Payment Terms

All sessions contracted for must be paid for, including those, which fall on a Bank Holiday. No reductions are made for time off due to holidays, sickness or other absence. You can book additional sessions if the setting has the availability to accommodate them. 6 weeks notice is required if you wish to cancel your child’s place or reduce/change their sessions.

Nursery Education Funding

We are approved providers of Hampshire County Council’s free early year’s educational grant for 2, 3 and 4-year olds. This funding is available for all children from the term after their third birthday regardless of family circumstances. We will supply you with all the required information and parent declaration forms for you to complete, as your child reaches the appropriate age. This funding does not cover certain sundries, activities, visits and hot meals so if a child is using the grant a daily charge of £7.50 (£8.50 term time only children) will be payable.

Visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for more information on funding and fee support – and to apply for your 30 hours funding code.

Registration & Deposit

To register your child at Finkley Weeke please complete a registration form. A £50 (non-refundable) administration fee is payable to cover the administration in registering your child.
Once the required sessions have been confirmed a £100 deposit is payable to hold the sessions. This deposit is refundable on your last month’s fees.
