Pricing for FEET funding is not currently available on the website, please get in touch to discuss this with us
Fees are due in advance and are invoiced mid-month for the following month. Fees are calculated based on the 51 weeks of the year Barnkids is open and then annualised into 12 monthly payments, so you pay the same each month. Monthly payments will include bank and public holidays and inset days, which are payable in full as our monthly costs remain the same.
Multi-day discounts are available for children attending 5 days a week (10%) or Sibling Discounts (10%), if you have two or more children attending the nursery at the same time. The discount is applied to the eldest sibling.
Government funding is available to all 3-year old children from the school term following their third birthday. All children are eligible for 15 hours of funding, some children may be eligible for 30 hours of funding dependent on your personal circumstances. Full eligibility criteria and information on how to apply can be found here.
The funding is only available for 38 weeks of the year, so you will still receive a monthly charge which covers the additional weeks your child attends and any additional hours your child attends during the week. We take the same approach as with our regular fees and split the funding evenly over the 51 weeks we are open.
An additional services and quality premium (ASQP) charge is applied to funded hours. This additional charge covers meals, snacks, Forest school and other consumables that make our nursery an amazing place to attend. This charge is not compulsory - please see our Funded Early Education Policy for further information.
Tax Free childcare is a government run scheme that provides a significant cost on your nursery fees each month. For every £8 you pay through this scheme, the government will contribute £2 in return up to £2,000 a year, per child. Eligibility is based on personal circumstances but it can be used for children of any age, not just those receiving funding. To apply for Tax Free Childcare please followthese instructions
