When registering your child for a place, we do require that your child attends two separate sessions over the week as this aids the settling in process. If you are registering your child within our toddler rooms we do require your child to attend a minimum of 20 hours.


Termination of Sessions

If you wish to withdraw your child or cancel a session permanently, we require one month's written notice.  If you require extra sessions please contact the office.  We are unable to swap sessions.


Fees and Payment

An invoice is sent out either by email or post at the beginning of each month. Payments are due within 10 days of receipt of invoice. A 5% charge will incur if late payment is received. Please note fees are due for review every September.

We accept all childcare vouchers now being issued by employers. Payment can be made by cash, debit and credit cards and bank transfer.


Sibling Discount

A sibling discount is available for the oldest child if both children attend nursery for more than 20 hours a week, attend all year round and pay full fees. This however is not available if your child is in receipt of government funding.
