Nursery Fees

Nursery fees are payable on a monthly basis on the first day of each month in advance. Payment can be made by standing order bank transfer, cheque or cash.

Monthly invoices are sent to parents electronically so that all charges are clearly shown. Additional nursery care days can be purchased after authorisation by the nursery manager and invoices will be issued separately for these.

Childcare Vouchers

Your employer may offer a childcare voucher scheme. 
Puddle-ducks accepts all childcare vouchers and can provide details to assist you if required.

Free childcare - Flexible Free entitlement for 3 & 4 year olds

Puddle-ducks offers funded places for 3 year olds for 15* and 30* hours for 39 weeks of the year.

* As the nursery is open for 12 months and all contracts are issued on this basis, this funding is stretched and relates to 47.5 hours and 95 hours respectively. Funded hours only available between set times – contact nursery for more information. Minimum attendance days of 2 and 3 days respectively apply.

The funding received from the government does not cover our overhead operating costs. Parents wishing to access this funding through our nursery must agree to pay for unfunded hours (we are open 11.5 hours per day) and a monthly service charge which covers curriculum activities, all meals, staffing costs and overhead costs. Existing parents will not be subject to any increases on their current monthly costs regarding this funding, but will be required to sign an addendum to their contract – full terms and conditions will be sent to existing parents when this funding is available to them.

New parents wishing to access funded places must agree to conditions outlined in their contract pack. Details of the charges applicable can be discussed with the nursery.

Sibling Discounts 
We offer a generous sibling discount for children, which is determined by the number of days children attend our nursery. Please discuss this with our nursery manager.
