Nursery fees are charged by the hour @ £5.50per hour.
All children must attend the nursery for a minimum of ten hours per week this enables the children to settle into the nursery routine quicker.
Fees are to be paid monthly or termly in advance and the nursery management has the right to terminate accounts that are overdue. If your child is absent due to illness fees must still be paid in full.
A £50.00 registration fee is required then reserving your child’s place at the nursery this is non-refundable.
If your child is accessing free early education hours only the registration fee is non-applicable.
For the morning session we require that children start at 07:30 a.m. at the earliest and no later than 09.00 a.m. The afternoon session starts from 13:00 at the latest.
Uniform is not compulsory but we advise that the children wear it as it looks smart and saves damage to other clothing.
