Children accessing a full 5 day nursery week benefit from a discounted rate and are charged on the basis of a 50 week year.
You will be pleased to hear that we are eligible to receive government funding so children can have 15 or 30 hours nursery education and care per week starting the term after their third birthday.
Funded hours are available with limited space and are subject to availability over 38 or 48 weeks a year. All consumables are payable.
The funding is spread across the year and you can use a maximum of 12/ 22 hours a week to ensure you don’t over claim the hours
For instance –
7.30am to 6.30pm – we put 6 hours of funding towards this session and the additional 5 hours are payable by yourself.

We accept all major childcare vouchers.
Where possible, we offer emergency childcare for parents of the local community if, for example, your regular au pair or childminder is sick on the day. The emergency care rate is £70 per day.
NB. The Nursery is also closed 3 days a year to allow for staff training and these dates are notified to parents in advance. There is no reduction in the payment of fees for when the nursery is closed on these training days.
