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 pay a flat rate fee of £7.50 per week to contribute to the additional services that we provide.

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 Woodland Walks ,Dancing, Cookery, Super Maths

  • 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.

Voluntary Contributions

We always welcome any voluntary contributions that parents may like to make to help us continue to provide good resources and high quality provision.
