Fees & Funding 2020/2021

We are open 51 weeks of the year (1 week break at Christmas) and accept Childcare Vouchers, Tax-free payment schemes and Universal Funding and Extended Entitlement Funding (15 Hours Funding & 30 Hours Funding Entitlement) as forms of payment.

Stretched Funding – Funding is provided by the Local Authority (Council) for 38 weeks of the year.  As we operate 51 weeks of the year, charges related to the remaining 13 weeks are spread across the year and billed on a monthly basis.  The monthly cost will vary slightly depending on the start date.

We operate on a session basis, with the nursery being open between 8am-6pm Monday-Friday. There are two sessions per day; 8am-1pm and 1pm-6pm. A “Full Day” comprises two sessions and runs from 8am-6pm.

Our in-house cook creates nutritious and wholesome meals and snacks for all our children, made from fresh ingredients every day.  We have a 3-weekly menu which changes twice per year so we can take advantage of seasonal ingredients.  A sample of the type of dishes we serve can be found in our sample menu.

All charges are inclusive of breakfast, snacks, lunch and dinner.  In our morning sessions we provide breakfast, snack and lunch.  In our afternoon sessions we provide mid-afternoon snack and dinner.

Average monthly charges specific to the age of the child and applicable funding in the tables below.
