  • Who we are

    A nurturing village nursery bursting with opportunities

    A cosy, warm and welcoming nursery offering a very special learning environment.

    Our size is what makes us truly special; we are a close knit, home from home nursery welcoming up to 34 children per day. Our smaller size means that our team know every child and family across the nursery; ensuring that we are able to provide the very best learning opportunities to each child and support to their whole family.

    Our nursery consists of three rooms, all carefully designed to enhance children’s development depending on their age group. We also have a tranquil sleep room and a secure outside play area complemented by our secret garden.

    Simple and straight-forward

    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.


The perfect learning environment for your child

"We pride ourselves on our nurturing size, allowing the whole team to know each and every child throughout the nursery."
