Contracts and costs

There are two types of contracts:

Term time only

You will be required to pay a retainer fee of £6.00 per week during holiday periods to retain your place, including the Summer Holidays.  Anytime missed due to holidays or sickness must be paid for.

Full Time

Two weeks holiday time will be given, the first week at no charge and the second at ½ price.  However, we do ask for two weeks notice where possible.  Any additional holidays must be paid for in full, including any time missed due to sickness.

Government Funding:

Once children reach 3 years old they are entitled to 15 hours free childcare. A total of 30 free hours (15 additional hours) may be claimed through the GOV.UK. This can only be claimed the term after their 3rd birthday. Any hours above the funded hours that your child attends at Nursery will be invoiced at the usual rate.
