Method of payments accepted at nursery are

Direct debit/bank transfer/childcare vouchers/university/college grants/tax free childcare  

Funding options - please see out tailor made packages to suit your needs.


A £50 deposit is required to secure a place at nursery. This will be deducted from your first invoice. Should your child not start at nursery this deposit is non-refundable.

Payments can be made weekly/monthly according to your agreed payment plan at the point of registration. 

Fees in advance are not required, however invoices must be paid on/by the last working day of each month, to avoid a late payment charge.

Failure to meet agreed payment plans with no prior notice may result in suspending the nursery place.  

Funded only children will not need to pay a deposit. Top up fees for funded only children do not apply. For additional hours on top of funding will be charged accordingly and parents/carers are fully liable for these costs.

If you wish to withdraw your child from nursery you must provide the management team with 4 weeks written notice to terminate your contract.

If you wish to reduce your child's sessions you must give 2 weeks written notice. Management will notify you of the available part time sessions during this period.

For any children collected after their session time a late payment fee may apply. The nursery trading hours are between 7.30am - 6pm, all children need to be collected no later than 6pm.
