Childcare vouchers

We allow part and full payment of childcare using childcare vouchers.

The key is they enable you to pay for childcare out of your PRE-TAX and national insurance income, which can make huge savings.

We are registered with most voucher companies but please check with the nursery manager. If we are not we will take on the administration duties to get registered, hassle free.

Childcare tax credits

A large number of families are eligible for some financial assistance through Child Tax Credit and Working Tax Credit. The amount you receive will depend on your circumstances. The factors considered are:

  • Household income
  • Single or couple
  • Number for children
  • Working hours
  • If you’ve a disability

Many people do not realize they are entitled for tax credits so it is worth checking. Use the link below to check eligibility.

You’ll need details of:

  • your income
  • your partner’s income
  • your working hours
  • any benefits you’re claiming, or have just stopped claiming
  • the average weekly amount you spend on childcare

Saving on deposits

Unlike many other nurseries we only ask for £200 deposit. Yes that’s it, no matter how many days your child attends. We understand paying the first months fees and a deposit of an equal amount can be a strain, so we have tried to help families with the initial cost.

Free Settling in period

The settling in period is completely free of charge, which can be a saving of over £300. We want the family and the child to focus solely on the transition from home life to nursery to make it a joyful, exciting moment for all.
