If you are put on our waiting list and a place is confirmed, we will require the £100 non-refundable registration fee to be paid, along with your £150 deposit which will be credited to your last month’s invoice, however for non-starters the deposit will be non-refundable. Full details will be confirmed by the nursery manager.

We require a minimum of 3 half-days per child, or 2 full days. No minimum requirements for FEET funding children. 30 hours minimum of four sessions.

We may be able to offer before and after-school care but this is something I can discuss personally with each family, as we know wrap-around care may be desirable for some families.

We accept 15 hours and 30 hours which is stretched over the year working out at 1 and 2 free days respectively. Our 30 hours policy can be found on our website.

“It is really difficult to confirm a January 2020 start;  with the exception of Aug/Sept when we would be able to confirm well in advance due to our Pre-Schoolers leaving and creating plenty of space within the nursery, we are always pretty much full so our ability to offer your child a space would be entirely dependent upon another child either leaving or reducing their days which we normally do not become aware of until 1 month before due to 1 month’s notice being required.
