Admissions & Fees

Children are eligible to join Little Bears from the start of term after they turn 2 years old, and can remain at the Pre-School until they start the Reception Year of Primary/Infant School.

We ask that children are registered by completing the Admissions Form attached . Early registration is advisable. Our supervisor is always happy to discuss individual needs as well as organising settling in sessions for your child once a place is confirmed.


We run the following sessions:

  • Monday to Friday 9am – 12pm  and 12pm – 3pm
  • Children are welcome to attend any combination of sessions, subject to availability.  
  • All children are required to attend a minimum of two sessions per week or five once they are entitled to funding.

Fees & Funding

Our current session fees are £15.75 per session for those children not eligible for funding.

Under the Early Years Free Entitlement system, all three and four year olds are entitled to 15 hours per week from the term following their 3rd birthday, for up to 38 weeks per year.  Once your child becomes eligible for funding, we do expect you to use your full 15 hours with us. We do not currently accept extended hours funding. 

In addition, we charge a contribution towards the snacks we provide.  Currently 20p per session per child.

All fees are invoiced termly, in advance.

Our Term Dates are attached.
