We like to keep things as simple as possible. This helps provide predictability and stability for families by avoiding confusing multi-tier fee structures and hidden costs. Charges are always for the month in advance and you will be invoiced monthly through our convenient ‘paperless’ system through the Famly app.

The fees include all meals, snacks, and drinks throughout the day, including milk formula. They also include nappies, wipes, and creams. There are no additional charges within the fees below. That includes various activities that take place at the nursery such as extra-curricular sessions, trips, and experience days. Its all-inclusive!

Operating Hours

Our core hours are 7.30am – 6.30pm, Monday to Friday.

Our nursery is open 51 weeks of the year.  We close for the Bank Holidays and the few days between Christmas and New Year. We also close for two inset days each year.

Standard Sessions Times: Minimum 3 Sessions Over 2 Days Per Week

We want your children to enjoy coming to our nursery therefore we operate with a minimum attendance/session policy to help children settle-in to nursery and a regular routine. In our experience children attending nursery for less than 3 sessions over 2 days per week really struggle to settle quickly which is both upsetting for you as a parent and for your child. So that both you and your child are 100% comfortable with our nursery we offer extended settling-in sessions so that when you finally do choose to leave your child with us, you will be confident that they’re happy. And we know if they’re happy, you’ll be happy!
