  • Fees are due, and payable, one full month in advance.
  • Our fees are based on a 51-week year, allowing for the period when the nursery is closed between Christmas and New Year.
  • If your child is unable to attend a scheduled session for any reason, fees are still payable.
  • Please note children are required to attend a minimum of four sessions per week in order to ensure continuity of care.

Pre-school funding

We work in partnership with Edinburgh City Council to provide pre-school teaching in line with the national curriculum. This means parents of children between three and five years will be eligible for grant funding towards fees. Applying for this grant funding could give you up to £2,100 per year towards your childcare.

Childcare vouchers

We welcome all employer childcare vouchers, which could help you save even more money through reduced tax and National Insurance contributions. Ask your employer for details.
