Help with Fees

The government have implemented many ways to help with your nursery fees.

At Blue Pear Day Nursery and Pre-School we are happy to offer the following:

Early Years Entitlement 

15 hours Funded Childcare for 3&4 Year olds: 

Pre-School children are eligible for 15 hours per week during term time or the equivalent

over the course of the year.

We are able to receive government funding if you would like your child to access the 15 hours entitlement. We require you to complete a parent declaration form along with identity documents including your child's birth certificate. Your 15 free hours will be deducted from your monthly

invoice if your child attends the nursery for more than 15 hours. 

15 hours Funded Childcare for 2 Year olds: 

Some two year olds are also entitled to 15 hours funded childcare per week, during term time

or the equivalent over the course of the year.

Childcare vouchers 

We accept all major childcare vouchers including Kiddicare vouchers, Busy Bees, Sodexo and Computershare.

The amount you can get in childcare vouchers depends on how much you earn and when you joined

the scheme. You pay for your childcare before tax and National Insurance deductions are made,

making substantial savings in tax and national insurance per year.

Tax-Free Childcare 

This is government scheme to help working parents with the cost of childcare.

Parents can open an online account, which they can use to pay for childcare.

For every £8 a parent pays in, the government will pay in an extra £2. Parents can receive up to

£2,000 per child, per year, towards their childcare costs, or £4,000 for disabled children.
