All payable in advance. Fees must still be paid if children are absent.


We are in receipt of nursery education funding for 3 and 4 year olds and some 2 year olds, where funding is not received then fees apply. Funding starts the term after a child is 3, they are entitled to 15 hours free education a week (570 hours in a birthday year), we will do everything to accommodate your funding hours, however we are very popular and this can only be provided if we have space. Please click here to for more information on early years education funding.

For any hours over your funded 15 or 30 hours per week or more than the 570 hours per year you will be charged at the hourly rate. We offer the 30 hours funding for working parents, space permitting. Find out more.

Tax-Free Childcare

You can get up to £500 every 3 months (up to £2,000 a year) for each of your children to help with the costs of childcare. This goes up to £1,000 every 3 months if a child is disabled (up to £4,000 a year).

If you’ve already registered, you can sign in to your childcare account.

If you get Tax-Free Childcare, you’ll set up an online childcare account for your child. For every £8 you pay into this account, the government will pay in £2 to use to pay your provider. You can get Tax-Free Childcare at the same time as 30 hours free childcare if you’re eligible for both. Find out more.

4 weeks notice is required if you withdraw your child from pre-school.
