Session Times & Fees

The Pre-School is open every week of the school year:
☆ Monday to Friday, 9am-3pm

Shipham First School offers a breakfast club for children aged three and over who need to be dropped off before 9am. A member of staff will escort Pre-School children from breakfast club to Pre-School at 9am.

If our opening times do not suit your needs, then please let us know. If a sufficient number of parents would like us to extend our provision, then we promise to seriously consider doing so.
You can enrol for part- or full-day sessions:
Morning 9am to 12noon, £14.40
Lunch 12noon to 1pm, £3.70
Afternoon 1pm to 3pm, £9.60
Full day 9am to 3pm, £27.70

We accept Early Years Entitlement (EYE) funding and employee incentive childcare voucher schemes. Mid-morning and mid-afternoon snacks and drinks are included in the fees.

Fees for sessions in excess of those covered by EYE funding are payable monthly, in advance. Because staff-to-child ratios and shifts are planned ahead, if your child is absent from Pre-School, the fee is still required.

We request that you pay a registration fee for each child (£35), unless you are registering only for EYE funded sessions (children aged three or over, or in receipt of 2yr old funding, attending for 15 hours per week or fewer). Parents who wish to book certain hours for their child well in advance of the child’s start date must pay a deposit of £75. Please contact the Administrator for details.
