Fees for children not receiving funding, and for those attending more than their free hours are £4.50 per hour. As part of this charge, healthy snacks will be included in morning and afternoon sessions. We do offer a hot lunch option, to be be ordered in advance, at a cost of £2.30 per day. However, should your child not want a hot meal then a lunch box must be provided from home. For more information regarding food at preschool please click here.
Invoices are issued on a termly basis. An instalment option is available. Please see our ‘ Attendance and Fees Policy’ for further information.
Rushwick Pre-School is a Registered Charity and as such is non-profit making. It is our policy to keep fees as low as possible. However, overheads do have to be covered and fees must be paid for all children not receiving funding.
If you do have any difficulty paying your child’s fees, please feel free to discuss it with the Manager or Administrator in advance of your invoice due date.

Childcare vouchers are an employee benefit for all eligible working parents. They’re a Government-approved, tax-efficient way of paying for childcare. If you join the scheme, you can exchange up to £243 a month (£55 a week) of your gross salary for childcare vouchers.
Childcare vouchers need to be set up with your employer. Once activated, you can use your vouchers to pay for childcare. Please advise us which childcare voucher scheme your employer uses so we can ensure we are registered with them.
