Fees & contact details

We are open 7:30am to 6:00pm, 5 days a week, all year round except bank holidays.

We offer the government "free at three" Nursery Grant scheme.

This is free Nursery Education for over 3 year olds. Nursery grant begins the term after the child's 3rd birthday and they are entitled to 5 sessions, of 3 hours each, a week during term time. The times are set to 8:30am to 11:30am and 1:00pm to 4:00pm.

We place no conditions of access for you to take up the entitlement to free hours, but offer wrap around childcare. If you wish to book any additional childcare hours our charging policy is as in the Fees section below.

Some 2 year olds are entitled to free funded sessions - we can make enquiries for you or tell you how to find out if you are entitled to them.


For over 20 years we have prided ourselves on offering a truly flexible service based on hours with an hourly rate and not mandated sessions (with the exception of the free Nursery Education hours shown above). Our hourly rate differs by age to account for the adult/child ratios we adhere to. We continue to offer part/full-time, shift and flexible places - sibling discounts are given and other offers or discounts may be available.

You only pay for what you book (terms and conditions apply for cancellations), we do not charge retaining fees or require a deposit, we do not charge a holiday fee to retain your child's place and we continue to invoice in arrears and not a month in advance.

Our rates include lunch and am and pm snacks as appropriate.

Rules of payment are simple, you can pay by cash, cheque or online. We also accept company issued childcare vouchers.

If you cancel a booking with more than one week's notice you will not be charged for those hours. If, however you cancel with less than one week's notice, for any reason, you will be charged for the hours booked.

We also run a Breakfast Club from 7:30-8:00am

Terms and conditions apply and will be clearly explained before enrolment.
