Our fees are £15 per session payable half-termly in advance. We also charge a one-off £25 admin fee to secure your child's place at the setting when they first start, to cover registration costs. A snack donation of 50p per session is added to your child's invoice. This covers the cost to Jigsaw of buying a variety of healthy snacks for your child. Snack time is a sociable occassion sitting around a table - sharing and eating food together and trying new flavours. If snack money isn 't paid you will need to bring in a suitable alternative snack for your child. (See our Food and Drnk Policy on General Policies page).
Fees must still be paid if children are absent due to e.g. illness or a family holiday. However, if your child has to be absent over a long period of time, please speak to one of the Preschool Managers, or the committee chair. Demand for places is quite high and we can only maintain places if fees are paid. Please let us know if you are having any difficulties, and we will be happy to consider alternative payment arrangements, or suggest local charities/organisations that may be able to help.
