How We Work

First, you need to visit us! Choosing a nursery is one of the most difficult decisions you will make. Come and meet our lovely team and look around our beautiful nurseries. 

When you have made the decision that we are right for you complete our registration form to reserve a space or add your child to our wait list. 

Flexible Options

Early Years Funding 15 or 30 hours

We welcome the use of Early Years Free Entitlement. Your personal entitlement will depend on your own circumstances and you should refer to www.childcarechoices.gov.uk to check your eligibility. You should do this as early as possible to ensure that you receive the hours your are entitled. You can apply before your child turns 3. To apply for a funded space at The Nest, complete our registration form and our funding application form. You can apply for a space before your eligibility is confirmed but funding can only be applied when you have confirmed eligibility. 

Practical considerations

Our terms are fairly standard and comparable to other local nurseries. However here is an outline of the key terms that are useful for you to consider before reserving your space. 

  • To secure a place you will pay a non refundable £30 registration fee and a £120 deposit. The deposit is retained by us until you leave the nursery with the required notice and all invoices have been settled. 

  •  We provide 4 settling in sessions for your child in the 2 weeks before they are due to start their regular sessions. You also have the option to extend your settling in period before their start date

  • There is flexibility with your chosen sessions up until 8 weeks before your child starts. After this any reduction to your child's attendance will require 8 weeks written notice. 

  • Our minimum attendance is 2 sessions per week. This can be two half days or two full days. 

  • You can add additional sessions at the current rate and subject to availability

  • Child sickness and child holiday are charged at your normal rate unless you have chosen one of our flexible options. 

  • The nursery is open 51 weeks per year. We close for 5 working days at Christmas. No fee is charged for those days. 

  • Normal fees are charged for all bank holidays.

  • Term Term only contract holidays are determined by our term dates, which may differ slightly from the local schools. Please check our term dates here 

  • The nursery reserves the right to close for three staff training days per year. 

  • Nursery fees are reviewed each September

  • Payments are due in advance. Invoices are issued on the 15th of the month and are due by 27th of the month

  • Non payment of fees will incur late fees and admission may be refused
