Fees and funding



£4.36 per hour (unfunded children) 


£5.04 per hour flexi sessions rate


This price includes morning and afternoon snacks. We invoice at the start of each term and we ask that you pay within 14 days.  Our fees are reviewed on an annual basis.


We accept childcare vouchers, cash, cheques or bank transfer as forms of payment.  Fees are still payable if your child is off sick or you chose to take your child out during term time for a holiday. 


Termination of Attendance

If you wish to cancel your child’s placement four weeks’ notice must be given in writing for termination of attendance, save for rising fives moving onto school.  This applies to both funded and non-funded children.  For funded children, a four-week notice period will apply to the transferral of any Early Years Funding to another setting.  All funding will remain with Plymtree Pre-school and will not be able to begin with a new provider until the end of the four-week notice period.  For non-funded children, fees will be charged for any remaining term of notice even if there is no attendance by the child

Early Years Entitlement Funding – from 3 years

In the term following your child’s third birthday, you will be eligible for 15 hours per week free childcare funded by Devon County Council.  If you choose to use these hours at pre-school, we will arrange this for you so you don’t need to do anything to receive this.

Golden Tickets (2 year old funding)

A golden ticket provides free childcare to eligible two-year-olds.  Your child is eligible if your family is receiving certain benefits.  Find out if you are eligible at:
