Information for parents

This page will give you information about all the things you will find useful when your child joins Busikids, including information about funding, policies, forms, special needs access and codes for 'My Nametags' to order labels for your childrens clothing.

Busikids is open Monday to Friday from 7.30 for Breakfast Club if you choose this option - otherwise 8 am to 6 pm, 8 am to 1 pm or 1 pm to 6 pm, the pre-school does operate slightly different hours between this.

Our typical day is to welcome children and parents for Breakfast club, take hand over and settle the children with breakfast provided by Busikids. Following this the children will head off to their dedicated room as more children begin to arrive from 8 am, who are equally welcomed :)

We still offer breakfast between 8 am and 8.30 am as we are very aware of the big morning rush, this breakfast will be supplied by parents.

Each area does follow its own daily routine.  Generally we offer a  snack  at 10 am  then a healthy home cooked lunch at about 12 midday.

From 2 pm, milk is offered, followed by a cooked tea from about 4 pm.

The children will, of course, experience many different activities and learning experiences around these times, this is a broad outline to give you an idea of Nursery routines, please do look closer at each room for further details.

Government Funding 2024       childcare

The Government has now introduced their new childcare funding package for all children aged between two and three and five years.

To qualify for the full 30 hours of free childcare, each parent (or the sole parent in a single parent family) will need to earn, on average, the equivalent of 16 hours on the national minimum wage per week and no more than £100,000 per year. (A family with an annual household income of £199,998 would be eligible if each parent earns just under £100,000).

Self-employed parents and those on zero-hours contracts will be eligible if they meet the average earnings threshold.

The Government intends to make provision to support families where one parent is in receipt of benefits relating to caring responsibilities or has a disability and the other parent is working.

At Busikids, we are able to take a limited number of children attending just during term time, but you may still claim funding and attend all year round, fees will need to be paid for attendance not covered by the funding.

Following are links to help explain further, also we are happy to talk to any parent with questions regarding funding and availability for their children.

Our Fees are outlined on our Fees page
