LATE COLLECTION will be charged at £16.00 for every fifteen minutes. We adhere to strict ratios and staff according to pre booked hours of care, late collection compromises this. All children who attend for funded only places on a termly basis will be charged £1.00 per session for breakfast and snack in a morning session and £1.50 for snack and tea in an afternoon session. 

We can claim 2, 3 and 4 year old funding for all eligible children. Currently the free hours of care are 15 hours per week for all children, please note that 2 year old funding and the additional Pupil Premium for 3 / 4 year olds is based on Government criteria and you will need to check with your local children’s centre or Early years Department to establish if your child is eligible. 

Funded hours will be allocated off Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays were applicable, please be advised that your 10% discount will only be appiled during non-term weeks. 

We have limited places for term time only children, please be aware that if you choose to take up a place at Rhymes Nursery on this basis all extra hours will be charged at the hourly rate of £6.75.  Rhymes can not guarantee sessions will remain the same from term to term as prioty will be given to children attending on a full year basis. Please discuss your requirements with the Nursery Manager if you wish your child to attend termly. 

Fees are payable in advance before the first of the month they are due, a late charge of £25.00 will be added to your bill if fees are consistently late. 

We accept all childcare vouchers, but advise you that your first fees payable to the Nursery will need to be paid in full, as the receipt of vouchers is often inconsistent resulting in continual late payment. 

Payment can be made by BACS, CASH, CHEQUE AND OR VOUCHERS. 

To secure a place at Rhymes Nursery a £50.00 administration fee is required, this is non refundable.
