We charge our fees on the 1st of every month as 1/12 of the annual charge for all year round provision. This keeps our finances and your budgets simple.  An increase to the fees should be expected each September and is likely to be in line with inflation.  Our terms and conditions are given as part of the registration process and are available on the registration form and parent handbook. 

A £50 administration charge is required alongside your registration form to secure a space at NOA's Ark.
