Our fees are fully inclusive of all meals and standard nappies.  Full day cover is based upon a maximum nine-hour day. Charges will apply for additional hours and late collections.  We accept Salary Sacrifice Vouchers and the Tax-Free Childcare Scheme.  Children eligible for Free Childcare Entitlement can claim up to 6 hours for each week day they attend, up to the maximum 30 hour per week. It is subject eligibility, and arrangement with the nursery at the start of each term. A 10% discount is available for full-time twins or siblings.

Please note that our fees are calculated annually and then divided into twelve equal payments. Settling-in hours are chargeable following your initial two complimentary one-hour sessions. Fees are due promptly, in advance, on the first day of each month and are subject to annual review, usually on the 1st April each year.

Minimum Booking Patterns

Our minimum booking pattern is normally two days per week. This allows us to care for your child in a settled and stable environment, and deliver the Early Years Foundation Stage to the highest standards. Unfortunately we are unable to accommodate requests for 1/2 day childcare.
