How to pay your nursery fees

As we have introduced alternative ways for parents to pay fees, we have seen a decline in the use of the payment Hotline, such that we will cease this method of collection from 31st October 2016.  We will continue to accept all other methods of payment including; Childcare Vouchers, Direct debit, Bank Transfer, Cheque, Online Payments and in person, by Card, within the nursery.

The alternative methods of collecting payments available will ensure that we continue to provide secure and flexible options to parents, 24 hours a day, if required.

If you have any queries regarding your invoice or any questions relating to your fees, please speak to your Nursery Manager who will be happy to clarify.  When calling the nursery select option 1 to go straight through to your Manager.

Outside Book Corner and Sand/Mud Area

We recently had two new separate areas created in the outside playground. We have an area that is now dedicated to the experience of messy play and digging, and in contrast an impressive covered book corner where the children can sit quietly whilst keeping dry in the rain or cool in the sun.
