Fees, Payment  & Funding 

At One Small Step we work hard at reducing the burden that paying for childcare can place on families. The introduction of the extended funding for children aged 3 and 4 years has been a very unpredictable time for us and the flexibility of sessions that we offer. We separate ourselves from other childcare providers as we do not charge unnecessary fees as standard. These include:

  • We do not charge for bank holidays or our nursery holiday dates.
  • We do not charge registration fee.
  • Wrap around school collection and drop off service.

To make life easier, we offer a unique hourly rate. This means we are extremely parent friendly as you only pay for the hours you require. Current prices are:

0-5 years Hourly - £4.65

0-5 years 8 hour flexible day - £36.00

0-5 years Full day (7.30am-5.45pm) - £42.00

  • Minimum of 2 days childcare at any age.
  • Every child will receive 2 weeks holiday at half price throughout the year.
  • Fee’s must be paid monthly in advance on the 1st of every month.
  • We accept payment through bank transfers, childcare vouchers and tax free childcare.
  • Our fee’s are subject to annual review but may be revised at other times with reasonable notice. If you wish to withdraw your child from the nursery, we require one month’s written notice.

Tax free Childcare

Tax free childcare is a new way for parents to make payments for their childcare. For every 80 pence you pay into your government childcare account the government will top this up with 20pence tax free. This is to the value of £2000. The tax free childcare scheme may replace all childcare voucher companies after April 2018. Between now and then you can choose either vouchers or the tax free scheme.

You must register on the HMRC childcare portal - www.childcarechoices.gov.uk and create a government gateway account. You will be issued with an 11 digit number and you MUST keep this to make payments. 

Early Years Funded Entitlement

Early Education Entitlement is funded childcare * for all 3 and 4 year old and  for some 2 year olds who meet certain criteria. This childcare is funded by the government. Children are entitled to 15 hours term time or 11 hours stretched per week, starting from the term after their third birthday. You are able to book additional hours on top of these free hours if you would like to and depending on availability within the setting. From September 2017 the entitlement doubled to 30 hours term time or 22 hour strectched  per week for working families.
