Fees & Funding

Fees are paid half- termly in advance.

Cheques should be made payable to “Magic Dragon Pre-school”

We also accept Employer Childcare vouchers, such as Kiddivouchers,Care-4 and Sodexo. It is usually a simple process for the pre-school to register with your employer’s scheme.

The fees cover all expenditure including resources for  the children to use (paint, paper etc.), staff wages, rent for the hall, staff training, snacks and cooking ingredients, P.L.A. membership and insurance and other costs incurred by the pre-school.

Fees are still payable if your child misses a session.

If you wish to cancel your child’s session(s), half a term’s notice or payment in lieu must be given. Non-payment of fees will result in your child’s place(s) being re-allocated.

Your child may be eligible for the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) (previously known as the Nursery Grant)

Free Early Education Entitlement

Children are eligible for funding from the beginning of the  term following their third birthday. This entitles them to funding for 15 hours every week, for 38 weeks a year.
The funding can be shared between 2 settings.

Every term you will be asked to complete a form, so that the pre-school can claim the funding from the City Council.
