Registration and Fees
We would like to invite you to telephone the Kindergarten to make an appointment to visit and collect a registration form.
If, however, it is not possible for you to come into the school, then please download our registration form and return it via post or email, along with the registration fee. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Any child may be registered from birth as, apart from priority for siblings, they are accepted purely on a 'first come, first served' basis. Registration does not guarantee a place due to the limited number of spaces available.
We have a two termly intake, children may join us in January (Spring Term) and September (Christmas Term).
A registration fee of £125 is charged, which is non-refundable.
We offer the Government's 15 hours per week 'Universal Entitlement' funding for 3 & 4 year olds.
Funding is available to all parents from the term after their child's 3rd birthday and is approximately £900 per term. Funding amounts vary according to the length of each term.
Families who would like to access the free 15 hours per week only and do not wish to pay for any additional hours or services can contact Westminster’s FIS service by email who will direct them to an appropriate provider: email@example.com
Childcare vouchersWe accept childcare voucher payments and are signed up with a number of providers, including the Government's Tax Free Childcare Scheme.
We are also participate in Enjoy Benefit's Workplace Nursery Scheme.
2022/23 academic year
There are three terms in the academic year and fees are paid termly. Each term is comprised of two sessions per day:
- Caterpillar Session (2 to 3 years old): Five mornings from Monday to Friday*
Timing: 8.45 am to 12 pm
* Once YEK believes that a child is ready, they will have the option of attending afternoon sessions for 1, 2 or 3 days (Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays) until the end of their first year. This extends the school day to 3 pm.
- Butterfly Session (3 to 5 years old): Five mornings and three full days on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays*
Timings: Morning: 8.45 am to 12 pm; Full Day: 8.45 am to 3 pm
* Children will have the option to attend 1 more full day on Tuesdays when YEK believes they are ready.
Outings during the term will be charged as an extra. All children are automatically opted in for freshly prepared lunches (if applicable to their session) as an additional charge.
Please note that all fees are subject to review every year, which usually takes place in August.
In common with most other schools, we charge a deposit when you accept a place for your child.
The deposit is currently £2,000 and this amount is payable when we confirm a place for child. Places are offered approximately one year before they are due to start. The deposit, which is strictly non-refundable, is deducted from the fees for your child's last term at the Kindergarten.
All term fees are payable strictly in advance. A full term's notice of withdrawal must be given in writing, otherwise one term's fee will be charged.
