We are open Monday to Friday from 8 am to 5.30 pm, all year round, except for 2 weeks over the Christmas/New Year period, and bank holidays. There is also the option of attending term-term, in line with Claydon Primary School.

As of September 2023 our session fees are £5.70 per hour for 3/4 year olds and £6.60 per hour for 2 year olds. These are reviewed regularly.

Sessions may be tailored to your requirements but, to avoid unnecessary disruption to the children, we specify the drop-off times of 8am, 8.30am, 9am, 12.30pm or 1pm and collection times of 12pm, 3pm, 3.30pm, 4pm, 4.30pm, 5pm, or 5.30pm.

We will always try our best to accommodate any different hours you require to those stated above.

Any child who attends from 1200-1230 will receive a healthy balanced two-course lunch for a contribution of £1.60 per day.


We request fees are paid in advance. For year-round places fees are paid monthly. For term-time places the fees are paid half-termly. Unfortunately, we cannot offer refunds for missed sessions - see our Terms & Conditions for more details.

Your child will be funded for 15 hours per week by the government the term after your child becomes three years old. If you have a two-year old and you are receiving social security benefits, it may be possible to receive funding earlier. We will speak to you nearer the time regarding this. If you choose to claim your full government funding at another childcare provider, fees will be charged by us to cover costs. We are happy to split the funding with another childcare provider.

You are welcome to visit the Pre-school and talk to members of staff. To arrange a visit, or for further information, please contact our Manager - Jo Bean, or Administrator - Lisa Read. The telephone number is 01473 831648.
