Admissions

We provide exceptional childcare for children aged 2-5 years and pride ourselves on offering outstanding, well-equipped surroundings and materials for children to enjoy and learn from.

We operate an inclusion and equality policy and ensure that all children have access to nursery places and services irrespective of their gender, race, ability, religion. All places are offered depending on availability. If we are unable to offer an immediate start date, parents/carers will be invited to join our waiting list.

A registration fee of £25 is required in order to place a child’s name on our waiting list.  The registration fee does not guarantee a place at the nursery.

 

Allocation of places on the waiting list are based on the availability of spaces in each group.  A place is offered on the basis of the following order of priority:  

 

Current child wishing to increase sessions

Sibling already in the nursery

Alumni sibling

Full time places

Date of request

Fees

Our fees are £73 per day

There is a minimum requirement of 2 days per week increasing to 3 days per week once your child turns 3.

Monthly invoices are provided in advance, based on the number of days of attendance in that month. Please note we do not charge for bank holidays or

the week we are closed over Christmas and New Year.

Monthly fees on an average month are shown below

Nursery Education Funding

 

We are registered with the London Borough of Enfield to offer the universal free place of up to 15 hours (per eligible child) per week.

Full fees are charged until a child becomes eligible to claim the universal free place, the term after they turn three years old.

The offer is based on 38 weeks per year, and as a provider of year round childcare, we average this out over the year with only August being the only non-funded month.

The funding is paid directly to the nursery and only covers basic childcare. It does not include any of the additional services which are detailed below. 

The 15 hours of universal funding and 30 hours extended funding are accessible by agreeing to our ‘Additional Services Package’ as detailed below. Please note that it may be possible to access a completely free offer at another provider.

Employer Assistance

Employers are increasingly offering support for childcare through childcare voucher schemes. The money comes directly off your salary before deductions, giving you savings on tax and National Insurance contributions. You should ask your employer if this is a benefit offered.

We accept most childcare vouchers, which are paid directly to CLNS and are offset against your monthly fee invoice.

Tax Free Childcare

Support for working families with children under 12. For every £8 you pay in, the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child, per year. Visit the Childcare Choices website for more information: http://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk
