Fees and Funding

In Northamptonshire there is a universal offer of up to 15 funded hours for all 3 and 4 year olds.  In addition, some 2 year olds are entitled to similar funding.  For more information and to check eligibility please use the links below:


Some families are eligible to claim 30 hours funding. To find out the criteria, using your personal details please access: http://www3.northamptonshire.gov.uk/councilservices/children-families-education/early-years/information-for-childcare-providers/funding/Pages/30-hours-childcare-for-working-parents-of-3-and-4-year-olds.aspx

Little Oaks cannot guarantee the full 30 hours entitlement if we are running at full capacity. However we may be able to offer additional sessions over the 15 funded hours, depending on availability in the year your child attends.

For non-funded children Little Oaks charge the following:

Play Group £13.25 per session (minimum of 3 sessions).

Pre-School – £13.25 per session (if your funding has been used at other settings or you require more than your 15 hours free entitlement).

Breakfast Club – £4.00 per session.

Lunch Club  – £3.50 per session (Age 3+).

For information regarding fees, sessions and admissions for children joining Little Oaks from September, please see our Admissions and Fees and Charging Policies (See link below).

We also offer the optional extra for all children aged 3 and over to attend Breakfast and Lunch club sessions.

Unlike many Pre-Schools, we do not insist that fees are paid up front at the beginning of each term which allows you to choose whether to pay termly or weekly. However, if you pay weekly, the money MUST be paid on the child‛s first session of the week. Failure to do so will result in a late payment charge being automatically added to all outstanding amounts at the end of each week.  If you choose to pay by BACS (which is our preferred method of payment) we request that exact amounts are credited to the account for easy administration.Alternatively, you can choose to pay for fees via weekly direct debit.

Once your child reaches an age at which they are entitled to free Early Years Funding then no fees are payable . For more information about eligibility and for details of payment procedures please see our Fees and Charging Policy. For information on Admissions, please visit our Admissions Policy.
