Fee increase New fees as above:


When we return to preschool after the Easter break from the 26th of April our fees will increase.

At present our fees work out at £3.16 per hour, the government we charge £3.97 for a 3 year old and £5.30 for a 2 year old. So as you can see it is a significant difference, therefore we will increase to roughly £3.50 per hour. 

We do not like increasing fees, but due to national minimum wage increase and rent increase, we do not have a choice.



Fees are payable by cash or Bacs transfer, either at the start of the week or if parents prefer to monthly please let us know in advance. We will invoice all parents at the start of each month, in advance. If your child is poorly you MUST still pay for your child's place, if you wish to book holidays please give us at least a months notice and we will charge half fees for up to 2 weeks.


To find out if your child may be entitled to 2 year old funding, see the funding information page.

We also offer early entitlement for our 3 and 4 year olds, Preschool will arrange this funding through Cheshire west and Chester council. Your child will be eligible the term after their 3rd birthday, ie if their birthday is September, their free early entitlement will start January.


The term dates we adhere to are Flintshire dates.
