We understand that children become unwell or may miss sessions for various other reasons (inc. Bank holidays) but to ensure the sustainability and smooth running of the service, we must take payment for all sessions that parents have booked.

For children attending part time/flexible full day care we request that parents agree a minimum booking on registration and pay for these days each week.

We do try to be as flexible as possible to accommodate your needs, change days weekly etc. but at times particular days may be fully booked. You are also welcome to book set days every week and then your child’s day/days are secure, and you do not risk the chance that we are fully booked.


The service requires a booking deposit when returning registration form for ECCE Preschool. This deposit is fully returned once your child is registered on the DCYA ECCE Scheme, usually by end of September.

This deposit is not refundable should you cancel your child’s ECCE place.
