Fees & Funding – De Lacey Day Nursery School
How much will it cost?

Our fees & funding

Minimum of 10 hours per week, booked in advance, which can be mix’n’matched (so you can have some morning, some afternoons and some full days, as you prefer, though once hours are booked, they can’t be swapped). All fees payable monthly in advance. All attendance options available during term time only OR stretched over 50 weeks of the year.

Two year old funding accepted. 15 and 30 Hours 3&4 year old funding accepted, please see below.

All fees are payable in full (including Bank Holidays when we are shut, a discount for which has already been calculated into our hourly rate) regardless of a child’s absence due to sickness, family holidays, or your own choice. We close over the Christmas, and Easter periods but this is taken into account and a reduction has been spread across the twelve equal monthly payments.
