Fees are payable on the 1st of each month either by standing order, debit card, childcare vouchers or from the government tax free childcare scheme. Fees are paid in advance on a monthly basis. Parents/carers are charged for 48 weeks a year divided over 12 monthly payments. The nursery is open 52 weeks per year, there are 4 weeks non-chargeable that covers all bank holidays, holidays and sickness children may take. No days are refundable such as bank holidays, snow days etc

Nursery Education Grants
All children aged three and four are entitled to free part-time funded childcare sessions varying from 15 – 30 hours. Early Years funded sessions through Nursery Education Grants are automatically applied for by the nursery on your behalf which will mean a reduction in your monthly invoice. This is available in school term time only following your child’s 3rd birthday. Nursery Education Grants are also available for 2-year olds, subject to criteria. Please ask the nursery management team for details.
You can get up to £500 every 3 months (£2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. If you get Tax-Free Childcare, the government will pay £2 for every £8 you pay your childcare provider via an online account. You can use it to pay for approved childcare. You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 30 hours free childcare if you’re eligible for both.
