Full day places    8.45 - 3.30 The children should attend every day, either full days or a combination of part time and full days.

Working parents may be entitled to a further 15 hours/week of childcare (30 hours/extended entitlement).  To check if you are eligible, please see the link below:



The extended funding does not cover childcare over the 45 minute lunch break.  This will be charged at £6.00/day.  Lunch is not provided, the children bring a packed lunch.


Parents who are not eligible for extended funding have the option to pay for the afternoon sessions @ £8/hour + £6.00 for the lunch period = £30/day.


Collis will invoice parents at the beginning of each half-term.


Terms and Conditions

We ask for a half-term’s notice if you decrease the number of full day sessions.

You may increase the number of full day sessions at any time, subject to availability.

Childcare for the lunch period will be invoiced each half-term in advance.

Lunchtime and afternoon session costs will not be refunded if your child is absent for any reason.
