Dear Parents and Carers,

After much consideration we have come to the decision that we need to increase the preschool fees with effect from September 2018, this is due to the constant increases in our outgoings and an overall increase in the cost of living.

We have managed to keep preschool running well over the last few years with no or very minimal increases in our fees, however now we feel is the right time to increase our fees to ensure we maintain the excellent standards already provided.

The cost of each session will now be £13.00 which keeps our outstanding rated setting competitively priced and within the same price banding of preschools in the local area.

In addition to this we are also looking to change the way in which payments are made.

Currently fees are billed during the term in which they are for, however as from October half term invoices will be issued before the next block of sessions begin and payment will need to have been made in full before the children return to preschool. Failure to do so will put your child’s place at risk.

If your child is funded this will not affect you unless you pay for extra sessions above and beyond the 15 hours.

Further information regarding these changes will be sent out closer to the start of term.

Thanks as always for your support.

Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns regarding the proposed changes.

The Committee.
