Included within our fees are freshly prepared meals, nappies, wipes, sudocream, bottles, teats and milk formula.
Additional fees apply to grant children.
Abacus Nursery offers a 5% discount to children that attend on a full-time basis. In addition, a 5% discount is offered to parents/carers for any additional children who attend the nursery on the same session.
Full fees are payable from the agreed start date. If you decide to delay your child’s start date, fees are still payable from the original agreed start date. A £100 deposit is required on booking your child at Abacus.
The deposit is retained in full until your child leaves the nursery, i.e. to go to school or until four weeks’ notice has been given and final payment of fees received.
Any child who is absent for two weeks or more without notifying the nursery shall be deemed to have withdrawn from the setting. You will be sent an invoice for the two weeks and future sessions will be terminated, in line with our policies and procedure.
Fees are calculated, relevant deductions made and divided into 12 equal monthly payments. All fees are due on the 1st of the month for that month and are payable by standing order. If you require an alternative payment method this may be discussed and arranged with the nursery manager, Mrs Zoe Gordon.
Any additional sessions will be invoiced separately, however permanent changes will result in a re-calculation of your fees.
The only additional charge is for meals if your child attends on the Educational Grant, meals are charged term time only in line with your child’s attendance and are invoiced at the end of each calendar month. Parents/Carers are welcome to provide a packed lunch if preferred.
Fees are reviewed annually in July and you will be notified in writing of any increases in fees. These changes would be put into effect from the following September.
