Busikids fee structure from 1st April 2024

From the 1st April 2024 Busikids will be implementing the “stretched” system for the allocation of the Government funding.

Currently we apply these 38 weeks of funding during term time only, from the 1st April this will be “stretched” over the 51 weeks that we are open.

This system will apply to all eligible children in the nursery.

Children aged 2 years and above will be entitled to 15 hours funding for 38 weeks of the year.

This is a total of 570 hours per year.

This means that 570 hours, divided by 51 weeks will give 11.17 funded hours every week throughout the year.

If eligible for 30 hours funding this will give 22.35 funded hours per week.

From the 1st April, we will no longer be offering any new term time only or teacher contracts.

A new consumables charge of £1.50 per funded hour will also be introduced from the 1st April. This charge covers all meals, snacks, and consumables (for example, extra-curricular activities, administration of the funding and general running costs etc).

We do not charge for Bank Holidays.

Invoices will be raised monthly for all children. 

Fees are to be paid, in advance, on the 1st of each calendar month.
