Funding

All 3-4 year olds in England and some 2 year olds are eligible for government-funded childcare. Find out more here

Please note that Government funding does not cover lunch time fees, additional ratios for outings etc, and as a not-for-profit charitable organisation, we aim to cover these costs through fundraising and from time to time we may ask for additional donations. The support of all our families is much appreciated during these events and helps us give your children the best experiences possible – as well as being enjoyable and memorable occasions.

Payment information

Payment for your child’s place at East Street Early Years is on a monthly basis. You will receive an invoice at the beginning of each month, which must be paid by the end of each month. We accept payment in cash, bank transfer, childcare vouchers or payments from a tax free childcare account.

Fees are payable for all hours agreed upon starting nursery, regardless of attendance. Therefore, if your child is unwell or on holiday, a charge will still be applied.

We are registered for childcare vouchers with Edenred, Computershare, Care-4, Sodexo, Busy Bees, Kiddivouchers, Fidelity, Co-op and You at Work. We are also registered with HMRC to accept payments from a tax free childcare account.
