Fees & Funding

Our hourly fee is £4.20 for children over 3 years old and £4.50 for children under 3 year old.

Each term we ask parents for a voluntary contribution of £10. All funds received are used directly for improvement of the children’s facilities.

There are six terms in each academic year (in keeping with Oxfordshire LEA). At the beginning of each term you will be given a bill for fees that term. Payment is due either in two payments or in full before the end of term. No payment of fees may mean that hours are withdrawn the following term. Fees can be paid online, with cheque or cash handed to the Treasurer or a member of staff.

We also accept Childcare vouchers. Please ask for details.

Regalia is available from the administrator, including bottle green t-shirts, sweatshirts and fleece jackets with the preschool logo. Please ask for details.

Children who are 3 & 4 years old are eligible for 15 free hours of Early Years Education which Chestnut Trees Preschool offers in a flexible and accessible way within our opening hours including Lunch Club and our afternoon sessions.

To qualify for funding, sessions must be a minimum of 3 hours.

Government funding is also available for 2 year olds from low-income families. Please ask the administrator for more details.
