Cost variations
Hillside are offering all day sessions from 8/9am until 3pm in the school year before a child starts mainstream school. PM sessions are offered to 'rising threes' if morning sessions are full. The cost of the session is variable. Once children are government funded, there is the opportunity in the year before a child starts mainstream school to stay for lunch (parent to provide lunch) or all day 9am to 3pm depending on availability of spaces. We are able to offer 30 hours funded hours if the parent/child is eligible for this. We are currently consulting parents concerning offering preschool children the opportunity to attend After School Club in the year before they go to school. Government funding will not be able to be used.
