In the interests of your child’s wellbeing and educational development, we recommend that our Explorers (children who will become 3 years of age between September and August) attend at least 3 morning or afternoon sessions per week, and that our Adventurers (children who will become 4 years of age between September and August) attend at least 5 morning or afternoon sessions per week.

Early years funding entitlement will be deducted from these costs.  Full fees charged for all bank holidays. No charge for 2 weeks holiday per annum for all year round children, which is deducted at the end of their final term at The Croft once a full year has been completed.
