Fees & Funding



Overview of fees 

Our fees have been structured so that there are no hidden costs – meals, trips and peripatetic lessons, such as, music, dance and drama, are all included within the fees published.

Fees and session times

Places are all year round for 51 weeks per year (closed bank holidays & Christmas week).
Fees are due for all other absences.
Children must attend for a minimum of 4 sessions (half a day = 1 session) or 5 sessions if claiming the extended Early Years Funding entitlement.
Our fees include all meals, snacks and drinks.

All bottle feeds, formula, nappies and wipes must be supplied by parents.

Early Education Funding 

Children aged two (those that are eligible) and all those aged three to under five are entitled to early education funded sessions.

Early Education Funding (EEF) is available from the term beginning after a child’s 3rd birthday. Some two-year-olds may also be eligible for EEF; please speak to a member of staff for details.

These sessions are subject to eligibility and availability and for 51 weeks per year. We ‘stretch’ the 15 hours per week ‘term time only’ funding to cover the full year at 11 hours per week.

Childcare vouchers

We are registered with many companies that provide childcare vouchers as an alternative way to pay part of your fees. Please ask at the nursery for more information
