Our Eastleigh day nursery fees are competitively priced and are all-inclusive to make life easier for you.
Mulberry Corner Day Nursery fees are inclusive of:
|We offer a discount of 3% for bookings 4 days and over|
|Morning Session||8am-1pm||£42.00 (lunch included)|
|Afternoon Session||1pm-6pm||£40.70 (tea included)|
Subject to availability, families can book ad-hoc hours in addition to their regular booking pattern.
There is a minimum booking pattern of two days per week for children who are not eligible for funding (a full day counts as one session).
If your child is eligible for 15 or 30 hours funding, a minimum booking pattern applies. Please speak to Zoe for details.
All invoices are annualised giving an equal monthly amount depending on the sessions attended. This is done by multiplying the weekly sessions by 51 (we do not charge for our Christmas closure week) then dividing by 12 months.
We do have a limited number of term time only nursery places available. Please contact Zoe for more information.
15 Hours Funding
You can access the 15 hours universal funding entitlement in the term after your child’s third birthday. Once eligible, we stretch the 15 hours funding over 51 weeks of the year.
For more information on the 15 hours entitlement, including how to apply and what to supply to Mulberry Corner, please visit Childcare Choices. Our Nursery Management team are happy to help you with any queries you have also.
30 Hours Funding
If you are eligible for the extended 30 hours funding entitlement, this will apply in the term after your child’s third birthday. Once eligible, we stretch the 30 hours childcare funding over 51 weeks of the year.
For more information on the 30 hours funding, including how to apply and what information to supply to Mulberry Corner, please visit Childcare Choices. Our Nursery Management team are happy to help you with any queries you have also.
15 and 30 Hours Funding Consumables Charge
We will deduct your funded hours from your monthly invoice.
We apply a consumables charge of £1.92 to all funded hours. This is to cover the cost of the "all-inclusive" items listed above.
Your Nursery Manager, Zoe, will be able to provide the net amount you will need to pay after your entitlement to funded hours has been deducted.
Most parents will also be entitled to tax free childcare (see below), in addition to their entitlement to funded hours.
All fees and consumable charges are reviewed annually in September.
What do we mean by stretched funding?
Both 15 and 30 hours funding is based on 38 weeks of the year, giving eligible families 570 and 1140 hours respectively. To keep your payments to an equal monthly fee throughout the year, we ‘stretch’ this funding over the 51 weeks per year that we are open. This means you receive 11 hours 10 minutes or 22 hours 20 minutes every week of the year and don’t receive a higher bill outside of term time. If you have any questions, please contact the manager who will always be happy to help you with any queries.
We accept tax free childcare payments!
Eligible families can receive up to £2,000 per year for each child from the government to pay towards childcare fees. For every 80p you pay in, the government will pay in 20p. Any fees due in excess of this maximum amount must be covered in full by the family.
Please note, if you choose to pay tax free childcare, you cannot also pay with work based childcare vouchers.
