The Nursery operates from Monday to Friday 08.30 to 16.00.  We will be closed during the school holidays and on statutory holidays; these days will not be charged.  In addition to this we offer extended sessions in the Summer and Christmas holidays and a Summer Playscheme. This is offered to children from both nurseries and is held at our Norman Way Nursery only. 

Sessions can be varied to suit individual needs. We do have a minimum requirement of two sessions a week as this allows children to settle into the nursery environment much faster and create new friendships with the staff and their peers.

 

Children eligible for funding

In the term after your child’s third birthday you will be entitled to 15 hours of free childcare to pay towards your childcare costs. Working parents may also be eligible for an additional 15 hours of free childcare and entitlement can be checked in the term before your child’s third birthday. 15 hours of free childcare is also available for some 2 year olds who meet the criteria. You can check your entitlement in the term before your child’s second birthday.

Entitlement can be checked on www.childcarechoices.gov.uk. If you are successful a reference number will be issued and this must be given to the nursery. You will be asked to complete a Parental Statement of Undertaking (PSOU) to confirm the hours your child attends the nursery.

Any additional hours outside of the free childcare funding will be charged at £6 per hour. Please note that the Half Day afternoon, Short Day and Full Day sessions require a packed lunch.

All sessions are listed on the right hand side of the website or if viewing on a mobile towards the bottom of the page.

Payment of Fees

Fees must be paid in advance and any additional sessions will require immediate payment. Unpaid fees will result in a suspension of sessions and termination of care may follow unless reasonable arrangements can be made and accepted by both parties. Fees are based on a reserved session basis and parents are responsible for payment of all fees including non attendance. Fees are paid by bank transfer (BACS) and can also be paid by childcare vouchers or through the Tax-free childcare scheme. For more information visit www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
