Fees must still be paid if children are absent without notice for a short period of time. If your child has to be absent over a long period of time, talk to Jo Littlejohn who is our manager. For your child to keep her/his place at our setting, you must pay the fees.

We are in receipt of nursery education funding for two, three and four year olds; where funding is not received, then fees apply. Funded 2 year olds and all 3 and 4 year olds in England are entitled up to 15 hours per week free childcare. This funding starts in the term after the child’s third birthday. Terms start in January, April and September. We apply for funding on your behalf for 3 and 4 year olds. Please note: children in receipt of nursery education funding will need to pay for meals included in chosen sessions, snack are included.
