Fees are charged calendar monthly in advance. The monthly amount is the weekly amount multiplied by 51 (the number of weeks the nursery is open) and then divided by 12. Fees are charged for all holidays and bank holidays, missed sessions due to illness or in the event of the nursery being closed due to circumstances beyond our control such as adverse weather, power failure or fire. One month’s notice must be given for any child leaving the nursery or reducing sessions.
A refundable deposit equivalent to two weeks fees must be paid at the time of registration to reserve a place at the Daycare or Term Time nursery. This amount will be deduced from your final bill.

What the parents say
Greyfriars nursery is great. My child is so excited to get there every morning. I would recommend the nursery to family and friends.
I have found everyone to be very supportive, professional and friendly. On my child’s first day I was clearly upset. The staff recognised this and very kind. They didn’t make a fuss but called very soon afterwards to say that my son was settling well and stopped crying.
Very good leadership. A great team.
My son has been attending the nursery from age two for almost one and a half years now. He loves going to nursery daily. The key worker has made sure my son is looked after constantly and that he does his work independently. The nursery is a second home for him.
Very friendly, experts in child development and a team that I trust to care for my child. Also everyone must be very patient!!!
My child seems to be settling well. Overall, she seems well looked after and she is making good progress with her speech. Thank you!
