Fees

 

Tifly Daycare is a private nursery and childcare facility run by the Islamic Shakhsiyah Foundation Charitable Incorporated Organisation. Parents are therefore responsible for paying for their child’s fees. However the government provides parents with funding for early years education. Parents whose children are eligible may be entitled to some funded provision.

 

Is my child eligible?
Is your child 3 or 4 years old?

If so, the government’s Free Early Years Education Entitlement (FEEE) is obtainable the term after your child reaches 3 years old and is allocated up to and including the term in which they turn 5.

 

How much funding can I claim?
You may claim up to 15 hours free childcare per week. The grant can be applied through us for set 3 hourly sessions either in the morning or afternoon (in total 5 sessions) or over a period of three days. This will be discussed in further detail during your admissions interview.

 

What about the term in which my child turns three?
If you would like to enroll your 3 year old child who is not yet eligible for the grant you may be able to do so if a place is available, however you will need to pay for these sessions until your child is entitled to the funding.

 

What happens when my child is five years old?
Children who turn five will only receive the funding for the term in which they turn five. Hence a child turning five in the Autumn term will be funded for the Autumn term only, a child turning five in the Spring term will be funded up to and including that term and a child who turns five in the Summer term will receive funding for the whole academic year.

 

PAYMENT OF FEES

The fees are to be paid in full in advance of each term i.e. by 1st August for the Winter term, 1st of December for a child joining in the Spring term and 1st of April for child joining in the Summer term. Parents can claim childcare tax credits to cover the cost of this care. Please call the HMRC helpline on: 0300 200 3300.

 

Option A:
£900 per term for a 3 hour daily session (Monday to Friday)

Option B:
£1600 per term for full-time children (Monday to Friday) not entitled to funding. This is a discounted amount however when your child is eligible for the funding, if you would like to enroll them full-time you will receive a voucher for one daily session but will need to pay  the full amount of £900 for the additional daily session as outlined above in Option A.
