Fees & Enrolment
We aim to provide the highest quality childcare at a charge that is no more than the average for the surrounding area. We feel that this gives parents excellent value for money. Fees are payable monthly in advance and the first month’s fee is due prior to your child starting nursery after the settling in period. Please call nursery 01829 751126 for current fees.
The nursery is closed for public holidays and the Christmas week. No fees are payable when the nursery is closed. Exact dates will be notified each year for the following twelve months.
Reducing the cost of childcare
There are many options to reduce the cost of childcare. Please visit, www.childcarechoices.co.uk and follow the links that are appropriate to you.
School House Nursery participates in the 30 hours free childcare scheme and this can be delivered flexibily. We also accept all childcare vouchers from employers. These are offered by employers which can give a saving on your tax and National Insurance contributions.
Universal Educational Funding
All three & four year old children are entitled to funded sessions through the Early Years Foundation Stage Grant. Children are eligible for the term after their 3rd birthday. The funding is for 38 weeks of the year (term time) and you can claim up 15 hours free over a minimum of 3 days. The grant is deducted from your invoice. Some children who are two years old may also be entitled to educational funding.
Please speak to the nursery manager for more details on any of the above who will be happy to help.
