For further details please refer to the Parents Handbook (Early Years section) on the school website.

Early Years Grant

Oakwood participates in the Early Years Grant Scheme, which entitles parents to 15 hours of London Borough of Croydon funding per week. Children are eligible in the term following their 3rd birthday until they are five years old (i.e. six terms in total). From September 2019 we will also be accepting the government extended 15 hours to those parents (if eligible) taking up a full time Nursery place. For more information and to find out if you are eligible for this please visit https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/. This additional funding only applies from the beginning of the term after your child turns 3 until they begin their Reception year. Once your child enters Reception the funding will reduce to the 15 hours.  Invoices are credited with the EY Grant.

Childcare Vouchers

We accept childcare vouchers provided by employers towards payment of fees whilst children are in the Nursery. We are already registered with a number of different providers, however if we need to register with a new provider this can usually be done fairly quickly. 

Fee Reduction

There are two types of fee reduction available:

  • Sibling discounts. From Reception, these are applied automatically at 25% for third child onwards.
  • Discretionary means-tested bursaries. To apply please contact the school.

Fees are payable in full on or before the first day of the term by Direct Debit unless alternative arrangements are agreed in advance.
