Fees are payable in advance on a half term basis where Government Funding is not available due to age or eligibility of the child.


Payment should ideally be made by BACS transfer into our account as detailed below:


Barclays Bank plc Account No: 00773972;  Sort Code 20-52-74.

Please state a reference which should be your child's full name.


Cash is accepted an an alternative. Cheques should be avoided where possible as these incur additional charges and time for Playgroup to process. Where a cheque payment is made it should be crossed and made payable to: St Paul’s P.C.C. Playgroup Account. The Playgroup is unable to accept credit or debit cards.


Alternatively we accept child vouchers from Fideliti, Edenred & Care-4, details are as follows:


Fideliti: Account reference - stpaulsplaygp

Edenred: Account reference - P20782020

Care-4: Account reference - 49778003

Our Ofsted registration no is 128485


St Pauls Christian Playgroup is a non-profit making organisation, and therefore heavily dependant on ensuring our costs can be met and our cash flow is positive – therefore it must be noted that failure to pay fees when due could result in our refusal to accept your child into the Playgroup.


The Playgroup is however sympathetic to families who are suffering financial difficulties and such circumstances can be discussed with the Playgroup Manager in the strictest confidence in order that we may agree a viable solution.


The Playgroup is registered to receive Government funding for children over 3. All children over 3 years of age are entitled to a maximum of 55 sessions free of charge, over a period of 38 weeks if they are not claiming a free place at another nursery. 


It will be necessary for the parent/carer to sign a Parent Setting Contract each term in order to confirm that their child is not receiving a free place (funding) at another Nursery or Pre-School. Please note, this funding starts at the term following the child’s third birthday.


A Registration Fee is charged for all children to cover administration costs and the home visits carried out prior to the agreed start date. Confirmation of a child's enrolment, together with arrangement of the home visit will only be made following payment of the Registration Fee.

Registration Fee £40.00

Per Session Fee

Minimum of 2 sessions

Additional Session Fee £21.00

PLEASE NOTE - Fees cannot be deducted for absence for any reason, as you will understand all expenses still have to be paid. We require a minimum of two weeks notice prior to your child leaving. Children leaving part way through a term will still require payment of fees for the remainder of the half term in which they leave.
