Fees

Whether you are searching for a nursery, pre-school or main school place for your child, we work hard to ensure our fees are affordable, flexible and offer exceptional value.

Below are details of our current Nursery and School fees. However, if you have any questions, or wish to discuss any aspect of what we offer, please get in touch.

 

Early Years Entitlement 

Academic Year 2019/2020

Every child from the term after they turn 3 years old is entitled to 570 hours of free early years education per year with a maximum of 15 hours per week.

Some children are eligible for an additional 15 funded hours, which gives a total of 1,140 funded hours each year. These 30 hours each week can be accessed at Our Lady’s by children attending three, four or five days each week. These hours are only offered stretched over 51 weeks. Discounts are applied for full-time places and more sessions attended.  

EYFE only places

For those parents wishing to access a Nursery place for only the EYFE of 15 hours/week, a limited number of places are offered in a flexible pattern subject to availability and a waiting list. There is no administration fee or deposit held for pupils accessing these places.

Selecting your EYFE provider

Within Wokingham Borough, there are a variety of Early Years providers offering the EYFE entitlement. Some may offer the EYFE entitlement only, without access to any additional services. Others may offer it over fewer hours of the week, or fewer weeks of the year. Parents are encouraged to choose a service provider which best meets their needs. Our Lady’s Nursery offers flexible sessions to fit in with the free entitlement terms and conditions.

Charges for additional services

All additional charges are included in the fees quoted above and are charges for additional services that apply to Nursery fees outside of the EYFE 15 hours/week entitlement. These include, but are not exclusively limited to:

We are unable to offer refunds on any sessions that your child does not attend.

Unfortunately, we are also unable to swap days as this can affect ratios and staffing.
