Early Years Funding.
The Butterfly room offers a limited number of funded places. For parents who wish to use their Early Years funding, and if space allows, eligible 3 and 4 year olds who are term time only may use up to 15 hours of funded places. For children who attend for 51 weeks, 11 hours of funding is available (stretched offer).
A deposit of £100 is required to confirm the acceptance of a place. This is simply a deposit, not an extra fee and it will be returned to the parents when the child leaves Pre-School. Should the child transfer to Reception, the £100 will not be returned and will become the non-refundable Acceptance Fee of a place in Junior School. Those children who are joining Reception from Pre-School will be given priority for the choice of Pre-School sessions available
