Preschool in Bingham

Session Times & Fees

Session Times and Fees

From the term after their third birthday, every child is entitled to 15 hours of free early years education for 38 weeks of the year. This free education can be split across two providers if your child also attends another setting, and can include lunch clubs at Buttercross pre-school.  Our session times are as follows:-

Monday – Friday
Mornings        08:45 – 11:45  (3 hour session)
Lunch club     11:45 – 12:45  (1 hour)
Afternoon       12:45 – 15:15  (2.5 hour session)

Any Government funding received by parents of children aged 3 + can be used towards the cost of using this service.

If your child is not of eligible age for the free entitlement, or you require any extra time above the free 15/30 hours per week, you will be charged an

£4.80 per hour for those eligible for 3 & 4 year funding

£5.10 per hour for all other children

Please note our morning sessions are 3 hours and therefore will use more of your free entitlement than the afternoons and be a higher price if you are paying for them.  Bills for any fees are issued half termly payable by the end of the first week of term.

Our qualified staff are able to care for your children on a ratio of 1 adult to every 5 children with a maximum of 25 children per session. The sessions are open to children aged between 2 and school age.  Children do not need to be toilet trained.

To ensure your child gets a place at Pre School when you need it, we recommend you place them on the waiting list as soon as you can as demand is currently high.  A waiting list application can be downloaded from this website. For more information or a prospectus please contact the Pre School during opening hours on 01949 839667
