FEES

Fees must be paid a term in advance on the first day of each term. One term’s notice in writing is required if a parent wishes to withdraw their child. There will be no reduction in fees if a child is absent from school: if the fees remain unpaid, then it will be assumed that the place is no longer required. The fees stated below are applicable at the time of issue of the prospectus. They may change during a child’s attendance at Daisies Montessori Nursery School; parents will be notified in advance should this arise. Fees may be paid in cash or by cheque made payable to Daisies Nursery School Limited.

NURSERY GRANT AND CHILDCARE VOUCHERS

We are pleased to offer help with childcare costs through a range of government schemes.  Each invoice will state which hours are covered by the free entitlement and which hours are chargeable.  Additional charges will be incurred for school trips.

  • All 3 and 4 year olds are entitled to 15 hours of free early education per week until they go into a Reception class. The entitlement is paid from the term after the child turns 3 years old.
  • In addition, working families are entitled to an extra 15 hours per week meaning a total of 30 hours of free early education per week.
  • We also subscribe to Tax-Free Childcare.
  • There is funding available for two year olds whose families are on low incomes or receiving certain benefits.
  • The school is registered with many voucher schemes. If your employer provides these, it could be a cost-effective method to pay for your child’s nursery education.

OFSTED

Every few years, our nursery will be inspected by the Office of Standards in Education (OFSTED) as a requirement for obtaining the grants. We strive to achieve a balance between Montessori teaching practice and the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) as defined by the Department for Education (DfE). In our last inspection we achieved ‘GOOD’ in all areas.

'Children arrive at the setting happy and enthusiastic. They are greeted warmly by friendly staff, with whom they have developed strong emotional bonds.'
