As a community based preschool, Tiggers tries to keep its fees as low as possible.

At Tiggers we offer a total of 6 Preschool sessions during term times; Monday – Friday 9:15am – 12:15pm and Tuesdays 12:15pm – 3:15pm.

The government has committed to provide 15 hours of funded childcare per week for all children from the age of 3 years to school age (30 hours for those who meet a certain criteria) and also for 2 – 3 year olds who fit certain criteria.  Tiggers accepts government vouchers for children. The fee for 2-3 year olds is £15.60, and for 3 year olds who do not use vouchers, is £13.50 per session. In addition there is a one off £20 registration fee.  In order for Tiggers to operate on a stable financial footing, and to avoid too many fund raising events, the Committee also asks all parents to pay a non-mandatory fee of £3.30 per session. If you have any questions about this please contact the Chairperson.

Lunch Club – Need an Extra Hour of Childcare!

Tiggers operates a lunch club at an additional cost of £7 per session (minimum of 6 children signed up for it to run). All you need to do is sign up a week in advance and bring in a healthy labelled packed lunch box (sandwich, fruit, yogurt, drink etc) on the day. It couldn’t be easier! You will then be invoiced for your lunch club sessions at the end of each month. In Lunch Club children stay for an additional hour, during which they eat their packed lunch together and enjoy more Tiggers time! Pick up time is 1.15pm.

Tuesday Afternoon Sessions

Every Tuesday Tiggers offers an extended session until 3.15pm which can help prepare your child for Primary School. If you would like your child to attend this session it can be booked in advance in half-term blocks, or on a weekly basis. Please contact to book your place or for more information.

Tiggers also offers Ad-Hoc Flexi-Spaces called ‘Drop ‘n’ Shop’ sessions.

If you need some extra childcare and have a busy week why not book an extra session for your child, please speak to the Supervisor or email in advance of the day to check availability and book your space! Flexi-spaces cost £20 per session and must be booked before you drop your child off (the Tiggers’ phone is on from 8.30am). Any sessions will be added to your invoice at the end of the month.

It’s an amazing asset for the village and surrounding community, with lovely supportive staff.
