Fee Schedule from January 2018
“My name is Carole Anne Benson and I am the co-owner of the Tudor House Montessori Group. The group was formed over 20 years ago and I am so proud of all the settings in our group. I would like to thank you for your interest in my nurseries and invite you to telephone us for a visit. All six nurseries are small caring environments where the children can grow and flourish under the care of my qualified professional team of nursery practitioners. Many of my team members have been with me since I set up my first nursery.
We follow the philosophy of Maria Montessori concentrating in developing in children a lifelong love of learning. Montessori teaching encourages children to become able, confident and independent learners in harmony with the Early Years Foundation State (EYFS) (DfE2017). Our logo at all our nurseries is “Love grows here” which is evident when you visit us and we work towards excellence in every aspect of nursery life.

All children are eligible for 15 hours per week the term after their third birthday. At our term time only nurseries we provide 15 free hours per week. At our day nurseries we provide 11 hours per week spread across the year.
30 hours funding for eligible parents
At our day nurseries we stretch the 30 hours to 22 hours across the year. Meals will be charged at an hourly rate.
Time outside the free hours will be charged at our standard rate.
Example:- 2 Full days would cost £21.63 including breakfast, lunch and tea.
At our Hickory and Lindfield we will deliver 30 free hours.
Example:- Lindfield Montessori 9 -3 across 5 days No fees payable
Hickory Montessori 8.30 – 3.30 across 4 days (28 hours) No fees payable
Any time outside these hours will be charged at our normal rate (see fee structure).
Please note it is the parent’s responsibility to apply for 30 hours funding via HMRC website and to reconfirm their eligibility when reminded by the HMRC. Parents are responsible to make sure the nursery has all reference codes within the appropriate time scale or no funding will be allocated and normal rates payable.
Employment based voucher payment schemes
Many parents currently use work based vouchers to help pay for their childcare. As of 1st April 2018, NO NEW PARENTS can join a work based voucher scheme. Therefore employment based voucher schemes are being phased out in favour of TAX FREE CHILDCARE via HMRC (details on the HMRC website).
To facilitate an orderly withdrawal from the numerous voucher schemes currently in operation, the Tudor House Montessori Group will no longer accept employment based voucher payments from 1st September 2018.
This means if necessary that parents can apply to HMRC to set a Tax Free Childcare account. Once an account has been set up you will be given a reference code which should be emailed to Roy Benson at email@example.com.
Parents will also need to cancel their current voucher payments, via their employer, before 1st September 2018.
Parents made need to check their account balance in their voucher scheme to ensure all monies are paid over before the 1st September 2018.
As with any change there are bound to be some issues that arise but the Tudor House Montessori Group will do their utmost to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. Please contact Roy Benson direct to discuss any concerns you may have 01444 254289.
