How often do you review your fees?
Our fees are reviewed each June through a structure process to look at the costs of operating the nursery. If we feel the operating costs have risen we will then increase fees. You will receive notice in August of the fee increase, with the first month of increase being August.

Splash Day Nursery is pleased to offer 30 hours funded childcare for all eligible families. If eligible you will be entitled to access the 30 funded hours from the beginning of the term following your child’s 3rd birthday. All 3 and 4-year-olds in England currently receive 15 hours a week government funded early education. If their parents are living and working in England, 3 and 4-year-olds may be entitled to 30 hours funded childcare, which is up to 1,140 hours per year in total! Your child is entitled to the grant the school term after their 3rd birthday. The nursery is required to complete a number of forms for the Local Education
