Funding Sessions contributions

8-1 or 1–6 (using 5 hours) or 8-6 (Using 10 hours)

Note: The Government has stated that this ‘free funding’ was never intended to ‘cover the cost of consumables’ this means we are allowed to ask you for a fee towards costs that are on top of the usual care. Snack, access to Tapestry your child’s online learning journal, our higher ratio of staff than required, cooking ingredients, art supplies amongst other things are all considered ‘extras’.

Until such a time that we receive adequate funding, that meets the costs of delivering quality care we ask for a contribution of £5.00 for each funded session your child attends. If a whole day session £10.00 minimal supplement.

Thus, if your child attends 3 sessions a week (15 hours) we ask for a contribution of £15.00



5% discount if fees to pay 6 months up front

10 % sibling discount



A £100 will be required to hold a place for your child. This is non-refundable if you cancel your place before starting.

When your child leaves the nursery the deposit will be deducted from the final fee payment providing one month’s notice is given in writing to the nursery on the first day of the preceding month

A £50 non-refundable administration fee is required upon registration

Emergency day swaps

In cases of healthcare or childcare emergencies, we can offer up to a maximum of 5 emergency day swaps per year, subject to availability. An agreed emergency day swap is to be used in the same calendar month as the absence. Bank holidays and nursery closures are exempt.


Extra sessions

Subject to availability, you can purchase extra ad hoc days at the standard session rate. Ad hoc days can be booked a maximum of two weeks before the requested date.



Fees are due in advance, and we issue invoices mid-month for the following month. Unfortunately, there can be no refunds for sickness or holidays.

Fees are calculated based on the 51 weeks of the year that Kinderversity Fordcombe is open averaged into 12 monthly payments i.e. each invoice is for 4.25 weeks. Monthly payments will include bank and public holidays as well as inset days, which are payable in full in spite of closure, as our monthly staffing costs remain the same.

The Nursery is also closed 2 days a year to allow for staff training and these dates are notified to parents in advance. There is no reduction in the payment of fees for when the nursery is closed on these training days.



We offer flexible care which means although you book the full session you may choose to drop off and collect at any point during this session.

We reserve the right to apply a late collection charge of £15 for every 15 minutes or part thereof after your session has ended.

Fees are subject to change at the proprietor’s discretion.

FEEE Sessions

You will be required to sign a Parental Declaration form at the start of each term during ‘headcount’ week to confirm the number of FEEE hours you will be claiming at Kinderversity.

If your child starts after ‘headcount’ week at the start of the term then funding will not be able to be secured until the following term if funding has already been claimed elsewhere.

All sessions are subject to availability. For more information please call us or email us and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
