From 24th April 2017, our fees will be £5.00* per hour. We do not offer discounted fees. We are registered to accept Early Years Education (EYE) Grants for every child aged over 3 years old, and for eligible 2 year olds. This entitles your child to either 15 or 30 hours free childcare per week, (subject to conditions).

The EYE Grant is payable directly to Pre-School from local Government. For all other fees we accept BACS, (our preferred method), Cash and Childcare Vouchers. Please ask at Pre-School for more information.

We offer a range of lunchtime choices. You can bring in a packed lunch from home, a meal which can be re-heated in a microwave, (items may be subject to restrictions if we have a child with a life threatening allergy), or at Parrywood Pre-School Eastleigh, we can order hot school meals, provided by a local primary school at £2.71 each, (all money goes to Hampshire County Council).

We provide healthy snacks throughout the day for all children, regardless of how long they stay.
