Full Day *8.00a.m. to 6p.m.

Morning Session *8.00a.m. to 1.00p.m.

Afternoon Session 1.00p.m. to 6.00p.m.


All children will be provided with a mid-session snack. Children attending the nursery all day, and those attending morning sessions, will be provided with a full lunch. The cost of all meals is included in the fees.

Nursery arrival and departure times can be between *8am - 1pm or 1pm - 6pm but the full half day session fee will be charged

*7.30am Early Start

We would respectfully ask parents who need to drop off their child earlier than 8am to let us know in advance so that appropriate staffing arrangements can be made. An extra charge of £3.00 per day will be made for children who attend between 7.30am - 8.00am.

Please remember that, on your arrival in the morning, unless you have made a prior request for an early start, you are asked to stay with your child until 8am as we must always ensure that our staff/child ratios are maintained, which is an Ofsted requirement.
