Free entitlement for 3 and 4 year olds

Every child is entitled to up to 15 hours per week free childcare. This entitlement is available from the start of the first full term after the child’s third birthday. The hours may be split across 2 providers. For more information please take a look at our free entitlement fact sheet on our Downloads page.

Rub-A-Dub does not stipulate when you have to use your free entitlement and any funding you choose to use with us we will claim from Wiltshire County Council.

30 hours free childcare

If both parents work, either employed or self-employed (or if you work and are a lone parent) and you each earn below £100,000 a year you may also qualify for an additional 15 hours of free childcare per week. You can find more information about this entitlement on Wiltshire Council website or the Childcare Choices site.

Free entitlement for 2 year olds

Some parents may meet the criteria to receive free childcare for their 2 year old. Please visit the Wiltshire Council website for more information.

Fees

If you are not entitled to any of the above or wish to pay for additional hours our fees are £4.50 per hour for children under 3 years old and £4.35 per hour for over 3’s. Fees include a healthy morning and/or afternoon snack.

WE DO NOT APPLY ADDITIONAL CHARGES OR RESTRICT WHEN YOU CAN USE YOUR FUNDED HOURS - PROVIDING THERE ARE SPACES AVAILABLE WE WILL ACCOMMODATE YOUR CHILD

Help with childcare costs - Tax-Free Childcare

Tax Free Childcare is an online payment account, topped up by the Government, which parents use solely to pay their childcare costs. For every £8 that families pay in, the Government will make a top-up payment of £2, up to a maximum of £2,000 per child per year or £4,000 for disabled children.

Rub-A-Dub has signed up to this scheme  - please click here to find us! Please do not search using ‘Derry Hill’ as the Government has us listed under Calne!

Methods of payment

We will issue an invoice usually within the first 2 weeks at the start of each term. We accept payment by cheque, electronic transfers as well as a range of childcare vouchers.

Currently we have parents paying with the following childcare voucher providers:
-  Edenred
-  Care4
-  Computershare vouchers

If your provider is not on the list, please ask as it is normally fairly straight forward to set up receipt of vouchers from your chosen provider.
