Fees must be paid monthly, for the sessions booked, with no credits for absence. Our preferred method of payment would be a monthly in advance direct bank payment to:
- Bank: HSBC
- Account Name: Butterfield Pre School Group
- Sort Code: 40-47-51
- Account Number: 31094076
We expect all bills to be paid in 14 days from date of issue.
We also accept payment via cash, all Childcare Vouchers and tax free childcare which could save you even more.
We also offer government funded childcare places for both 2 years old (15 hours) and 3-4 year old (30 hours).
We can offer 30 hour provision for working parents of three and four year olds.
The government funds the extension of free childcare to support parents who currently work, wish to return to work or to increase their working hours, by making childcare more affordable.
To be able to access 30 hours both parents need to be working (or the sole parent is working in a lone parent family), and;
- Each parent earns on average, a weekly minimum equivalent to 16 hours at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage
- Earns less than £100,000 per year (when one parent in a household has an income of £100,000 or more, that family will not be eligible to take up the extra free hours).
‘Working’ means both employed and self-employed persons may be eligible.
You do not need to actually work 16 hours a week, but your earnings must reflect at least 16 hours of work at National Minimum Wage or National Living Wage.
Families may also be eligible where one parent gets benefits relating to caring responsibilities or a disability and the other parent is working.
The standard entitlement of 15 hours per week for 38 weeks will still be available even if you aren’t eligible for the additional entitlement.
Eligibility checking can be accessed via the HMRC website:
