Dear Parent/Carer,

We invite you all as members of the playgroup to attend this short meeting so we can vote for the changeover at the EGM.

Playgroup Fees from September 2018

Dear Parents/Carers

The committee have met to review the current fees charged by the Playgroup.  We have not raised the fees in two years for Playgroup and four years for Breakfast Club, but unfortunately now feel it is time to do so.

This is not a decision that we take lightly. At Kennington Playgroup we are extremely lucky to have a wonderful team, who all have or are working towards a level 3 (or equivalent) childcare qualification.  We recognise that to retain and reward our excellent team, as well as invest in new resources to further enrich the children’s experiences and development, we need to increase fees.  The committee has compared our fees with local pre-schools and playgroups to ensure we are in line with other settings.

With effect from September 2018 the new level of fees will be:

Morning session (9am – 11.30am) £15.00
Lunch Club (11.30am – 12.30pm) £6.00
Afternoon session (12.30pm – 3pm) £15.00
Breakfast Club (8am – 9am) £5.75  (including breakfast)

Fees are charged to those children not in receipt of funding, or those who attend in excess of their funded hours.

If you have any queries about the fees, please do not hesitate to speak to Sarah Thomas or a member of the committee.  We would also be delighted to speak with you if you’d like to know more about the role of the committee or would be interested in getting involved.

Kind regards,

Kennington Playgroup
