Opening Times and Fees

Opening Times

Session run in term time, Monday to Friday, 9am to 1pm. Parents can choose to collect their children at either 12pm, or 1pm if they are staying for lunch. Lunch is provided as part of the lunch session and we cater for a variety of dietary requirements.


Government funding is available to cover the fees for children at Poppleton Road Playgroup and children can have up to 15 hours funded per week or up to 30 hours (for those children eligible) from the term after they turn 3 until they start school. You are entitled to split the funding between 2 settings for the 15 hours funding or 3 for the 30 hours funding. Should you choose to use all the funded hours elsewhere then the fees at playgroup will be £4 per hour. Fees are payable at the start of each half term.

We may occasionally ask for donation payments towards special trips and events, but will happily discuss this privately with parents and carers who may find such contributions difficult to meet.
