Fees

Toddlers (2 year olds)

Camden Council is offering eligible two year olds free early education and childcare places for up to 15 hours per week during term time. Click here to find out more and apply. You can apply when your child is 18 months old.

At Thomas Coram we also offer Toddler provision for fee paying families who are not eligible for the free scheme:

  • Breakfast sessions ( 8.30-9.30am)
  • Core day ( 9.30am-3.30pm)
  • Tea club (3.30-5.30pm)
  • 38/ 44 weeks a year places available
  • Full and part-time places are available

If you are interested in a fee paying place please see the Nursery Fees Tariff 2021/22.

Please come and talk to us at the nursery or contact us on 020 7520 0385 or admin@thomascoram.camden.sch.uk if you have any further queries.

Kinder Children (3 and 4 year olds)

All three year olds are eligible for 15 hours (per week) Universal Funding provided by the government. This funding is available to the nursery the term following the child’s third birthday.

In addition to this, parents can find eligibility criteria and an online application form for a further 15 hours funding from HMRC here. HMRC will provide parents with an 11 digit code starting with ‘500’ if their claim is successful.

If the HMRC application is not successful, parents can find eligibility and an online application form for the Camden Enhanced Offer (CEO) here. This is only available to Camden residents.

If parents do not meet the eligibility criteria of either the HMRC or Camden Enhanced offers, your child may still be able to attend for our core or extended days as we also offer a fee paying provision:

  • Breakfast sessions ( 8.30-9.30am)
  • Core day ( 9.30am-3.30pm)
  • Tea club (3.30-5.30pm)
  • 38 week and 44 weeks a year places are available

If you are interested in a fee paying place please see the Nursery Fees Tariff 2021/22.

School Meals  (3 and 4 year olds) 

If a parent/carer believes that their child qualifies for entitlement to Free School meals (FSM) they should apply via the Camden website here.

If a child is not eligible for Free School Meals, parents/carers must pay for a school lunch after their child has turned three years old. The cost per day for a lunch is £2.40, which equates to £12 per week. As an example, if there are 60 school days in a term then the lunch money total cost based on 100% attendance would be 60 x £2.40 = £144.00 per child.

If a child is absent they will not be charged for meals. It is the parent/carer’s responsibility to subtract £2.40 for every day that their child is absent before making their payments. For example, if they only attends 4 days in a particular week they would only need to pay £9.60.

We ask parent/carer’s to set up a weekly or monthly standing order using the name of their child as the reference, so they can be certain that they are regularly paying for their child’s lunches.

Please come and talk to us at the nursery or contact us on 020 7520 0385 or admin@thomascoram.camden.sch.uk if you have any further queries.
