A few things to note about our pricing and fees

We offer discounts for siblings and there are some extra charges for late pick ups. We also cater to those that need days outside of the term days. Please see below.

Additional information

Free Early Education

Free Early Education is offered between 9 am-12noon, 12noon-3 pm, or 9 am-3 pm. We offer 9 am-3 pm Monday till Friday for 30 hours-funded children and 3-hour chunks for 15-hour funded children, e.g., 5-morning sessions, 5 afternoon sessions, or 2 and half days. Maximum funded hours 570/1140 per year, term time only (38 weeks of the year).

Sibling discount

A 5% discount is given for the oldest sibling attending the Pre-School. Both of the siblings need to pay to get the discount. If they funded, the sibling discount doesn't apply.

Late pickup charge

A late pick-up fee is charged at £10 per half hour. This will be added to your childcare invoice in the following month.

Payment Due date

Payments are due 30 days after receiving the invoice. The late payment penalty charge will be 5% of the unpaid amount.

Additional days or Holiday Club

Additional sessions or days may be booked in addition to your child’s contracted days, subject to availability. Invoices for additional sessions/days will be sent out at the end of the month. Should you need to cancel additional hours, a minimum of 72-hour notice is required, or the full fee will be applicable.

School Closure

As extreme weather conditions are out of our control and are uninsurable, we regret that Saplings are unable to refund fees or offer alternative childcare days.
