Having fun since 1967
Reg Charity Number :1077794
Now for the practical details...
We are open Monday - Friday from 9.00 until 12 noon, afternoon sessions are currently Tuesday and Thursday 1pm - 3.30pm. (Increasing in Spring term or if there is sufficient demand beforehand).
We are now also running a Lunch Club; this runs from 12 - 1pm Tues-Thurs. It's on a daily sign up basis, costs £7 and you provide your child with a packed lunch.
We are based in Dorset Road W5, at the junction of Dorset Rd, Overdale Rd and Trent Avenue in what was the Sherman Labour Hall but is now the Ealing Christadelphian Hall. We accept children from the age of 2 (although our afternoon sessions are mainly for children aged 2 and a half upwards, those not needing a nap basically).
Fees are paid half-termly in advance at £21 per session (£17-50 for PM sessions). We also charge an additional services fee of £20 each half term - this covers the costs of outside services like Tennis, Rugby, Rainbow Fairy etc. The children love these extra sessions and we try to book them so everyone experiences everything over the course of the year.
Children qualify for 3 yr old funding the term after they are 3. We are also registered with various workplace related childcare voucher schemes. (Accor, Care4, Allsave, Kiddicare and Busy Bees.) We are more than happy to accept childcare vouchers from any other company, just let us know the details.
We also accept referrals for 2 yr old funded places.
Whilst we don't have the ability to offer the full 30 hours free childcare, we are able to offer up to 20 hours, or to offer extended hours if your child attends elsewhere (this includes if your child is attending a school nursery AM class as we currently have 2 PM sessions available).
There are conditions to meet for the 30 hours, you can find more info here
To receive funding for this term you MUST have got your eligibility code BEFORE September 1st, and if you are looking at claiming it in January (it comes into effect the term AFTER your child turns 3) please look into your eligibility now.
It is YOUR responsibility to ensure you renew your codes on time
Children usually attend for 2 or 3 mornings per week, but you may choose as few or as many sessions as you wish for your child, providing we have the space available. A New Starter leaflet is sent to you before your child is ready to join the Playgroup which will give you further information about what to expect.
