Fees and Information
As a full day care setting providing care for children from 3 months to 5 years old we are open from 7.30am to 6.30pm Monday to Friday for 51 weeks of the year. The nursery is closed on public holidays, between Christmas and New Year and for one staff training day a year.
Each day we operate over two sessions. The morning session runs from 7.30am to 1.00pm while the afternoon session is from 1.00pm to 6.30pm. To help provide a steady routine and so that your child doesn’t feel like they are starting in the nursery anew each week, we operate a minimum two sessions per week attendance requirement. The attendance sessions can be a mixture of morning, afternoon or full days sessions that best support your family’s needs. Each session will include:
- Planned learning activities
- Key Person group time
- Free play
- Outdoor playtime
- Nap time, in line with their normal routine (age dependant).
What’s included in the fees?
We will provide everything your child needs during the day, including:
- Nappies, wipes and nappy cream
- Sun cream and Calpol, as needed
- Milk – cow, formula, soya or goat as required
- Nutritionally balanced meals and snacks throughout the day, these include:
- Breakfast (morning session)
- Mid-morning snack (morning session)
- Hot lunch (morning session)
- Mid afternoon snack (afternoon session)
- Evening dinner (afternoon session)
All food is freshly prepared daily and follows the government guidelines with regards to health and nutrition. We can also provide for all dietary requirements and allergies.
All that we ask is that you bring a spare pair of clothes each day – but we’ll even provide a nursery bag to carry the clothes.
