More on fees
A completed Registration form and a £50 non refundable deposit are required at the time of booking. This non refundable fee secures your place in the nursery. Where a child does not subsequently take up their place the Registration Fee is non refundable.
All fees are due on the 1st of each month in advance. Invoices are only generated in the case of new/overdue fees as all fees are calculated on a per calendar monthly basis. Late fee’s will be subject to a 10% late charge as per our terms and conditions.
Employees of the Cabot Learning Federation (CLF) and Kingswood Foundation Estate are entitled to a 10% discount on their child’s fees – proof of your employment will be required.
The nursery is open for 51 weeks of the year. We are closed between the Christmas – New Year period and on all statutory bank holidays. Fees are payable at the full rate for all periods of child absence, including holidays, bank holidays and sickness.
We are able to offer up to 30 hours per week of free sessions for eligible two and three and four year olds. Please note hours attended in excess of the funded hours are chargeable at £6.50 per hour.
For more information regarding your eligibility for a funded two year old place please visit the website for your local council. For eligibility regarding the 30 hours please visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
Help with fees
Childcare Choices brings together all the government childcare offers in one place for the first time. The website makes it easy to find out what’s on offer. Use the Childcare Calculator at www.gov.uk/childcare-calculator to see what offers are available to support you and your family.
This is a Government scheme available for all working families, including those who are self-employed. For every £8 you pay in, the Government will add £2 (up to £2,000 per child). This can be used to pay for sessions in addition to the Free Entitlement. More information can be found on the Childcare Service website.
We accept childcare vouchers from all the major and local companies please contact us to find out more
