Dates and Fees


The Nursery is open all year round and has just begun the transition to being a 51-week provision.  We are only closed on Bank Holidays and the period between Christmas and New Year.  We do not charge for the days the nursery is closed and we do offer families a means to take three weeks of holiday throughout the year for which no fees will be charged.

Sessions are available between our opening hours of 7.30 am until 6.00 pm.  We offer three morning drop off times starting from  7.30 am to 8.00 am which includes breakfast, between 8.00 am until 8.45 am for early morning drop offs and then our full day begins from 8.45 am onwards.  Pick up times start from 4.00 pm onwards on the hour with an additional pick up time of 5.30 pm.  Children with us after 4.15 pm will be served a cold tea.

As we are transitioning our setting to a 51 week provision, term times will still be honoured for existing families and children in our care and will operate on the schedule detailed below.  Holiday Club will still be offered whilst we still have children on our previous 40 week term time offering but will eventually be phased out to external families over the next five years.
