We are a parent-led nursery, which enables us to provide high quality childcare whilst keeping fees low. We want our nursery to be affordable and accessible to as many local families as possible.
We offer childcare five days a week, fifty weeks a year, closing for the Bank Holidays and two weeks over Christmas. We ask that families use a minimum of two sessions per week.
We offer both full and short days and adapt the fees accordingly (see below). Our full day sessions run from 8am to 6pm and short day sessions run from 9am to 3pm. Your child could do a combination of short and long days – whatever works best for your family and your budget.
|Child’s age||Short day (per day)||Long day (per day)|
|Three and four||£41.08||£66.00|
Sibling and volunteer discounts
We offer a 10% sibling discount off the fees of the eldest child to families with more than one child attending the nursery.
Parents have the option to make a regular commitment to the nursery as a classroom helper (one day a week, 9am to 3pm), alongside trained members of staff . That family will then receive free childcare on the day that they volunteer and a 15% discount on their overall fees.
Subsidies and vouchers
If your child is aged 2, 3 or 4, you may be eligible for free childcare, paid for by the government. We are happy to offer free childcare to eligible families, as well as Tax Free Childcare and childcare vouchers.
The government funding for the 15 and 30 hours schemes is for term time only, meaning the funding would only cover 38 weeks of the year. As our nursery is open 50 weeks a year we divide the total funding evenly across the year to prevent parents being hit with higher nursery fees during school holidays. The table below shows how many funded hours would be deducted from your weekly invoice in this way.
|Child’s age||Free hours scheme||Annual entitlement||Free hours used each week|
|Two||15 hours weekly||570 hours||10.96 hours|
|Three and four||15 hours weekly||570 hours||10.96 hours|
|Three and four||30 hours weekly||1140 hours||21.92 hours|
