Our Nursery Fees

Day nursery fees can often be very confusing; there are so many options for sessions and days.  We have listed the basics here but as an independent family nursery we understand that sometimes flexibility is required.  We are always happy to discuss your requirements and see if we can accommodate your needs.

We offer a sibling discount and most extra curricular activities* (like Pyjama Drama, Tiny Talk and French are included in your fees).  * Swimming lessons are extra and some trips may incur an extra charge.

We include all meals and cater for special diets but nappies need to be provided.

A limited number of term-time only places are offered.  Please ask for details and availability.

We don’t insist but do recommend a minimum of two sessions per week to enable good attachments for the children.  We also ask for four weeks notice to reduce/cancel your child’s place.

Nursery Fees Funding

All children become eligible for 15 hours of Nursery Education Grant from the term after their third birthday.  Some children may be eligible for the extended funding and therefore access 30 funded hours.

Children's House Nursery, Southwell, Nursery Fees

Some children are eligible for 15 hours at 2 years old.  For eligibility please check your childcare choices here.

In order to aid greater choice and meet the needs of families all funded sessions at The Children’s House Day Nursery can be taken over 38 or 48 weeks.

To check your child’s eligibility you can read more here about on the HM Government website about  funded sessions for 2, 3 and 4 year olds.

This blog post by Karen O’Connell, owner of The Children’s House Nursery also provides further information on funded nursery fees.

The table below shows a variety of funding options but is not exhaustive.  We will try and accommodate your needs so please contact us here or on 01636 378060 for a chat about how we can meet your needs.
