Day Nursery Fees

If you wish your child to be considered for a place please complete the basic ENROLMENT FORM which serves merely to express your interest and requirements. There is no charge for being on the waiting list and you will be contacted as soon as we are able to confirm a place for your child.

We do fully intend to fill places from the waiting list but priority may be given to parents requesting: an immediate start, as we have to ensure places are filled as soon as possible; to families with more than one child wishing to attend the Nursery, and to parents requesting full time places.

Once we are sure that we have a suitable place for your child, we will contact you to confirm the start date and we will send you a PLACE OFFER LETTER requesting a £50.00 registration fee and the deposit. The deposit will be £100.00 per day of attendance to be paid, for example if your child will be attending 2 days per week your deposit will be £200.00 + the £50.00 registration fee.

The deposit will be refunded to you when your child leaves the nursery (subject to your account being settled and that you give one months notice in writing). The registration fee of £50 is non-refundable. Both the registration fee and deposit are non-refundable should your child not start the nursery. A detailed registration form and agreement will also be sent for your completion. Receipt of these, a copy of your child’s birth certificate and the deposit will secure a place for your child.

You will then be sent a standing order mandate to complete, which will need to be set up for the day that your child joins the nursery and for the 1st of each month following. We like you to arrange several (usually 3) short pre-arranged visits usually for the week or two prior to your child starting at the nursery, where you can meet the staff, feel at home with us and complete our ADMISSION FORMS stating your child’s current routines and requirements.

If you have any further questions please call the nursery on 01189 500 116 or e-mail us at [email protected]
