm)
All children are eligible for 15 hours Universal Early Years Government Funding the term after they turn three. In addition, some children may be eligible for extra funding via the Government’s Extended 30 hour scheme. Harpsden Pre-School is a registered charity and we try to keep our fees as low as possible. Where this Government funding is claimed for sessions at Harpsden Pre-School parents will be asked to make a voluntary parental contribution to the pre-school to cover the shortfall between the amount of Government funding received and the actual running costs of the pre-school. These contributions are:
£9.02 per session (9.15am-12pm)
£3.73 for lunch (12-1pm)
£18.04 for all day (9.15am-2.45pm)
Families in receipt of certain benefits may be able to claim 2 year old funding. We can claim extra funding through the Early Years Pupil Premium scheme to support children’s development, learning and care and the Disability Access Fund. Children are eligible for EYPP if their parent/s are in receipt of certain benefits.
