Acceptance of Place Deposit

The Acceptance of Place Deposit is a sum of money payable on acceptance of place. The deposit is retained by the school as part of its general funds but is returned (without interest) within 3 weeks of the end of the child’s final term less outstanding fees and charges and subject to correct notice being given.

Ringrose Kindergarten offers a two year programme.  We do not normally accept children on a short term basis however, under exceptional circumstances, the Headmistress may allow shorter periods providing all possible eventualities are discussed and agreed in writing in advance.  The deposit will be retained by the school if your child does not attend the full programme; September intake (6 terms) January intake (5 terms).

Ringrose Kindergarten Chelsea is a ‘registered provider’ of the Childcare Costs Element of the Universal Credit. This is a scheme where all 3 to 4 year olds can get up to 570 free childcare hours per year.  It’s usually taken as 15 hours at a set rate a week for 38 weeks. Ringrose Kindergarten Chelsea generally operates over three terms totalling 33 weeks a year (and not 38 weeks) and the funded hours are offered between 9am to 12pm each day during term time.

Ringrose Kindergarten Chelsea will assist you with this process by applying on your behalf to the Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea each term following your child’s 3rd birthday.

However, parents should be aware that the funding provided does not cover the total cost of placing their child at Ringrose Kindergarten Chelsea therefore we charge parents an Additional Service Package.

Parents need to be aware that the Universal Credit amount received by Ringrose Kindergarten will vary slightly each term (as will the resulting Additional Service Package charged to parents) because it is based on the exact length of each term.
