The Pre-school (registered charity 1102143) is part of Moreton Baptist Church and all the staff are church members.
The charity trustees are: Rev Andy Frith, Bill Bardsley and Jim Laird. The trustees are responsible, with the Pre-school Leader, for all staff appointments. Our administrator and treasurer is Wendy Clements
Fees are £13.50 for each three hour session from September 2020 (payable for children who are not eligible for EYE funding). Fees are payable half-termly, in advance, but please ask if you need to pay monthly or weekly. Payment of fees is ideally direct to bank or by cheque, however we will accept cash too, and some parents pay using childcare vouchers. Each term parents receive a statement of the fees due, and when to pay.
Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent. In cases of prolonged absence, parents should consult the Pre-school Leader about fee payment. Each child's attendance at the group is conditional upon the continued payment of any necessary fees.
Children receive Early Years Entitlement from the term after their third birthday. From this point on children are entitled to 15 free hours per week for the academic terms. Most families use that as five three hour sessions per week during the academic term. Many families will be eligible for up to 30 free hours per week, though there are not sufficient places for everyone to use that at Preschool. We have taken the decision to prioritise the older children for extended hours places, which means that over time everyone will be able to use them. Further details on the government scheme are at www.childcarechoices.gov.uk.
Some children are also eligible for Two Year Old Fundingwhich also covers 15 hours per week from the term after they are two. To find out if you qualify pleaseclick hereto see a full list of who is eligible. You can apply for this funding yourself, or if you prefer we can do it with you at Preschool . There is additional funding available for some children called Early Years Pupil Premium. This provides additional money which benefits the children in the preschool. Please check hereto see if your child can receive this funding. Preschool staff will be able to help and advise about all of this - please ask.
