Sessions and Fees


Your child can start at 8am, 9am, 12pm & 1pm  and can finish at 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm & 5pm. 

They can attend for a minimum of 3 hours and a maximum 9 hours a day.  

You can decide what times you would like your child to start and finish on the days that you choose. If it suits your needs, you can vary the length of stay on different days and you can choose which days your child attends; you are under no obligation to send your child every day. 

For children who do not qualify for free entitlement, or if you want your child to stay for additional hours above the 15 per week covered by the grant, fees will be charged at the current hourly rate.  


For those children who are not old enough to receive the Early Years  Education funding or who attend more than the funded hours they are entitled to, fees must be paid.  

Our charges from September 2017 are:

£5.25 an hour for 2 year old children

£5 an hour for 3 & 4 year old children

At the start of each month we will provide you with an invoice for fees covering the whole of that month.  Fees must still be paid if children are absent. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to Karen McCoy.   

Each child's attendance at Tiny Oaks is conditional upon payment of  fees and or completion of the Early Years Education Grant Forms.
