Meals for EEF Funded Children

Children in receipt of funding will either:

Provide all of their own meals and incidentals for the hours that the EEF are taken.  All meals must to adhere to our Healthy Eating Policy. (EEF only covers childcare and not the additional costs).

Or to pay a sum to the Nursery to cover all of the costs that are additional to the EEF childcare allowance. For example

Breakfast, Lunch, Tea, nappies, sun cream etc. this list is not exhaustive. We charge a daily rate of £8.25 with incidentals.

We will make the assumption that you wish for the Nursery to supply all foods and incidentals unless we are informed to the contrary in writing. At any point you can change between the two options, we need 2 weeks written notice of the intention to change.
