What do our fees cover?


We charge £50 for registration which is non-refundable and covers administrative charges only. We also ask for a deposit, which varies according to the number of days of attendance.

The nursery is open throughout the year, apart from Bank Holidays, and our fee structure has been written with this in mind. Our costs are fully inclusive of hours, meals and snacks.

There are no additional charges but we do ask you to provide your children’s nappies and sun cream as appropriate.

FREE entitlement for 3 and 4 year olds


The Government funds Local Authorities to ensure a free part-time early education place is available for every 3 and 4 year old.

From 1st September 2010 The Code of Practice states that 3 and 4 year old children are entitled to free early years education, comprising 15 hours per week for 38 weeks of the year, during the term dates set by the Local Authority.

Parents are not required to contribute towards this minimum entitlement session but fees may apply for any services or childcare that is additional to the free place.

The Code of Practice states that parents can access as little or as much of the minimum entitlement at more than one provider, but at a maximum of two providers.

The nationally prescribed dates for determining eligibility for free entitlement are as follows:

A child born on or between: Will become eligible for a free place from:
1 April and 31 August 1 September following their third birthday
1 September and 31 December 1 January following their third birthday
1 January and 31 March 1 April following their third birthday
