No hidden fees

We know how hectic life as a parent can be, so we’ve saved you the trouble of remembering the little things. We provide nappies, wipes and cream, as well as meals and milk throughout the day. No need to worry about additional costs – these are all on us. Our healthy eating menus include vegetarian options and are developed with the specific needs of toddlers and young children in mind.

Tax-free childcare

We are happy to accept the Universal Entitlement of Early Years Funding, which provides 15 hours of free childcare to children aged 3-4. Please note that we can only accept this funding within Early Years Age 3-4, for the term after the child turns 3.

You can find out more about this funding on the Government’s website. Please note that it is parents’ responsibility to check eligibility with the council and apply for this funding.
