Partnership With Parents

Here at Brooklands Childcare we understand that, as parents, you play a pivotal role as the are the primary educators in your child’s life. We deeply appreciate your feedback and suggestions regarding Brooklands Childcare, and we would be thrilled if you choose to actively engage with your child’s group on any available occasion. Your involvement is highly valued and encouraged.

Nursery Fees

Our nurseries are open from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm, offering flexible fee options that cater to your unique needs. We provide full-week rates, as well as full-day and half-day options, and we will always try to tailor our services to accommodate your individual needs. If you need sessions that differ from our standard full and half-day offerings, please reach out to one of our management team members, and we’ll be happy to discuss this further.

Our nursery fees are reviewed annually in January. To obtain the most up-to-date fee structure, please get in touch with your preferred site.

All fees are paid on a weekly or monthly basis through direct debit. Please note that full fees apply, except during the Christmas and New Year period when the nursery is closed.


In England All 3 and 4-year-olds in England are entitled to 570 hours of free early education or childcare annually. This is often taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year. Additionally, certain 2-year-olds can also be eligible, depending on specific criteria, such as the child being in a low-income family or having special needs.

You can initiate the claim process once your child turns 3. The specific claim start date is determined by your child’s birthday.
