The Fees for over twos are calculated from a base rate of £5.10 per hour.
Flexible Free Entitlement funded by the Government is available for three to five year olds once they have passed the qualifying date. The Free Entitlement is available up to a maximum of 15 hours per week spread over a minimum of two days OR a maximum of 10 hours over 1 day. A maximum number of Free Entitlement hours are allocated each term and can be stretched to cover holiday periods as well as term time weeks. Sessions are only available within the framework set out in the application form.
Places for over twos are allocated either as Full Time i.e. 51 weeks (approx) of the year with a three week no fee holiday, or Term Time, when a one third retainer is payable during the statutory school holidays.
We are closed for a variable period at Christmas in addition to the statutory Public Holidays: Good Friday, Easter Monday, Early and Late Spring Bank Holidays and August Bank Holiday.
We offer a 10% sibling discount, which is applicable to the elder child. We also offer a 10% discount for Full Time, Full Week places. These discounts will cease once the child qualifies for Free Entitlement. Please note that Bank Holidays are not chargeable but fees are due if the Nursery is forced to close through inclement weather or other circumstances beyond our control.
We are registered with a number of voucher providers; please ask at the office for details.
Snacks for the over twos are included in the Fees, but Breakfast and High Tea can be provided at an additional cost of £1.50 and £2.50 respectively per meal.
Meals and snacks are often taken around the camp fire in the field, cooked on our Norwegian tripod cooker. Particular favourites are toasted tea cakes and sizzling sausages!
