A £60.00 non-refundable deposit is required which will be deducted from the first invoice. We ask for the first month’s fees upfront before your child starts at nursery.

Please provide nappies, baby wipes and formula milk. We provide full fat cow’s milk once your child is 12 months old.

Sibling Discount

There will be a sibling discount of 10% for full time places only.

Teacher Offer

Parents currently working in education are entitled to four weeks absence during August which they will not be charged for. Extra days cannot be offered during this period. In order to receive this offer please show evidence of your place of employment.

Absence

All absences are charged at normal rate. This enables your place to be retained. Due to the strict staffing ratios that are adhered to at Almond House, patterns of attendance must be adhered to. A child is unable to ‘swap’ days of attendance. If extra days of attendance are required by parents, these will be given at the discretion of nursery management. Parents will be invoiced separately for extra days and will be charged £50.

Notice

We ask for a minimum of one calendar month’s notice when terminating a nursery place.

Bank Holidays

Almond House will be closed on Bank Holidays and during the Christmas week. Fees are calculated over 50 weeks per year. This means you will not be charged when Almond House is closed.

Childcare Vouchers

Many employers now offer childcare vouchers. These are non-taxable and exempt from national insurance and can mean savings to parents of between £1,600 and £2,100 per annum. Please ask for further details.

Please note:

Fees are paid calendar monthly in advance by invoice notification or alternatively standing order arrangements must be made. Failure to pay fees as agreed may result in your child’s place being withdrawn. Please be aware that we pursue all outstanding debt through the small claims court. Fees will be reviewed annually in July.

Government Funding

Three and Four Year Old Funding

If your child is aged three years or older you are entitled to access our high quality pre-school, free of charge! If you would like your child to come to Almond House Nursery for purely funded sessions then these are term time only and operate during the following hours:

  • Monday to Friday (five sessions of three hours) 9.00 to 12.00pm

All of these sessions include a free meal.

For parents who require full day care, then your funding will be deducted from your fees which will be automatically reduced (see above) .
