Sessions & Fees
Easton Pre-School is run on a term-time basis.
We offer childcare on the following days and times:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
8.00am - 4.00pm
There are no pre-school sessions on Tuesdays.
We always try to operate the same term time arrangements as Easton Primary School.
Parents are invited to stay with their child for as long as they wish in order that they are happy and settled. Staff will work with parents over a number of sessions to ensure children feel at ease.
We aim to keep our costs low whilst still providing high quality childcare and are currently in the process of reviewing our fees.
Please contact Pre-school to find out information about available places and our fees.
All our additional activities: Outings and Dance sessions within session times are provided at NO ADDITIONAL COST to parents.
We fund-raise for any activities and outings to ensure our provision is accessible to all families.
We are registered to receive Government funding in the term following the child’s 3rd birthday and for some children following their 2nd birthday. Parents will be given a funding form to fill in at the start of each term which will enable them to discuss how they would like to use their child's hours.
Currently 3 year old funding entitles your child to receive 15 hours of childcare.
30 hours Childcare funding for working parents
30 hours Childcare funding for working parents is available to those eligible families, if you think you may be eligible please visit the HMRC website, where you can complete a questionnaire, which will then give you additional information about the government lead scheme.
All non-funded children are billed in advance each half term for the sessions they will attend.
Funding for two year olds
Many children aged two can have 15 hours free early learning if you meet certain criteria. To find out if your two year old can get free childcare check online at: www.suffolk.gov.uk/two*

Childcare vouchers are a Government-supported scheme, designed to make childcare more affordable for working parents. Employers typically provide childcare vouchers through salary sacrifice, with employees receiving their vouchers instead of part of their salary.
We are registered with computershare childcare voucher service. But we can register with other providers if your employer is part of another scheme. Please ask us more if you are interested.
A new scheme called Tax-free Childcare (TFC), is scheduled to be launched in autumn 2015 and will work differently for parents to the existing childcare voucher scheme. The existing employer childcare voucher schemes won't close - they will continue to run once TFC launches, but parents will need to already be registered on it to continue to use it.
