Session Times and Fees

Comberton Playgroup currently offers the full Government funded 15 or 30 hours free childcare to all eligible families, across all our morning and afternoon sessions. The funding does not cover Early Risers or lunchtime sessions.

We charge a £20 registration fee, but do not charge for extras such as nappies, snacks and drinks. We rely on generous donations from parents and carers for fresh fruit and snacks. Families provide children with their own packed lunches and nappies if needed.

Where space and staff ratios allow; extra sessions can be booked by prior arrangement.  Standard sessions that you have signed up for are non transferable.

We are open term times only, please see our term dates here.

We work with local childminders to provide before and after hours care, and holiday care. Some of our members of staff are registered childminders, providing continuity of care with familiar faces. Please ask a member of staff for further details.

The times and cost per session are currently:

Early Risers (8am – 9am) £5

Morning session (9am – noon) £13.50

Lunch (12pm – 1pm) £5.20 (a supervised packed lunch provided by parents)

Afternoon session (1pm – 4pm) £13.50

Messy Play (Monday and Thursday 9.30am -11am) £5

Fees are reviewed on a regular basis and we aim to only increase them yearly. Childcare vouchers are accepted.
