Crescent Under 5s Preschool Registration and Fees

We provide several types of funded and unfunded places.

All 3 and 4 year old children are eligible for 15 hours worth of funding from the term after their 3rd birthday. Some 2 year olds are eligible for funding, but particular criteria apply so please check with the Local Authority.

From September we will be taking children who qualify for the Extended 30 hour entitlement. However, the maximum number of hours that can be claimed is 27 hours.

We are signed up to the new Tax Free Childcare Scheme

In the event of a child being withdrawn from pre-school with less than half a term’s notice, fees will still be charged. Crescent Under 5 Pre-School

Fees continue to be payable if a child is absent for a short time. In case of prolonged absence (medical issue – operation, serious illness) parents should inform the pre-school, prior to the absence, in order that an agreement can be reached.  Prolonged absence does NOT refer to family holidays as this is parental choice.  If a child does not attend for a whole half term without giving reason, their place will be reallocated and fees for the missed half-term will be charged.

If parents are unable to pay the half-term’s fees in advance, fees may be paid in instalments by arrangement.

There is no funding for the Lunch Club and the Lunch club cannot form part of the Funded Hours  Invoices are issued on a half termly basis an fees are due within 2 weeks.

As a limited company, all families whose children attend pre-school or toddlers, must become member of Crescent Under Fives.  This is done as part of the registration process.  If a family wishes to become a member although they have no child at Crescent Under Fives, they may do so by completing a membership form.

Fees - from September 17

£17.50 for 2 year olds (3 Hour session)

£15.50 for additional unfunded sessions for 3 and 4 year olds (3 Hour session)

£4.00 per lunch club
