The Treehouse Pre-School is able to take up to 38 children per session. We accept children from the term after their 2nd birthday through to school age. We operate a waiting list which you are able to join at any time. We have three intakes a year: Spring Term, Summer Term and Autumn Term.
Our fees are presently £4.50 per hour (this is to be increased to £5.50 from 1st April 2022) for non-funded children.
Immediately prior to your child starting with us we carry out a home visit. At this visit we ask you to sign a fees agreement and we will give you the first invoice – this is payable on your child’s first session with us. Going forward invoices are issued to you on the 1st of each month and you are given two weeks in which to pay this. At our discretion we may be able to be flexible with payments if necessary. We do charge for illnesses and absences as we have to employ our staff on a termly basis.
We require six weeks notice should you decide to remove your child and if you remove your child you will need to pay for half a terms provision.
We take children who are eligible for 2 year funded provision. You are able to check with Buckinghamshire County Council to see the eligibility criteria and make an application at: (https://www.buckscc.gov.uk/services/education/early-years-and-childcare/funded-early-education-and-childcare/funded-childcare-for-2-year-olds/)
If you are eligible you must provide us with your eligibility code as soon as possible.
Your child will be eligible for funding the term after their third birthday. A funded place entitles your child for up to 15 universal hours each week and an additional 15 extended hours per week if you qualify for the 30 hours government funding (https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/).
If you are eligible for the extended offer you must let us have your eligibility code together with your National Insurance Number prior to the start of the term for which the extended offer applies.
