The structure of fees are as a direct result of:

  • - Our desire to deliver a smaller teacher to child ratio

EECP FUNDING 3-5 YEAR OLDS – UNIVERSAL 15 HOURS
 Wandsworth Council provide funding for Early Education Childcare Places, Universal 15 hour for 3 and 4-year olds, for up to 15 hours per week, 38 weeks a year.   A child is eligible for the EECP Universal 15 Hours the term after they turn 3.

The child's 3rd birthday needs to occur before December 31st, March 31st and August 31st to be eligible for the EECP the term following these dates. i.e. If a child is 3 in April then the grant will not come into operation until 1st September.

Wee Ones nursery will automatically apply to Wandsworth Council, on behalf of the parents, once a child turns 3 to claim the EECP universal 15-hour funding which is then deducted from their monthly invoices. The EECP provided by Wandsworth Council for 3 and 4-year-old children does not cover the total cost of placing a child into Nursery at Wee Ones.  

The amount you receive is paid pro rata and depends on the hours/amount of days your child attends.

Wee Ones provides a stretched entitlement as we are open for more than 38 weeks per year, so the hours are fewer but stretched over a longer period because we are open for longer periods.

HOW DO I RECEIVE PAYMENT FOR THE UNIVERSAL 15 HOUR
The EECP funding will be paid directly to Wee Ones. You will be required to sign the “Parent Declaration” from Wandsworth council stating that you are not receiving more than the hours you are entitled to at this or any other provider. As a Government requirement, the form is issued and signed 3 times a year, once you are in receipt of your free place. This applies to the Universal 15 hours funding and it is for children aged 3 and 4.

EXTENDED 15 HOURS (30 HOURS)
Some parents will be eligible for the Universal 15 and the Extended 15 (30 hours) funding. Parents themselves need to apply once their child is 3 with HMRC www.childcarechoices.gov.uk and complete the on-line application form. You will be supplied with a code which you need to give Wee Ones to authorise the funding, along with the National Insurance number and the full name of the parent claiming to confirm their entitlement to the free place. The HMRC issue a start date when a parent qualifies, and this is the first day that they can apply the funding to the headcount.

Wee Ones provides a stretched entitlement as we are open for more than 38 weeks per year, so the hours are fewer but stretched over a longer period because we are open for longer periods.

 

HOW DO I RECEIVE PAYMENT FOR THE EXTENDED 15 (30 HOURS)

As a Government requirement, the form is issued and signed 3 times a year once you are in receipt of your free place. This applies to Universal 15 hours and Extended 15 (30-hour) funding and it is for children aged 3 and 4.

Also, you must have completed an “Ethnicity Form” and provided Wee Ones with a proof of your child’s date of birth (either a photocopy of their birth certificate or passport). These are usually done when you start at the nursery.   

Please note that funding levels for the future are subject to Government decision.


INVOICING AND MAKING PAYMENTS
Invoices are prepared and sent out by email a couple of days prior to the new month. 

The preferred method of making payment is by BACS transfer – the bank details are on the invoice. We are not direct debit originators, so I am afraid payment by DD is not possible. 

You will see on the main body of the invoice the movement on your account.

If at any time you think we may have missed a payment – please get in touch, although please be advised that there can be quite a few days between the deduction from salary and the credit hitting our account (and we only credit your account when it hits our bank account).

Any under or over payment on your account is carried forward and is shown on the monthly invoice.  We do not refund money held on the account.

 

VOUCHERS – PAYING WITH CHILDCARE VOUCHERS
Paying with childcare vouchers is something you need to set up with your voucher provider and you will need instruct them to pay the vouchers to us. Please can you make sure that any voucher payments made to us are referenced with your child’s name, so we know who's account to credit.

We do have accounts with many providers but if you are using a different one you may be asked for our Ofsted number which is EY364321. Our bank account details which are; NatWest Account number - 69555664 Sort Code; 60-22-28.

- This will now only apply to children that are currently using this system. New starters will apply for the new Tax-Free Child fund, this needs to be applied for at HMRC.

- Wee Ones accepts work placement vouchers.

- Wee Ones offers a sibling discount of 10% off the child paying the lesser amount.

- Please note that siblings must be at the nursery at the same time for the discount to apply.

- Our fees are payable in advance on a monthly basis.

- Notice of leaving is required two full calendar months in advance. Should you want to decrease your days, we require 12 weeks’ notice, please note we do not swop days but if you require a different booking pattern we require 12 weeks’ notice and it depends on availability.

- We are registered with Ofsted

“I have always believed that if a child is given beauty, they treat things with respect; if a child is given dignity, they treat others with respect; if a child is given freedom to express themselves and is listened to, they learn self respect.”
