Childcare Fees

Fees:

Due to the high demand for nursery places and families booking sessions in advance we require a non-refundable Registration Fee of £20 which is payable on agreeing to take a nursery place.  We also require a minimum of one month's notice on leaving the nursery or for any permanent changes to your child's sessions.

All fees and optional extra costs are from 1st April 2017

Sessional fees are as follows:

Age Range Session Full Day
Under 2 years  £20.60 £40.70
2 – 3 years  £20.10 £39.70
Over 3 years  £19.40 £38.30

Siblings attending nursery will receive a discount as follows:

Age Range Session Full Day
Under 2 years  £19.60 £38.70
2 - 3 years  £19.10 £37.70
Over 3 years  £18.40 £36.30

(Fees subject to change)

The optional extra early morning and late evening sessions are as follows:

Extra Session Times Cost
07.30-09.00 £6.00
08.30-09.00 £2.50
17.00-17.30 £2.50
17.00-18.00 £5.00
Extra Hour £5.00

(Meals, snacks and drinks are provided within the normal sessions at no extra charge.)

Payments:

All fees are invoiced per calendar month and are payable a month in advance. Invoices will be issued 2 weeks before the 1st of the month and therefore payment must be received within this time. Fees must be paid in full, including any days absent for sickness and holidays.

Voucher Schemes:

We do accept voucher schemes from employers and we currently have Computershare, EdenredKiddiVouchers, Sodexo, Fideliti, PES, The Salary Exchange, Busy Bees Benefits and Care4 voucher scheme accounts in place. The government does also contribute towards childcare costs in the form of Child Tax Credits enquiries can be made on 0845 300 3900.

There is a proposed Tax-Free Childcare scheme by the government which may replace the existing childcare scheme in Autumn 2015.  Under Tax-Free Childcare, eligible families could receive 20% of their annual childcare costs, which would be paid for by the government.
