Our Nursery Fees

We have tried to keep our fee structure as simple and transparent as possible whilst offering the booking flexibility that we know many working parents require. If your preferred session times are not shown below, please speak to us and we will do our very best to accommodate your childcare requirements.


We offer an automatic 10% discount for any regular booking of 40 hours + per week/per child.

  •  A start and end time must be specified at the time of booking for all flexible day bookings. These must start and end on the hour or 15, 30 or 45 minutes past the hour. Examples of permitted bookings include 10.15am to 4.45pm (6 1⁄2 hours), 8am to 6.15pm (10 1⁄4 hours) and 7.30am to 6.30pm (11 hours)

  • Sessions starting or ending outside our core opening times of 8am-6pm are offered subject to there being sufficient demand to justify opening the nursery at these times

  • We charge for 52 weeks of the year, so your monthly fee will be your weekly fee multiplied by 52 weeks then divided by 12 months

  • One-off, occasional and irregular bookings are welcome, but are subject to availability and booking conditions

Free Early Education Entitlement

The first 30 hours per week of any booking are charged at £3.50 per hour during school term time (38 weeks). Any hours over and above this are charged at a variable rate that is automatically calculated so that the total cost of the booking in any month is as per the fee schedule above.


If your child is entitled to claim their Free Early Education Entitlement with us, up to 15 hours per week (or, depending on your family circumstances, up to 30 hours per week) over 38 weeks that would normally have been charged at £3.50 per hour will be provided free of charge, reducing the average monthly cost of your booking by up to £166.25.


If your child attends nursery for no more than 15 hours per week (or 30 hours per week if applicable) and for only 38 weeks per year, his or her nursery care and education will be provided completely free of charge. The only cost to you will be £5.00 for any session that includes lunchtime (12pm to 1pm) or £2.00 for any session that does not include lunchtime. This is to cover the cost of all meals, snacks and drinks. You may instead provide your own meals, snacks and drinks, but these must be pre-approved by the Nursery Manager or Deputy Manager on a daily basis to ensure that they comply with our Food and Drink Policy and all relevant risk assessments, including those relating to allergies and choking.

Please note: We give priority to standard all year round bookings, so availability of free 38 week bookings is very restricted and may vary from term to term.






Very professional staff, warm and friendly. Very clean nursery with plenty of stimulating toys.
