  • Who we are

    Sets them on the right track for a life full of health and happiness

    Faringdon Day Nursery is a very special place indeed. It is here that our dream to give children the best possible start in life began back in 2002.

    Since then, this charming nursery has risen to become a flagship of nursery care excellence in the Faringdon area – even being awarded a Millie’s Mark for our extra commitment to paediatric first aid.

    As a guide, the average cost of sending a child under 2 to an Old Station Nursery is £150 per week (part-time) and £300 per week (full-time).

    Our nurseries have many outstanding and unique qualities that you’ll want to see and experience for yourself. Because of this, we prefer to discuss individual day nursery costs with you during your visit to the nursery you’re interested in.

    Alternatively,  you can click the button below to use our handy fee calculator, which will provide you with an estimate. Please note: as certain factors such as funding can affect these costs, we suggest that you communicate directly with the nursery manager to receive a more accurate quote that fulfils your requirements.

    Fee Calculator


    Helping pay for your childcare

    Understandably, the cost of day nursery can put many mums and dads off choosing it as an option. But there are a range of Government schemes open to parents that can make nursery affordable – and we will do everything we can to help you understand the choices and access the funding that you might be eligible for.

    Tax-Free Childcare  – For working families earning under £100k and at least £131 per week (equal to 16 hours at the National Minimum or Living Wage) each who aren’t receiving Tax Credits, Universal Credit or childcare voucher.

    15 hours and 30 hours Funded Childcare  – For many working parents of 2 year olds, and 3 – 4 year olds for 38 weeks each year.


Train driver or vet, we’re here to help them dream bigger

‘Faringdon was our first nursery and has seen many children develop and grow over the years. We offer great care and education and many local schools comment on being able to tell a Reception-aged child who has come from The Old Station Nursery.’
