funding information

We are completely transparent with our fee structure, using an hourly rate to keep things simple.

0 – 2 years - £12.67

*2-3 years - £11.77

*3 years and above - £11.27

* Term after


The younger children require a higher staff ratio which is reflected in the cost and level of funding offered by the government.


15 hours a week of Government funding is available the term after your child is 3 for all families.

 The nursery claims the funding on your behalf, and you will not need to apply for this. 


We will need an eligibility code to claim your funding if you wish to claim up to 30 hours per week (from the term after child is 3) or 15 hours per week for children 9 months and above.


The government funding amounts from April 2024 onwards are:

*3 years and above - £6.03

We invoice parents for the cost of our quality premium and consumables, details of which are available for you on our parent contract and on our website.

3 years and above - £5.24
