Fees & Costs

I understand first-hand the importance of flexible as well as affordable childcare. I will always try to accommodate your family’s needs, including extended hours, whenever I can. I operate an excellent service which is fair and competitively priced, offering a high quality, safe and stimulating environment for your child.

Hellys Angels is open 45 weeks of the year (excluding Bank Holidays), and our fee year runs from September 1stto the 31stAugust. We close for 2 weeks over the Easter and Christmas holiday periods in line with Cornwall Council’s School Holiday dates, and, for 3 weeks in August. We also close on the 8thMay, for Helston Flora Day. Occasionally, I will need to close to attend CPD training. As a licensed Thrive Practitioner, I need to attend a day’s annual training in order to maintain my license. I will give parents/carers plenty of notice so alternative childcare arrangements can be made, and parents/carers will not be charged.

Opening Hours

My opening hours are Monday to Friday, 7am-6pm.

I offer single sessions, full day care, or full-time weekly care sessions, as well as standard contracts (45 weeks) and Term Time Only contracts (38 weeks) to suit your needs:

Fees

I have different fees for different ages of children, (Under 3s and Over 3s) and for different types of contract (Standard and Term Time only). Please see below.

Sessions and Fees 2019 for 3, and 4 Year Olds

Term Time Only Contract – (45 weeks of the year + 4 weeks childminders holiday pay) 7am -6pm Monday to Friday

Families with 3 and 4-year-old children are entitled to 15 hours free childcare for 38 weeks (a total of 570 hours per year), as are some 2 year olds (subject to criteria). 

Working families (subject to criteria) with 3 and 4-year-old children, are entitled to 30 hours free childcare for 38 weeks (a total of 1,140 hours per year). Check the government’s Childcare Choices information page on https://www.childcarechoices.gov.ukfor further information and to check your eligibility.

This funding is intended to cover the hours of service provided by the childminder and does not cover the cost of the optional meals provided and additional costs, such as trips, and classes for example.

 

How you choose to use your funded place will depend on your personal circumstances and availability of the sessions. Funded places at Hellys Angels are available on a flexible basis and can be Term Time only or they can be factored into your existing childcare provision. For example, if you need your child to attend my setting for more than 15 or 30 hours a week, you can book sessions you require, and charges will be made for the hours over and above the funded place (i.e. the non-funded hours) at the standard setting rate. You may want to increase your attendance at the setting to take full advantage of the full entitlement

If parents/carers wish only to use their Free Education Entitlement hours, I can only offer this as a Term Time contract.

 

The standard 15 hours must be used as 5 x three-hour sessions

The standard 30 hours must be used as 10 x three-hour session
