Fees and Funding
Registration & Fees
If you wish to register at one of our nurseries, simply complete our registration form and return it to the Manager of your chosen nursery along with a £25.00 (non – refundable) registration fee.
We do not require you to book a minimum number of sessions per week. After all, you know what is going to work best for you and your child. However, we advise that your child attends at least twice a week to give them continuity and to help them feel settled in their surroundings.
Once a place has been allocated, a deposit of £80.00 is required to secure your child’s place with us. This deposit is refunded when your child leaves the nursery, providing all terms and conditions have been complied with.
The deposit is non-refundable if the child doesn’t start at the nursery.
All Inclusive Fees
Our fees are all inclusive. We provide everything your child will need whilst they are with us including nappies, wipe, milk, snacks and meals. Fees are invoiced monthly in advance.
Early Years Privacy Notice
Please ensure you have read our privacy notice.
All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of government funding, the term following their third birthday. Some children will be eligible for funding the term after their second birthday. Some 3 year olds will be entitled to 30 hours of government funding. To find out if you're eligible, or for more information follow the link below:
At Bluebell Children's Nurseries, we 'stretch' the funding across the 51 weeks a year that we are open.
We offer a limited number of 'fully funded' places. Places are allocated termly on a first come first served basis. These hours are during term time only and session times are 8:30-11:30am and 1-4pm.
The early years pupil premium (EYPP) is additional funding for early years settings to improve the education provided for disadvantaged 3- and 4-year-olds.
3- and 4-year-olds in state-funded early education will attract EYPP funding if they meet at least 1 of the following criteria:
- Their family gets 1 of the following:
- Income Support
- Income-based Jobseeker’s Allowance
- Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
- Support under part VI of the Immigration and Asylum Act 1999
- The guaranteed element of State Pension Credit
- Child Tax Credit (provided they’re not also entitled to Working Tax Credit and have an annual gross income of no more than £16,190)
- Working Tax Credit run-on, which is paid for 4 weeks after they stop qualifying for Working Tax Credit
- Universal Credit
They are currently being looked after by a local authority in England or Wales.
They have left care in England or Wales through:
- An adoption
- a special guardianship order
- a child arrangement order
We work with families in receipt of EYPP to identify how the additional funding can be utilised at our nurseries.
We can't wait to see you!
