Nursery fees

All inclusive day rate for children aged 18 months to 3 years: £58.70.

This includes all meals, snacks, nappies and wipes.

Preschool fees

All inclusive day rate for children aged 3-4 years: £58.50.

This includes all meals. The hourly government funding is subtracted from this, dependant on what the child is entitled to.

Our rates are reviewed annually in September.

The government has introduced funding for certain 2 year olds, which could help to reduce your nursery fees. You may be entitled to receive this funding if you claim certain welfare benefits or if your child is (a) adopted; (b) is a child in care or (c) has special needs and has an education health and care plan in place. If you wish to find out more about 2 year funding, please feel free to speak to us. We can provide you with the necessary paperwork for you to make a claim.

All preschool children are entitled to up to 15 hours of free funding per week as part of the Early Years Free Entitlement scheme (EYFE) from the term after their third birthday.  We accept this funding (known as the universal funding) with no strings attached – you do not have to sign up for a minimum number of sessions and you can use this funding in term time only or stretched throughout the entire year.

We also accept the new additional preschool funding (sometimes called the 30 hours funding).  This is available to all eligible families (visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for further details of whether you are eligible).  Our additional funding is available throughout the entire the year (not just in term time) and in conjunction with the universal funding can provide you with 1,140 hours of free childcare per year.

Unlike many nurseries, we do not charge a consumables fee as a condition of accepting either the universal or the additional funding.

The nursery and preschool are open from 8a.m. to 6p.m. The core of our sessions are 9a.m. to 1p.m. and 1p.m. to 5p.m, but we are able to offer variations to these hours to cater for work commitments.

The nursery accepts childcare vouchers as part or full settlement of childcare fees. Please speak to a member of staff for further details.
