Fees Payment

Fees are invoiced monthly in advance for regular booked sessions, while any ad hoc sessions are invoiced with the following month's fees.


Free Entitlement

Three- and four-year-olds are entitled to 15 hours of free early education each week during term time. This free entitlement is paid from the beginning of the term after your child turns three. To find out more about the Government's Early Education Entitlement, please click the link below:

Early Education Entitlement

As free entitlement does not apply to Kindergarten lunches, sessions and lunches are itemised separately on the fee invoice. 

St Mary's Kindergarten does not currently offer the extended 30-hour entitlement.


Childcare Vouchers

St Mary's is able to deal with all approved providers of Childcare Vouchers. Please contact the school Finance Office on 01206 572544 to discuss your particular requirements.

Important note: the Government intends scrapping the current voucher scheme later in 2018 for new applicants (currently anticipated to be October). Please contact your provider for more details. We will also be able to accept payment via the Government's new Tax-Free Childcare scheme. For further details please follow this link:
