Session Times & Fees

We know that different families need different types of childcare and we offer a range of different sessions and contract to help you find the best package for you.

Leweston Nursery offers 30 hours of government funding to eligible families and accepts a number of different childcare vouchers providers.

Breakfast Club

Toast, cereal and fruit are served in the Nursery from 07.30-08.00. The breakfast club is available to children from 0-8 years old.

Full-time contract

Full-time contracts are based on 50 weeks a year and offer a choice of sessions: 8am to 1pm, 1pm to 6pm or 8am to 6pm. Parents of children aged 3 and 4 who are eligible for Government funding may use the allocated 38 weeks per year of funding over the 50 weeks to facilitate invoicing. The government funded sessions are between 8am to 12 noon within the morning session and from 1pm to 5pm with the afternoon session. A charge of 95p per funded hour is made to cover food and other consumables.

In all cases Leweston Nursery requires a child to attend a minimum of two sessions per week to support their familiarisation with their surroundings. This can be either one whole, or two half days.

A late collection fee of £10 will be charged for every 15 minutes beyond the end of the booked session that a child remains uncollected in Nursery. This is to support the costs of maintaining the correct staff ratios.
