Using Government Funding to help with fees.

The kindergarten is registered with Devon County Council to offer the EYF (Early Years Funding) to all 3 and 4 year olds.

As per government and Devon County Council guidelines Venture Outdoor Kindergarten charges for additional services that are beyond the standard day-care nursery or preschool provision. This payment is the Outdoor Resource Fund which enables us to provide high quality outdoor education for our children. Primarily the Outdoor Resource Fund enables us to maintain high adult to child ratios / provide qualified Forest and Beach School practitioners / pay for a licence to operate on National Trust land.

If you wish to use EYF you will be invoiced for only £7.68 per day as opposed to £31.50.

If you already use EYF to pay for sessions at another nursery or preschool, you are welcome to use any left over funding to pay part of your child's fees at Venture Outdoor Kindergarten.

 

Please contact us for information on how this will affect what you will pay.

If you use EYF the enrolment fee of £30 will be refunded after one term's attendance unless the parent wishes to donate the enrolment fee to the kindergarten’s Outdoor Resource Fund. No refund of the enrolment fee will be made should your child not attend the kindergarten.
