Flexible care

The nursery offers a wide choice of childcare options to fit around the needs of busy parents. Parents can choose from a combination of full day, School day, morning or afternoon and you can book for all year or term time only.

Funding becomes available to all children ages 3 and 4 in the term after their child’s 3rd birthday and 2 year funding may be available to eligible children the term after their 2nd birthday. Funding can either be used term time or spread across the full year.

A 5% discount is offered for children who take up full time places. In addition, the nursery offers a reduced fee if your second child and subsequent children are also enrolled with us. If both children attend 2 days (4 sessions) with us you will receive a 5% discount. If both children attend more than 4 sessions a week a 10% discount is applied. The sibling discount is applied to the oldest child’s fees and will be clearly shown on all invoices. (Discounts are only applied to permanent sessions booked, and only applies to care hours.)

All fees are due to be paid a month in advance. Once a child has been booked into the nursery fees will be due on the 1st of every month. This payment needs to be made by balance transfer or childcare vouchers. Depending on how each parent chooses to make their payments they need to make sure the balance is cleared by the 1st of each month. A one-off £60 registration fee is charged to confirm your child’s place and cover administration costs. (For funded only places a £20 holding is required to secure the place, this is returned upon up take of a nursery place.)
