New Marston Pre-School is parent run and depends on regular fee payments.  Parental involvement and support is vital to us.


Voluntary Maintenance Donation

Each term we ask for a suggested Voluntary Maintenance Donation (VMD) of £25. This is not compulsory but any payments are gratefully received as there is a widening gap between the childcare funding rate that we receive from the government and the actual cost of providing childcare. The VMD helps us to cover the costs of the maintenance of the building, and the purchase of equipment and supplies to provide a fun, safe and stimulating environment for our children. We appreciate everyone’s financial position is different and you may wish to contribute a larger or smaller amount. ALL contributions are welcomed.


Gift Aid

New Marston Pre-School is a registered charity, all voluntary donations can be increased by 25% under the Government Gift Aid scheme at no additional cost to you.  You will also receive a tax benefit through your own tax assessment. 


Free Early Education Funding for 3 and 4 year olds

All 3 and 4 year old children are eligible for up to 15 hours free funding per week, the term after their 3rd birthday.

Child’s 3rd Birthday Funding Commences  
1st January-31st March After Easter holiday    
1st April-31st August After Summer holiday    
1st September-31st December After Christmas holiday    


Additional Funding and Financial Support

30 hours free childcare

You may be able to get 30 hours free childcare. Your eligibility depends on:

  • if you are working
  • your income (and your partner’s income, if you have one)
  • your child’s age and circumstances
  • your immigration status

You can get 30 hours free childcare at the same time as claiming Universal Credit, tax credits, childcare vouchers or Tax-Free Childcare.

We can claim 15/30 hours free Early Educational Funding on your behalf from the local authority.  You will need to complete a Parental Declaration form each term.

Please note that Pre-School cannot always offer all eligible children a full 15/30 hours. You can, however, choose to split this funding between Pre-School and another provider.


Free Education and Childcare for 2-year-olds

Your 2-year-old can get free childcare if you live in England and get one of the following benefits:

  • Income Support
  • income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance (JSA)
  • income-related Employment and Support Allowance (ESA)
  • Universal Credit, and your household income is £15,400 a year or less after tax, not including benefit payments
  • tax credits, and your household income is £16,190 a year or less before tax
  • the guaranteed element of Pension Credit
  • the Working Tax Credit 4-week run on (the payment you get when you stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit)
