Terms and Conditions

To give you peace of mind our sessions are booked for the academic year. We do not offer temporary changes. Permanent changes to booking are available however, these are dependent on if the nursery has alternative sessions available and the parent /carer giving one term’s notice.

Children are expected to take up their full entitlement of funded hours.

Sessions purchased in addition to free funded sessions are not chargeable on bank holidays or at times of emergency closure. If your child is absent you will still be charged for any session booked.

Children can attend any session subject to availability and can block book these to suit parent/carer need. For example, if a child is entitled to 15 hours of free funded education they may choose to attend 5 mornings or afternoons or any combination of sessions that make up 15 hours of free funded education. Extra sessions can be
purchased as detailed above. The same is true for 30 hour places.

Morning Wraparound : 08:00am to 08:45am
Morning Session : 08:45am to 11:45am
Lunchtime Session : 11:45am to 12:30pm
Afternoon Session : 12:30pm to 3:30pm

Nursery charges will be reviewed in July every year. Any increase will take effect in September .
