We have a variety of methods to pay Preschool fees. We do not have the facility to receive cash or cheques.
School Gateway – is our online payment facility made via smartphone app or website. When we have received your child’s Admission Forms and have recorded your e-mail address & phone number you can activate your account. If your child continues on to Watton at Stone Primary and Nursery School this account can also be used to pay for school trips/ dinners/ Out of School Clubs etc.
Vouchers and Tax-Free - We can also receive payments through the tax-free childcare scheme and childcare vouchers. Please speak with the Admin Team if you wish to use these. For more information about these schemes you can visit: https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
