Terms & Conditions

Children’s fees are payable in advance on the first of the month.

To book a Nursery place a securing deposit is required upon submission of the application form. This amount shall be deducted from the first month’s fees. The deposit is £50 for a full time place and £25 for a part time place.

Fees include all snacks, meals, nappies and wipes required during your child’s stay in Nursery. When your child receives funding in Pre-School you will provide your own nappies/pullups and there will be an extra charge for meals (you may provide your own meals subject to conditions).

Sudocrem and Paracetamol should be brought from home labelled with your child’s name when required. We provide a gym bag for spare clothes etc. Formula or breast milk should be provided from home.

We offer the universal 570 hours of funded childcare which is available to parents of all children the term after their third birthday on a stretched basis over 52 weeks. We also offer the additional 570 hours to eligible parents, again stretched over 52 weeks. Days and sessions are subject to availability.

No refund will be given for periods when your child’s place is unfilled due to illness or holidays.

No deduction is made for Bank Holidays.

Fees may be reviewed at any time.

Until in receipt of funding, discounts will be given for siblings, applied to the oldest child.

A 50% retainer is payable for the ‘holiday’ weeks of a term-time place in Nursery.

The Nursery is open all year round excluding Bank Holidays. Standard opening hours are 8am – 6pm Monday to Friday. Morning sessions are 8am – 1pm. Afternoon sessions are 1pm – 6pm. We can provide childcare from 7am should this be required, charged at a separate rate.

We reserve the right to exclude a child from Nursery/Pre-School with one weeks notice.

The Nursery will not accept children who are suffering from sickness or diarrhoea in order to avoid cross infection. Children should be kept at home for 48 hours from the last episode of their illness.

Antibiotics will only be administered by the Nursery after the child has been taking them for at least 24 hours at home and then only with the written authorisation of parents.

We can only administer Paracetamol and/or prescribed medication.

After the MMR we ask parents to keep their child at home for 24 hours in case of any reaction to immunisation.

Should a child fall ill whilst at the nursery we will notify the parents or the alternative emergency contacts and make suitable arrangements.
