Partnership with Parents

We recognise that, as parents, you are the major educator in your child’s life. We value all comments and suggestions regarding Brooklands Childcare and would be delighted if you wish to participate with your child’s group on any available occasion.

Nursery Fees

All our nurseries are open from 7.30am until 6pm. We have a full week fee as well as full day and half day rates, and we will always try to accommodate the individual needs of our parents. Should you require sessions which differ from our full and half days, please contact one of our management team to discuss this further.

Nursery fees are set annually, each January. Please contact the site of your choice for an up-to-date current fee structure.

All fees are paid weekly or monthly by direct debit. Full fees are payable except when the nursery is closed over the Christmas and New Year period.

Funding

All 3 and 4-year-olds in England are entitled to 570 hours of free early education or childcare a year. This is often taken as 15 hours each week for 38 weeks of the year. Some 2-year-olds are also eligible.

You can start claiming after your child turns 3. The date you can claim will depend on when their birthday is.
