reducing childcare costs

The Valley Nursery & Kids Club is opened from Monday to Friday between 7.45am – 6pm.

Full day / Half day:

The Valley Nursery offers Full Day (7.45am-6.pm) or Half Day (7.45am-1pm or 1pm-6pm) sessions. Sessions may be extended by a short period of time at the discretion of the nursery and charged accordingly. When you book your child in full time, 5 days a week with us, you get half a day per week for Free! Also, all meals are included in our fees; we won’t charge you extra for our nutritious food!

Our fees are highly competitive, lower than most nurseries around us, because we are considerate to families’ tight budget providing high quality childcare at the same time. The children who choose to come to us are very happy here.

Monthly fees are calculated by multiplying weekly fees by 52 weeks and divided by 12 equal payments. Periods of sickness and family holidays, when your child cannot attend the nursery, will be charged. 

How NOT to lose a Bank Holiday session:

The nursery will be closed on all official public Bank Holidays, Easter and Christmas Day, Boxing Day and New Years Day, these days will still be charged. However, if your regular childcare session falls on for example a Bank Holiday, your day can be swapped for another day either the week before, the week of the Bank Holiday, or the week after, subject to availability and by prior arrangement with the nursery manager. This option is not available for Government funded places.

Changing / adding on sessions:

The nursery will accommodate the need for increased sessions wherever possible, we just need at least a week notice to add on extra sessions. One month’s written notice must be given to terminate a place or reduce sessions. We offer great flexibility in sessions including shift rotation to meet all families’ needs, please don’t hesitate to call us for more details!

Free Taster Session:

Many parents like to come in and watch their child in our nursery to see how they feel with our team and the resources we have here. To help with this, you can register for a free taster session.

Free places for 2 year olds:

If your child has reached the age of 2, and your family qualifies, you could be entitled to 15 hours per week free childcare, term time only, or 11hrs / week stretched over 51 weeks.

Free places for 3 – 5 year olds:

Once your child has reached the age of 3, you could qualify for 15 / 30 hours per week free childcare. The 15hrs / 30hrs Free Entitlement can be used over either term time only or stretched over 51 weeks, as it suits best for the family. For further details please ask a member of staff.

Childcare voucher tax benefits:

If you receive childcare vouchers from your employer, you will not pay any tax on these vouchers when used towards your childcare.
