Frequently asked questions

What age do you take children from?

Aged 2, however this is limited to 4 aged 2 children per session

Do you take funding?

Yes we take both universal funding and extended funding (30 hours) from the term after a child’s 3rd Birthday.

What other payments do you take?

We take cash, cheque or direct bank transfer, we also take childcare voucher schemes.

How often are fees paid?

Fees are invoiced at the beginning of each half term for that half term period.

How do you track my child’s progress?

We use a system called Tapestry to keep a record of each child’s journal, parents have access to it and are able to contribute to it. We also plan ‘Next Steps’ for each child, keep a scrap book and a diary (children at appropriate development level).

Do you operate term time only?

Yes we run 38 weeks per academic year, this closely follows the term dates of the local schools.

Do children automatically go to Felbridge School?

No the majority of children transition to Felbridge but we have children transition to other schools in the area. We have no influence over the schools admission process and you are at no more of an advantage in securing a school place at Felbridge Primary school by sending your child to Stay and Play.
