    Simple and straight-forward

    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 a tour of your preferred setting.

    We do, however, have our fee calculator below which can give you a rough estimate of how much it may cost to send your child to your chosen nursery.

    Please note that certain factors such as funding can affect these costs, so we suggest that you communicate directly with the Nursery Manager to receive an 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.


We pride ourselves on providing quality childcare.

"Our well-qualified staff are passionate about supporting each child in the best way possible to ensure they have the best start in life and are fully prepared for school."
