Understanding the cost of childcare and what type of funding you are eligible for shouldn’t be confusing, so we have put together some information to help you know the what you will need to pay for, and what is free of charge.To make things easy, we operate the same fees and session times across all of our nurseries where our hourly rates depend on the age of your child:
Babies (0-2 years) = £5.75
Toddlers (2-3 years) = £5.50
Preschool 3-4 years = £5.35
These prices are effective from September 2020.
Drinks and snacks are included in these prices, but please note these prices do not include formula or lunches. For an additional £2.50 we can provide a hot lunch for your child, alternatively you can pack your own lunch. Nappies and wipes are included in the cost for the under 2’s. Finally, here is the good news, there are many things we don’t charge for! There is no registration fee, no administration fee, no membership fee, no consumables charge and no charge for The Forest Schools Sessions and the protective clothing we provide.
