Fee Structure for Free Early Education Provision (30 Hours)

Nursery Fees

Fee Structure for Free Early Education Provision (in conjunction with our Admissions Policy)

Free Early Education Provision (Nursery Grant hours) can be accessed by a child the term after his/her 3rd birthday. Children who qualify for 30 hours per week in total over 38 weeks per academic year, can access this free provision as our normal 2 full day sessions per week all year round. For those parents requiring additional hours to the 30 free hours, the additional costs are shown below.

To calculate the fees, first find the number of sessions per week you wish your child to attend, then go along the table to find the number of hours you are claiming per week. Weekly fees are calculated over 50 weeks per year (not 52 as the nursery is closed over Christmas and 3 training days per year) as allowed by the Early Years Handbook.

Places for children whom request and want to start attending 30 hours only will have their places confirmed two weeks before the start of the new term.
