Sessions & Fees

Sessions and Fees

The nursery is open 5 days a week from 8am to 6pm, the children may attend all day or a morning session which runs from 8 am to 12pm or an afternoon session which runs from 1pm to 5pm and all children may attend a lunchtime session which runs from 12pm to 1pm.

The nursery is open until 6pm each day but an additional charge will apply for any collections after 5pm. For collection between 5:30pm and 6pm contact us.

Attendance at the nursery is a minimum of two sessions per week and we ask in the interest of continuity that all children attend at least one session a week in the holidays.

We ask all parents when dropping their children off for a morning session that they arrive between 8am and 9am and for an afternoon session they drop their children off around 1pm, for those who are staying for lunch we ask that the children are dropped off around 12pm.

We ask all parents to try and follow the nursery times as closely as possible as late arrivals distract the children from their activities.

Free settles for all new starters

All new starters to the nursery will be offered three free sessions to enable the child to settle into the nursery. More will be offered if required.
