Funding and price changes

Our funding from Peterborough City Council is being phased out by the year 2021.

£33,000 – 2018
£22,000 – 2019
£11,000 – 2020

Added to this, we currently have to fundraise £15,000 per year. This means that in 2021 our total target will be £48,000.

We will continue to organise events throughout the year to help put the cash back into New Ark, but we will also need help from parents and the local community. If you know of any funding pots, sponsorships or donation funds please make a member of staff aware. You can call us on 01733 340605.

Services we provide include our Playground, Holiday club, After-school, Playgroup, Support Services to schools and our Farm. If we take one service away this will have an impact on all other areas.

We still have to pay more for materials, running costs, providing quality staff and maintaining our building which is now over 40 years old.

Our prices have been reviewed and will have to reflect the funding changes that we are facing. Our price list is available here.

All of our holiday sessions will have to be pre-booked a week in advance (not on the day) as we need to make sure enough staff are working to cover ratio of children.

There will be NO refund for places that have been pre-booked if cancelled.

If you have any queries please do contact us by telephone. We ask for your patience while we implement the new admin processes associated with this change.

We hope that you understand why we have had to make these changes. If our fees prevent your family from accessing New Ark please do talk to a manager in confidence.

We are grateful for your continued support.
