We like to keep things as simple as possible. This helps provide predictability and stability for families by avoiding confusing multi-tier fee structures and hidden costs. Charges are always for the month in advance and you will be invoiced monthly through our convenient ‘paperless’ system through the Famly app.

The fees include all meals, snacks, and drinks throughout the day. They also include nappies, wipes, and creams.

Our core hours are 8am – 6.30pm and our nursery is open 51 weeks of the year. We close for the Bank Holidays, the few days between Christmas and New Year and inset days.
