Currently, discounts on prices are discussed, and given, solely at the discretion of the Managing Director. However, there are other ways to potentially save a significant portion of your fees with us. As we are a registered childcare provider with Ofsted, eligible parents could claim back, depending on the aid they are claiming, up to 85% of their tuition fees with us. All childcare assistance is discussed at our office - please determine what services you would like from us first, then arrange an appointment with us so we can aid you in the process.
