CHILDREN ATTENDING ALL YEAR ROUND - When children will be attending on a regular basis throughout the year you will be invoiced at the start of each calendar month.  Fees are calculated for only 48 weeks instead of 52 to allow for bank holidays, Nursery closure over Christmas and absence due to family holidays etc.  The total amount due is then divided into 12 equal monthly payments to be paid by monthly standing order.
CHILDREN ATTENDING TERM TIME ONLY - When children attend term time only you will receive an invoice at the start of each half term for that half term's attendance. No retainer is payable during school holidays but additional sessions can be booked during the holidays as required. There are no reductions for term-time absence due to family holidays etc.
SIBLING DISCOUNT 10% reduction on fees for oldest child/children if neither child is in receipt of funded childcare.

FREE EARLY LEARNING  This is available from the beginning of the term following a child’s third birthday.  Up to 15 hours can be claimed per week between 9.00 a.m. and 3.00 p.m., during term time only.

EXTENDED ENTITLEMENT Also available from the beginning of the term following a child's 3rd birthday for eligible families only this gives up to 15 additional funded hours to be taken between 9.00a.m. and 5.00 p.m., during term time only.

ALL HOURS INCLUDED IN FREE EARLY LEARNING AND 30 HOUR EXTENDED FREE EARLY LEARNING: We charge 20p per hour contribution for FEL and EFE hours towards the cost of snacks and consumables. This will be waived for all children who are (or have previously been) in receipt of 2 year old FEL or EYPP (Early Years Pupil Premium).

This payment towards snacks and consumables will be invoiced at the start of each half-term or will be added to your existing invoice if you already pay regular fees.  We do not want this charge to prevent any child from accessing their Free Early Learning entitlement so if you will experience difficulty with the contributions or wish to discuss the situation, please speak to our Manager, Julia.
