OLRPS is a non-profit-making organisation. Income from fees is used to pay the rent, staff wages and insurance, and pay for equipment and other necessities. Bills are issued termly, and fees are payable at the beginning of each term. Parents should speak to the pre-school leader if there is a problem. The pre-school is registered to receive childcare vouchers from several organisationsAll absences, whether planned or due to ill-health, must be paid for. Please give half a term’s notice if your child is to leave the pre-school or reduce their sessions.

Government Funding

At the present time, government funding is available for children in the term after their second birthday if the families provide evidence of being in receipt of certain state benefits and satisfy other criteria. Please ask for details or more information is available on the Government website. Please note this government funding is not guaranteed and is out of our control.

In the term after the third birthday, all children are entitled to have access to up to 15 hours of funded pre-school care. From February 2023, if your child is entitled to 30 hours childcare, we will be offering a limited number of places. Click here to check if you qualify for 30 hours child care. From April 2024, all 2 year olds born before 31st March 2022, will be eligable for 15 hours of funded childcare if their parents are working and fulfill certain criteria.

The government funding only covers a certain number of sessions each term: you will receive a termly invoice for any amounts over this, charged at £9.00 per hour. The funding situation is constantly changing. Please ask the pre-school leader for the latest details.

Government funding is insufficient and doesn’t cover the cost of the childcare we provide. If you are in a position to help by making a donation to cover the shortfall between the funding and the cost of childcare, PLEASE DONATE HERE. THANK YOU!

TESTIMONIAL

I am so grateful to the OLR staff for everything and please send my thanks to Michelle especially. Max and I both love preschool and I really wish I could have been there today to tell that to the Ofsted inspectors!
