Because of the 2 year old grant, parents at Lancashire Hill are not charged for their children attending nursery. Extra day to day running costs, snacks etc are funded by Charnwood Trust from donations and fundraising. If parents want their children to have extra time in nursery to meet their own employment or study  commitments, this can often be arranged, but there may be a small charge for this.
When Charnwood arranges a subsidised trip for children and parents together a small but meaningful contribution is sought from families for their participation.
