Sessions & Pricing

Sessions run Monday - Friday during term time.

We offer two sessions per day with a lunch club in between them.

Lunch Club:        12:00pm - 12:30pm

Government funding only covers a very basic level of childcare. We want to be able provide better care than this. To make this possible we ask parents to make a voluntary  contribution of £1.30 per funded hour that your child attends. 

 

This provides all the extras that will enhance your child's time at Seedlings and is much easier than asking for, and collecting, multiple payments for these throughout the year:

  • Higher staff to child ratio than is required by Government standards

  • Online Learning Journey, Messaging and News Feed all in a convenient phone app so that you can keep in touch with your child's daily activities at pre school

  • Special events such as Important Person Breakfasts, Christmas and Graduation Party

  • Extra craft for creating presents for you to treasure on special occasions such as Valentines Day, Christmas, Mothers' Day, Fathers' Day etc

  • Additional activities such as Dancing, Cookery, Woodwork, Super Maths and Woodland Walk

  • Sun cream

 

We do not want this to prevent you sending your child to Seedlings so, if you are unable to afford this, then please speak to us.
