Fees and Funding

*SPECIAL OFFER* 9 hours settling in sessions + your first week FREE!

At Lawnswood Childcare we aim to ensure that our fees are fair and reasonable and competitive with other nurseries in the locality offering the same level of service. We are open and honest about our fees, making our charges as straightforward as possible, specifically there will be no hidden extras.

Increases in fees as a rule occur annually to take into account inflation, wages and other costs that inevitably increase year on year. Increases in fees will be notified well in advance, to enable you to compare the value offered at other nurseries and cancel your agreement with Lawnswood Childcare before the new rates take effect if you so wish. Once a new rate is notified, it will normally remain in force for a minimum of one year.

We accept the following forms of payment;

  • Bank transfer / standing order
  • Cash
  • Childcare vouchers
  • Tax Free Childcare
  • Card payment
  • Funding through Student Finance or your college

Please note we do not accept cheque except in exceptional circumstances and with prior agreement from a Director of the company. An administration fee of £10.00 will be applied to all cheque payments.

Our fees are due monthly in advance. Weekly payment maybe accepted with prior agreement of a nursery director.

Lawnswood Childcare Fees

Your fees are calculated by taking your weekly session fee x 52 weeks per year / 12 months to get an equal monthly payment. Fees are due on the 1st day of each month. If your child starts part way through a month your first payment will be calculated based on the actual amount of sessions attended during that period. Your monthly equalised payments will then begin from the 1st of the month thereafter.

A deposit equal to 50% of a full month’s fee is due to secure your place. This deposit will be refunded to you on termination of your nursery contract.
