Fees and Funding


We understand childcare can feel expensive and we try to keep our fees as family-friendly as possible. However, we also need to ensure we can continue to provide the service to our children and families which has delivered 35 years of first-class childcare, so our fee structure is also reflective of this.

Our fees include breakfast, baby formula, nutritious non-processed snacks, organic milk, Pampers nappies, suncream, some extra-curricular lessons and enrolment in our Hopscotch Explorers programme.

We understand funding for childcare can be complicated - it can be for us too!


We want to help make things as simple as possible and support our families every step of the way. We have a wealth of knowledge about funding and will try to answer any questions you have.

Universal funding is available from the term after your child’s 3rd birthday - we suggest you visit the Childcare Choices site for more information and to understand more about eligibility criteria.

Here is some useful information on how providers can access additional funding and support for children with SEND:

The standard 15 or 30 hours funding is usually spread over 38 weeks of the year. We stretch our funding to apply up to 12 or 24 hours funding over 47 weeks of the year. This means it is applied more consistently over the course of the year.
