Payment of fees and funding

For unfunded children, fees are calculated for each term your child attends and divided between the months in that term and due on the 1st of each month.

Autumn term fees are due 1st Sept, Oct, Nov and Dec
Spring term fees are due 1st Jan, Feb, March (and April)
Summer term fees are due 1st May, June and July

As of February 2020 our fees are:

Morning Session (9-12) £16.00

Afternoon Session (12.30-3) £13.35

Lunch Period (12-12.30) £2.67

Full Day (9-3pm) £32.00

Hourly Rate £5.34

Enrolement Fee £55.00 (includes Little Gems T-shirt and a Little Gems bookbag)


We accept EYE funding for all three and four year olds (from the term after their third birthday) and two year olds who are entitled. We can help check your entitlement to funding. The standard funding is for up to 15 hours per week for 38 weeks a year. Some families may be entitled to an additional 15 hours if they are eligible, so up to 30 hours may be claimed. Your child can attend more hours than they are funded for depending upon our availability and you will be billed for this additional time. We will give you the form to claim funding which must be returned by the deadline. We also need to see your child’s birth certificate as proof of age.


In some cases, the government can help towards costs of childcare. Please click here to find out more about the different schemes.
