During Term Time
We are term time only and follow the Bristol School Term Dates. The first session will run on:
Tuesday 17th September
We ask that you commit to a full term of sessions (13 weeks) when signing up. The first term will run from Tuesday 17th September until Tuesday 17th December with a break for October half term.
Terms and conditions will be made available when registering
Children can arrive from 9.15 for a 9.30 start to the day.
Please collect at 15.00 and allow some time to gather belongings, share the day etc.
(please see structure of the day for more details)
*This fee applies to children aged 5-7 who aren’t in receipt of the funded hours.
We offer a sibling discount of £10.00 per child when both children pay for a place.
Places for low income families may be partially funded.
We are a registered childcare setting and accept the government funded hours to fully or partially cover the cost of a place (see below) as well as childcare vouchers and tax free childcare allowances.
NB: For those parents using the funded hours to pay for a place (for children aged 4 and 5) we take for 7.5 hours a day. There is also a £1.50 supplementary charge which goes towards morning snack and resources.
Please complete an online form (button bellow) to apply for a place. Once your place is confirmed, either in person or over the phone, we will start the registration process. You will receive an email invitation to our online parent portal, Famly. We use Famly for many things including obtaining registration details such as home address and emergency contact details as well as for invoicing and payments.
PARENT HANDBOOK, SETTLING IN AND ALL ABOUT ME MEETING
Our Kindergarten parent handbook contains some information relevant to you and your child starting with us. We would like to arrange a 1:1 meeting between you (your family) and the session leader Raphaela. This meeting helps us get to know your child a little bit before they start with us. If you think that your child may require a ‘settling in’ period before doing longer days please let us know.
There is a £25.00 registration fee for anyone paying for their child's place or using part of the funded hours. This will be included in your first invoice. This fee does not apply to families using all of their government funded hours with us.
We require a £50 returnable deposit to hold your place. Once you have a profile on Famly we will send you an invoice for the £50 deposit. Please make the payment ASAP as this is how we guarantee your place. The deposit will be deducted from any future invoices.
INVOICING & PAYMENTS
If paying for your child’s place you will be sent an invoice on the 1st of the month. For example, if your child starts in September you will receive an invoice on the 1st September for the month of September. Invoices must be paid within 10 days of receipt. All payments must be made through Famly unless using childcare vouchers (see below).
VOUCHER PAYMENTS & TAX FREE CHILDCARE ALLOWANCE
We accept a variety of childcare vouchers. If paying by childcare vouchers, please let us know when you have made payment and how much. We are registered with the following providers:
Eden Red: P21060292
Care 4: 22954380
We also accept the tax free childcare allowance. All of the accounts are linked to the Ofsted registration number EY546746 and postcode BS4 4DY.
GOVERNMENT FUNDED HOURS
You can use the government funded hours to pay for your child’s place. The funding is available up until the term after a child’s 5th birthday.
In order for us to claim the 15 or 30 hours you will need to complete an EYR1 form (issued by Bristol City Council). Please click here to download the form. You will need to return this form electronically to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Parents can access the 30 hours entitlement if they (each, in dual-parent families) earn at least the equivalent of 16 hours per week at the national living wage – or national minimum wage for those under 25 and at the top of the scale earn less than £100,000 per year. The minimum threshold is based on income not the number of hours worked, so a parent could be working for less than 16 hours per week but earning the equivalent of 16 hours at national minimum or living wage. Self-employed parents and those on zero hours contracts are also be eligible, as are families where only one parents is employed but the other parent has substantial caring responsibilities or is disabled.
