Our centre offers the ’20 hours ECE’ initiative for 3 and 4 year olds which reduces the cost of fees for this age group. Funding rates for the ’20 hours ECE’ have been calculated to cover the minimum regulated standard of care. At Rainbow Cottage we offer excellent adult:child ratios (4:25), and B4 extension programme for older children, and trips away from the centre. Our ‘quality charge’ is kept to a minimum but enables us to provide these opportunities.
