We offer a variety of sessions which incorporates the free provision entitlement, some session times can vary from those below and individual cases will be calculated on their own merit. Any additional hours are calculated at the hourly rate in line with our Over 2’s fee structure.
Meals are charged accordingly (Meals are optional and for some a lunch box option is preferred however if a child attends for lunch and tea we recommend a cooked meal to ensure a balanced diet).
