Fees and Funded Childcare

Fees and Funded Childcare for 3 and 4 year olds

Our core hours are, Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 12 and 12.30 to 3.30, these can be taken in the following ways:

Universal entitlement

Once your child is eligible for 15 hours universal entitlement, places are offered for 5 three hour sessions per week and can be taken in any conbination you wish providing the sessions required are available.

Where a child stays on site for the lunch club (12.00 - 12.30) a fee is payable to cover the staffing of this non funded session.

There will be no charge for a child's first 5 three hour sessions with us unless you have previously claimed stretched funding from another provider, in this case any non-funded hours will be charged at our current hourly rate. The funded hours to which you are entitled will be determined by Surrey County Council's Free  Early Education Team. The switch from stretched to term time funding can only be made at the beginning of the term following your child's next birthday.

You may choose to split your hours with another childcare provider however if you are sharing the funding with another setting on a stretched basis it is unlikely that you will be able to claim your full entitlement

30 Hours entitlement

Some families may be eligible for 30 hours of childcare. West Byfleet Nursery will be offering a limited number of 30 hour places on a first come first serve basis. These funded hours are offered across our core 30 hours (9.00 - 12.00 and 12.30 - 3.30). Where a child stays on site for the lunch club (12.00 - 12.30) a fee is payable to cover the staffing of this non-funded period.

If you are claiming the 30 hours entitlement and lose your eligibility your funding will continue until the end of the current grace period as determined by the DfE. Thereafter West Byfleet Nursery will endeavour to honour your child's entitlement to the 15 universal hours however the sessions offered will be determined by the nursery based on current availability. If your funding is split between settings the split of universal hours must be agreed between yourself and both settings involved. If we are unable to contact you during the grace period to finalise these details your child's place with us will be withdrawn completely once this period ends.

Paid Sessions

These sessions can be taken in conjunction with the funded entitlements or in the term in which the child's 3rd birthday falls, before their entitlement starts. Current session rates are listed below. All sessions are subject to availability.

Extended nursery hours

These are optional paid hours which can be taken should you wish to extend your nursery day.

Our early morning sessions.

There are two options each morning;

Breakfast Club

This session runs from 8 am until 9am and includes breakfast (choice of cereal, fruit and toast). This session must be pre-booked, either by term, for regular attendance, or by midday of the day preceding the session required for an ad hoc booking. Regular bookings will be included in the terms invoice, ad hoc bookings will be pay as you go.

Bright and Breezy

For those wishing to start at 8.30, this session can be pre-booked or taken on a turn up and pay basis. Regular bookings will be included in the terms invoice.

At the end of the day

We also offer the option to pick up your child at 4pm rather than 3.30pm. As before this additional half hour session must be pre-booked. This can be done by term or on an ad hoc basis. Bookings must be made before midday on the day to ensure we have staff available to care for your child.

Please note; any parent who picks up after 3.30, without having pre-booked the session, will be subject to our normal late collection fine of £15 per 15 minutes or part thereof, as set out below.
