fees and pricing
We are completely transparent about our fees and on this page you will find all details of all of our costs with no hidden fees.
To register your child at our Pre-School we ask for an up front charge of £80. Included in this price is a brand new high quality and durable waterproof outerwear. You will receive this along with your new starter information prior to your child starting with us.
