Nursery Fees and Funding
Our fees are £4.50 per hour, per child.
Any off-site trips, visitors and special events will be charged separately, but letters will be sent out with plenty of notice. We want to make the start of Nursery as easy as possible for parents. Before your child starts, you will receive funding information and a PAF form (for funding), a personal information form with a number of parental/ carer permission forms to be signed. If any support is needed with the forms please ask any of the staff who will be more than happy to help.
*NEW THIS YEAR - MATCH FUNDING*
If your child is eligible for a 15 hour voucher, we will match-fund an additional 15 hours so you receive 30 for no additional cost!
Funding is set by the government. On application for a Nursery place and termly thereafter, you will receive a funding form. These must be filled in and returned to the school office in order to secure your funded place.
15 hours funding for all 3-4 year olds - All 3-4 year olds are eligible to 15 hours a week, 38 weeks a year. For more information click here.

Invoices go out at the end of each month and MUST be paid within 28 days. There is an automatic £10 charge if payment isn’t paid within this time. For invoice enquiries please contact the school office.
Sickness and Holidays
Full fees are applicable for absences (including sickness and holidays). If your child will not be attending their session please ring 01394 450281 and choose option 3. If we haven’t received a call 1 hour after the start of your child’s session we will give you a quick courtesy call. This is in line with our ‘Children missing in education policy’ and part of our safeguarding policy.
