Fees and Funding

Puddleduck's fees are £4.00 per hour. Each three hour sessions is £12.00 and a full day session is £26.00. A 50p per hour reduction is given to a second fee-paying child.

Lunch club is charged at £6.00.

Fees are payable every half term. Invoices are sent out at the start of each term by email. We welcome electronic payment of fees. If advance payment is a problem we will try to find a method of payment to suit your personal circumstances; please contact our bookkeeper, Natasha Hall (This email address is being protected from spambots.

In the school term after their third birthday, a child is eligible for Early Years Funding for up to five sessions a week. Puddleducks apply for this funding and so sessional costs to parents are nil. Children whose parents choose to have their entitlement of Early Years Funding paid to another childcare provider will be charged the sessional fee.

We are also able to accept the government funding for eligible two year olds. This scheme is called 'Take2' and offers up to 15 hours of free early learning and childcare per week. If you have received a letter telling you that you are eligible, please bring this letter with you when your child starts. If you have not received a letter but think you may still be eligible for this funding, you can find out online at www.norfolk.gov.uk/Two-year-old_free_childcare. You will be able to check if you are eligible, find a childcare provider and complete a claim form.

Puddleducks is open for 38 weeks a year in line with the school term dates set by Norfolk County Council. No charge will be made during the school holidays.
