Fees and Funding
The fees are £12.75 per session for 2-3 year olds this would be a morning session or an afternoon session, payments are required in advance and can be paid via Parentpay. Fees must still be paid if your child is absent. The Happy Hearts team should be informed as soon as possible if your child is unable to attend and you should inform us when your child will be returning. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to the Happy Hearts manager. For your child to keep his/her place at Happy Hearts you must pay the fees.

How many sessions does the 2 year funding pay for?
Currently, you can claim for eligible 2 year old children fifteen hour per week for 38 weeks of the year. These sessions do not have to be taken at one Child-minder or Nursery provider, but you will have to fill in a ‘Funding Form’ at each setting your child attends and you can only claim for up to 15 hours a week in all. When you fill in a ‘Funding Form’ all this information will be given to you by a member of staff.
