DS's Playschool charges £3.50 per hour - he goes 10.5 hours a week. We're in Manchester

£7 for each 2.5 hour session, until the term after the childs 3rd birthday when it's free.
Ds will be attending twice a week from September.

£12.50 for a 3 hour session. Once the child turns 3, they get the nursery funding from the govt which is about £8.50 per session (I think).

We're in North London.

We are trying to put our pre-school fees up (currently £7.93 which used to match what a funded child got) but the chairperson is having none of it.

We are in Surrey, I am the chair we have matched the fees to the grant which I think is £8.90 here at the moment, it will go up to whatever Surrey set for this year in Jan (they let us know too late for September fees). Only under 3's pay fees unless they are using their free sessions elsewhere.

mankyscotslass Tue 08-Jul-08 14:06:58

Sorry meant to add,we are in Tameside, Greater Manchester.

CarGirl Tue 08-Jul-08 14:09:35

Surrey NEG has been announced today £9.20 per session. Our pre-school (charitable) cannot break even on that especially since Surrey county council put our rent up!!!!

east midlands - before I got vouchers I paid £2.50 per hour.
