The fees shown here are correct as of 1st September 2019. The nursery only offers full day care and we recommend a minimum of three days per week attendance.
There is a one-off non-refundable registration fee of £80 to place your child on the waiting list which is payable on submission of the application form for your child. Our fees include the following;
• Breakfast for Full Time places (before 9.00am)
• Fruit and Snacks
We offer subsidised places across all age groups subject to availability, terms and conditions. Please enquire for more information.
We offer a sibling discount of 15% for your eldest child attending Little Friends, provided that your children attend the nursery at the same time.
Settling in Period
Before your child starts at the nursery, there will be a settling in period, where yu will be required to stay with your child.
During the course of every academic year, there are number of Inset Days which are scattered evenly in the year. The Inset Days are aimed at staff training to arrange provisions to meet all the children’s needs in the new term. We have to have these training days in line with Ofsted regulations and these days are part of the term time and nursery fees are payable.
Fees are paid monthly in advance by standing order. Statements and balancing invoices for extra days and services will be issued at the end of the month.
The deposit is the equivalent of one month’s fees and will be returned to you in line with the nursery’s terms and conditions. It is to be paid within seven days of acceptance of the space at the nursery along with the settling in fee. This can be paid via cash or cheque directly to the nursery reception or transferred to the nursery’s bank account.
We accept most forms of Childcare vouchers, if we are not currently registered with your provider we will do so. Please enquire for further information on this.
Please note: Childcare Tax and Working Tax Credits are available from the Inland Revenue to help with up to 80% of your childcare costs. For further information please follow this link: https://www.gov.uk/child-tax-credit/overview
