If you require more information about our fees, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note the following:
An administrative fee is payable whenever there is a change to your Nursery contract, for example to reflect a change in permanent Nursery sessions. The first change is at no cost, however a charge of £10 is incurred for any subsequent changes.
Nursery fees may be paid monthly, in advance (on the 1st of the month) by direct debit, HM taxfree childcare, childcare voucher or by salary sacrifice (University employees only).
Payment by HM Taxfree Childcare, childcare voucher or salary sacrifice represents a saving on Nursery fees as a saving on tax and national insurance is made. Many employers now provide a childcare voucher facility, and we are happy to advise parents/carers on obtaining childcare vouchers.
University employees are able to make a tax and national insurance saving on the whole of their monthly Nursery fees payments via the salary sacrifice scheme, as Nursery fees are deducted from gross salary, before tax and national insurance payments are deducted. Further details can be provided on request.
