Please note that there is no fee to join the pre-school waiting list.
When your child is offered a place at the pre-school, parents are requested to pay a non-refundable £30 registration fee. For parents unable to pay this fee please speak to the pre-school manager when your child is offered a place.
Free Early Education Entitlement
Every child between the ages of 3 and 5 years is entitled to receive the Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) for up to 15 hours a week at a registered early years setting. Noor Ul Islam pre-school is registered to receive this grant and parents will not need to pay any additional top-up fees for the 15 hours. If a child is taking up the entitlement across two settings parents must indicate this on their child’s Parental Declaration Form.

30 hours free childcare
You may be able to get up to 30 hours free childcare (1,140 hours per year, which you can choose how you take). If you’re eligible for the extra hours, you sign up online to get a code to give to your childcare provider to reserve your place. You’ll get the extra hours once the next term starts.

We are a part of the government’s Tax-Free childcare scheme. If you are eligible for Tax-Free Childcare the government will pay £2 for every £8 you pay your childcare provider via an online account.
Early Years Pupil Premium
The Early Years Pupil Premium (EYPP) is additional funding early years settings receive to improve the quality of provision for disadvantaged 3 and 4 year old children. It applies to children in receipt of the FEEE from the term following their 3rd birthday. To find out more about the eligibility criteria for the funding please click here. Waltham Forest residents can also use this checker to see if their child qualifies for the funding.
The morning sessions finish at 11:45am, the afternoon sessions finish at 3:30pm. Parents are expected to be punctual in collecting their child. If any parent arrives 10 minutes or more late to collect their child (i.e. 11:55am/ 3:40pm or later) they will be charged a late fee of £5.00. This fee applies even if parents have asked someone else to collect their child and they are late.
Parents are requested to donate £1.00 per week to the snack tin (20p per day). This contributes to providing all our children with snack during the session, regular cooking activities, and refreshments for parties. Any parent who will have difficulties paying this should speak to the pre-school manager.
Children are offered the option of joining the pre-school’s book scheme which allows them to choose a book to take home at the end of each week to read with their families. To join this scheme parents/carers have to pay a deposit of £5.00, which will be refunded to them when the child leaves the pre-school. Parents will lose this deposit if books are returned damaged.
