*To enable us to sustain ourselves and offer your child the best Pre School education and care we can, Gooseberry Green make a small charge per funded session towards the cost of a healthy snack, materials and resources



Payment Methods

Fees are payable monthly in advance on the twelfth of each calendar month. Our preferred method of payment is by BACS. We also accept cheques and childcare vouchers. Please let us know which company you use and your identification number. Late payment of fees will incur a £20.00 charge and fees must still be paid if children are absent. For your child to keep her/his place at the setting, you must pay the fees.


Nursery Education Funding

We are in receipt of Nursery Education Funding for two, three and four year olds which we claim on your behalf any additional hours will be invoiced accordingly. All funding is for 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the academic year; where funding is not received, then fees apply. Fees are reviewed annually and are inclusive of morning and afternoon snack, milk, and water is available at all times. Lunch club fees cover your child’s care and lunch.

Your child will be eligible to access 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the academic year. These hours can only be accessed during the morning and afternoon sessions. Lunch will be charged seperately at the rate above.* You can divide your entitlement of 15 hours between two settings. When your child becomes funded (the term after their third birthday) you will be required to sign a funding contract and we will need a copy of their birth certificate. At the beginning of each term you will be required to fill out a funding form.
