Registration Fee

We ask that each family pay a £2 registration fee, each year they register their child/children.

Parents will not be asked for any further contribution other than if their child takes part in trips or special events.




Leicester City Council funding only covers staff wages and basic bills. 

We fundraise to purchase materials and equipment to make activities possible for the children.

We hope to raise £200 from registration fees.

Children choose what we spend the money on from the list advertised in the building.
