We are open Monday to Friday for 52 weeks a year, with the exception of all Bank Holidays and the afternoon of Christmas Eve and New Years Eve (if they fall on a weekday)

Fees are due on the 1st of the month in advance. It is the childcare place and not a child’s attendance that is charged, fees are calculated over 52 weeks.

A late payment fee of 15% of the outstanding balance will be applied to fees not received by the 7th of the month. Non payment or repeated late payment may affect your child’s place.

We do not make any deductions for non attendance due to Bank Holidays, sickness or holidays. However, we do offer an alternative session for bank Holiday and Festive half day closures 2 weeks either side of the date (subject to availability).

Two Year Funding
We are registered with the local authority to access 2-Year-old Funding and provide Free childcare for eligible children. Two year funded Free childcare is provided as 15 hours per week term-time Free of Charge (15 hours x 38 weeks = 570 hours per year) or as 11 hours per week all year round (11 hours x 52 weeks = 570 hours per year) Free of charge.

Three and Four Year Funding
Nursery Education Funding for children over the age of 3 is provided by Nottinghamshire County Council. Universal entitlement of 15 hours (570 hours per year) is stretched and offered as 11 hours per week over 52 weeks. The extended entitlement of 30 hours (1140 hours per year) is stretched and offered as 22 hours per week over 52 weeks. We offer a limited number of term-time only places. If your child attends term-time only, they will receive up to 15 or 30 hours per week (term-time), depending on what they attend.

Due to the flexibility of our delivery models, we can offer the full extended entitlement in as little as 2.5 days. There is a charge for consumables, such as resources for activities, meals and external services. An Additional charge of £7.50 per hour will apply to any sessions which exceed the number of Free hours available.

We offer several options for TOTALLY FREE funded sessions. Eligible children can attend Term time or All year round using their FREE hours for ½ days (8-1 or 1-6), school day (9-3) or full day (8-6) sessions. We also offer shorter sessions in 3-hour blocks from 9-12 or 1-4. Funded sessions are subject to availability and may change on a term-by-term basis.
