Fees

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.

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 score 10/10 on daynurseries.co.uk 🔹Serendipitys Day Nursery & Pre-School has provided the most fun and caring environment for my little girl. She loves her nursery days and she is always asking for the staff when we come home. I always have peace of mind knowing she is well cared for.🔹Great nursery that my son has been going to since 9 months old. As a small 'home from home' nursery it is lovely that all the staff know my son and myself even though he hasn't been into all the rooms.Even though there isn't an app here like some other settings, we got all the info for the day from the baby room in a notebook and handover at the end of the day is excellent for the older rooms.🔹Never had any issues here. My daughter loves going to nursery and all the staff seem so lovely and friendly too. My daughter really has warmed to some of the staff but particularly to one member of staff. She eats all the food despite not eating some at home and as far as I'm aware, they are listening to us and our needs with regard to potty training. Thank you🔹This is my second child to attend this nursery. My daughter loves every minute of being there! The staff are amazing and I know that she is well looked after, the nursery has wonderful resources for the children and a variety of meals. I would recommend this nursery 100%.🔹A really lovely nursery with a home-from-home feel. Staff always coming up with new ideas to help the children develop and learn. Really good outdoor space with lots of activities. A diverse menu to allow the children to try new foods.My son loves coming here.You’ve seen what our existing parents say about us. Why not come and see for yourself. Some things our parents didn’t say;- ⭐Perfect for first time parents.⭐Private, walled back garden for outdoor play.⭐Private car park to ensure ease for parents at drop off and collection times.⭐Home from Home environment.Message us or contact nursery on 01636 679050Or email balderton@serendipitys.co.uk ...
