Nursery School Fees

  • Our fees are highly competitive, reflecting our expertise, quality of staff, child-teacher ratios, and investment in the setting and our educational resources.
  • All 3-year-old children are entitled to 15 hours of funding per week; while some children are eligible for funding up to 30 hours per week. You should check whether your child is eligible for 30 hours funding through your local authority. For instance, Enfield residents may want to visit the Council’s Informed Families. Barnet Council residents may find more information through this page.
  • Please ask us any questions you may have in advance of Registration, and read the information below carefully.
  • As per our Terms and Conditions, the breakdown of fees will be shown in the invoices you receive and it will include the cost of attendance (and, when relevant, any additional costs for workshops and consumables, lunches and additional hours of attendance over and above any free entitlement funding). Upon taking up a place, you agree to pay the entirety of these fees strictly at the start of each term.
  • Our sessions (morning or afternoon) are for 4 full hours (equivalent to half a day); a session costs £44.
  • Full days (8:30am – 4:30pm) are 8 hours long and cost £77.
  • We also offer extended sessions from 8:15am to 5:30pm: Early drop-off (during 8:15am-8:30am) for £3.50; Extended afternoon (4:30pm-5:30pm) for £8.50.
  • Discounts: Apart from a siblings discount of 10%, we also offer discounts for high attendance rates. In particular, for attendance of 4 full days, we apply a 3% discount, while for full-week attendance (5 days) we apply a 5% discount.
  • Therefore, for full attendance, our rate is £73.15 per day.
  • We operate for 39 weeks per year, following Enfield’s School Term Dates
  • For 3-year-old children in receipt of funding, the funded period is for 38 weeks per annum, so there is always an additional (non-funded) week, as well as potentially additional hours per week.
  • Term fees should be settled at the start of each term, according to our standard Terms and Conditions.
  • Finally, note that all choices and changes to termly attendance schedules have to be discussed and agreed upon with the Head of School with one full term’s notice period. 

Please do get in touch with us for further information and to arrange a visit or register and secure a place or go on our waiting list.

Example 1: Two-year-old child attending for 3 afternoons & 1 full day

  • A two-year-old boy, Cixin, attends Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday afternoons and the whole day on Thursday.
  • The total number of hours of attendance per week is (3 sessions x 4 hours) and (1 full day x 8 hours), which amounts to 20 hours per week.
  • The total weekly cost of attendance per week is (3 sessions x £44 per session) and (1 full day x £77 per day), which amounts to £209 per week.
  • Term duration varies, in general. For this example, we assume that the term is 13 weeks long (which is the average term duration over a 39-week school year).
  • Then the total cost of Cixin’s attendance for this Term is £2,717.
  • If extended hours in the morning/afternoon, or lunches are added, then this will be added separately to the term’s invoice. 

Example 2: Three-year-old child attending for 3 afternoons & 1 full day

  • A three-year-old girl, Helen, attends Monday afternoon, Tuesday & Wednesday mornings, and the whole day on Friday.
  • Assume Helen receives the (universal) entitlement funding of 15 hours per week by the local authority. Every three-year-old is entitled to this. (However, some children are entitled to 30 hours, therefore, it is important to check your eligibility with your local authority well before the start of attendance in a nursery.)
  • The total number of hours of attendance is (3 sessions x 4 hours) and (1 full day x 8 hours), which amounts to 20 hours per week: in this case, 15 hours are covered by the entitlement funding for the funded period (12 weeks), plus 5 additional hours per week.
  • The cost of each additional hour, outside of the funded entitlement, is £12 per hour.
  • Finally, assume the funded period for this particular Term covers 12 weeks (so there is one additional week outside the funding period, which needs to be costed separately).
  • The last part of the breakdown has to do with the cost of consumables, specialist classes and workshops.
  • Helen will be bringing her own lunch to the setting, and therefore we will not charge for lunches.
  • In this case, the breakdown of fees for Helen’s attendance this Term will look as follows:
