Fees & Sessions

Nursery Manager: Nicola Pattison
Ages: Birth to 5 years
Opening times: Monday to Friday: 7.30pm – 6pm:

  • We offer a core day from 8am-6pm, which is reflected in the fees below
  • There is the availability of nursery care from from 7.30am where a separate charge applies. See below
  • Fees are due on the 1st of each month and the Fees are payable monthly, in advance, by Direct Debit or BACS. Cheques and cash payments incur an extra fee of £5
  • Fees are calculated by taking your core weekly booking, multiplying it by 51 weeks, then dividing by 12, in order to give 12 equal monthly instalments. Days absent due to sickness, holidays and Bank Holidays will be charged
  • Cost of all meals, snacks, nappies and wipes are included in the core day fee
  • You may be able to use Childcare Vouchers towards your fees, offered by your employer. Up to £243 per month can be claimed and used towards childcare fees, and this portion of your salary will not be subject to tax or National Insurance Contributions. You can use Childcare Vouchers for children up to the age of 15 (until 1st September following their 15th birthday), or 16 if they are disabled (until 1st September following their 16th birthday)
  • We participate in the Free Early Education Funding for 3 and 4 year olds, and some 2 year olds, implemented by City of York Council. We work to the Code of Practice which accompanies the Early Years Funding and we make additional charges as the Code of Practice allows for meals and snacks, organic milk, as well as our Montessori activities and resources. These are extra to the requirements of the Early Years Funding entitlement, but are essential to the ethos of our nursery.
  • Late payment fee/cancellation of cheque or direct debit: £75.00
  • We are closed between Christmas and the New Year Bank Holiday. Our annually reviewed Terms and Conditions will stipulate the specific dates for each year
