Bank holidays are payable and cannot be swapped however our fees are only charged at 50weeks to cover these. Payment is still required if a child is absent due to sickness.
We offer the first 2 settling in sessions where available at no cost to help your child settle in. If anymore settling sessions are required, we will charge £7. We ask you to pay a deposit of £100 to secure your child’s place, which is refundable when they leave the Nursery.
One months’ notice is required prior to leaving. We will invoice you a month in advance, any additional sessions booked during the month will be shown on the following month’s invoice.
If you have any further questions regarding our fees, please get in touch and we’ll be happy to help. If you’d like to enrol your child with us please complete our registration form.
The Early Years Free Entitlement (EYFE) is a statutory entitlement for all 3 & 4 year olds and some 2 year olds. The universal entitlement is for a maximum of 15 hours per week over 38 weeks per year, or 570 hours stretched across the year. However, from September 2017 an additional 15 hours 'extended funding hours' was introduced if parents/carers meet the eligible criteria. The entitlement is for a maximum of 30 hours per week, over 38 weeks per year, or 1,140 hours stretched across the year.
Children can receive their EYFE from the start of term after their 3rd (or 2nd if eligible) birthday, see the table below.
Child’s birthday Eligible for EYFE from
1st January – 31st March 1st April
1st April – 31st August 1st September
1st September – 31st December 1st January
At Charley Barleys we ask that children attend a minimum of 2 sessions per week. This is to ensure continuity and the well-being of your child. It also gives the key person more time with them, enabling greater learning and development within the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS).
At Charley Barleys we ‘stretch’ the EYFE across 47.5 weeks of the year to a maximum of 12 hours or 24 hours each week, we offer 3 hours EYFE within our half days sessions and 6 hours in a full day for all families. However, parents/carers entitled to 30 hours EYFE, we offer 4 hours EYFE within our half day sessions and 8 hours in a full day. Childcare is charged across 50 weeks of the year (we are closed for one week at Christmas and statutory bank holidays). Funding rate fees will apply for all sessions attended in 2.5 weeks each year (dates to be notified to parent/carers in advance) and after the maximum EYFE entitlement has been applied to all other sessions.

For the universal 15 hour EYFE entitlement, you can request your child attends for the free EYFE hours only, these can be taken Monday to Friday 1pm to 4pm for a maximum of 4 sessions per week for 47.5 weeks or 5 sessions for 38 weeks, these are subject to availability. There is also the option for either a Monday or Friday full day and an additional half day session, the day will depend on availability for 47.5 weeks only.
For the extended 30 hour EYFE entitlement, you can request your child attends for the free EYFE hours only, these can be taken Monday to Friday 1.15pm to 6pm for a maximum of 5 sessions per week for 47.5 weeks subject to availability.
If your child also attends another setting or school nursery class please discuss with us for further clarification of EYFE.
Invoicing including EYFE sessions
As Charley Barleys charges for 50 weeks, EYFE and the cost for non-EYFE hours are spread evenly over your monthly invoices, so the amount payable for nursery fees remains the same throughout the year.
We will calculate your monthly invoice as follows:
[weekly cost (including EYFE sessions) x 47.5 weeks] + [weekly cost x 2.5 weeks]
