Need help with your childcare fees?

Here are a few handy tips about how you can get help with your childcare fees.

Prior to your child starting at nursery, you will be invited to bring them along for introductory sessions, which enable them to have short visits before their start date. These sessions are FREE, and will give you an opportunity to discuss your child’s needs and requirements with their key carer.

Little Pumpkins Nursery is part of the Early Years Development Partnership. 3, 4 and 5 year olds in the Early Years Foundation stage do receive funding since we are an eligible provider. The funding is received on behalf of the parent and is taken off the parents’ total monthly Fee’s. Further information is available upon request from the nursery manager.

The nurseries run a Breakfast Club for those parents who need an earlier start. The Breakfast Club operates from early morning Monday to Friday and is FREE.

The children are offered a breakfast comprising of cereals, toast, milk, fruit etc.

Nine out of ten families are eligible for some financial assistance through the new Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances, many parents are accessing funding to help contribute to nursery fees. Further information is available upon request from the Nursery Manager.

Childcare Vouchers can be used to pay for all forms of registered childcare for children up to the age of 16. As part of a salary sacrifice scheme, each working parent may save up to £1,196* per year. To benefit from the scheme, parents simply exchange a part of their salary for the same amount of Childcare Vouchers and use them to pay the childcare provider of their choice. A popular employee benefit, Childcare Vouchers are non-taxable (up to £243 per parent, per month or £55 per parent, per week) and do not attract employer or employee National Insurance contributions. This saving can help significantly towards a parent’s childcare costs. Further information is available upon request from the Nursery Manager.
