Fees and Funding

Early Years Funding

We offer Early Years Funding which allows us to provide free sessions for two, three and four year olds. 

2 Year Old Funding is available to certain families who meet the eligibility criteria, and can be applied for through your local Children's Centre or online on the Cambridgeshire County Council website. 

The Universal Entitlement (for all 3 and 4 year olds) provides either 15 hours per week, term time only, or 11.17 hours per week of free childcare for 51 weeks of the year. 

The Extended Entitlement (for eligible 3 and 4 year olds provides either 30 hours per week, term time only, or 22.35 hours per week of free childcare for 51 weeks of the year.    

Sibling Discount

We offer a 15% discount on the fees of your oldest child when a younger sibling or siblings attend the same session*.


Nursery fees are payable regardless of sickness, holidays or bank holidays.  However, our monthly fees are calculated on a 50-week year so TWO FREE WEEKS holiday discount is incorporated into your monthly fees*.

*Holiday and Sibling discounts are discontinued once a child is eligible for Early Years Funding


All fees are payable in advance on the first day of every month.  A 10% surcharge (or £10.00 where 10% of the outstanding balance is less than £10.00) will be added to any outstanding balance.  Surcharges are applied automatically on the 10th.

Extra Sessions

Extra sessions may be booked as long as there are spaces available, and will be charged at the usual sessional rates (see table below).  Fees for extra sessions will be added to your monthly invoice.


Food at nursery is provided free of charge (until a child becomes eligible for Early Years Funding - either the Universal Entitlement or the Extended Entitlement) and includes breakfast, mid-morning snack, a two course lunch, and afternoon tea.

 Voucher Payments/Tax Free Childcare

We accept all the major voucher companies for payment or part payment of your fees.  If the voucher scheme your company uses isn’t one we use already, we will enrol in it for you.  We are also registered to receive tax free childcare payments.
