Fees

Fees as from September 2017 are £1,200 per term for the under 3's. There is no reduction of fees in respect of absenteeism during the term. Cheques are made payable to Yeladenu Pre-School and sent to the Administrator. Childcare vouchers are accepted and payments can be made on line.

We are a charity, so no one will be refused a place because of financial circumstances; please speak to either Head or the administrator in confidence.

If your child is leaving, we do ask you please to advise us as soon as possible in order that we can offer the place to another child on the waiting list. At least a half terms notice in writing must be given before removing a child or half terms fee paid in lieu of notice.

Grants

Haringey Council give grants for 3 year olds as well as for 4 year olds. The cut off dates for each term are: 31st March, 31st August and 31st December. This means that grants are only payable in the next term starting after one of the cut off dates if you child reaches 3 years of age on or before one of those dates. E.g. A child born 28th December is entitled to a grant for the following January term. A child born 1st January does not qualify for a grant until the following April term.

 

Voluntary Contribution

All those parents in receipt of the NEG grant mentioned above, we ask for a voluntary contribution of £400 per term.

 

What help can you get with paying for your childcare?

 

Early Years Free Entitlement

Some two year olds are now entitled to receive 15 free hours of early education each week.  Please speak to the manager for more information on the ligibility criteria.  All three and four year olds are entitled to receive 15 free hours of early education. Your child will become eligible for the funding in the term after they become three years old and continue until they start in the reception class of their primary school.

 

Tax Credits

You may be eligible to get extra tax credits to help pay for some of your childcare costs while you are working.  How much you get will depend on your income and how often you pay for childcare.  For further information you can contact HM Revenue and customs (HMRC) or visit the website. http://www.hmrc.gov.uk (http://www.hmrc.gov.uk).

 

Childcare Vouchers

Childcare vouchers is a scheme some employers offer to help working parents save on registered childcare costs.  They are not means tested and are available to all working parents whose companies operate a childcare voucher scheme.  We are registered with several voucher administration companies.  Speak to the administrator for more information.

 

Tax free childcare

From September 2015, the tax free childcare scheme will be available to help with the cost of childcare.  The government will top up any payments you make into your childcare account by 20% up to a total of £10,000.  This is the equivalent of up to £2,000 support per child per year.  To qualify, parents will have to be in work, earning just over an average of £50 a week and not more than £150,000 per year.  For more information visit the website https://www.gov.uk/government/news/tax-free-childcare-10-things-parents-should-know)
