All-inclusive fees


Our fees are inclusive of all meals and snacks, nappies, wipes, formula milk, outings and visits and all enrichments to the curriculum, so there are no hidden extras to worry about.

We offer discounted rates for employees of Oxford University Hospitals Trust so please get in touch to request a copy if these rates will be applicable to you.

We also offer a 9% discount on our standard fees for anyone working for a 999 service, who is not eligible for the OUH discount.


All 3 and 4 year old children in England and Wales are eligible for 15 hours of funded childcare per week (during term time). This funding is known as the “Universal Entitlement” and eligibility automatically starts from the 1st January, the 1st April, or 1st September following a child’s 3rd birthday.

As our nursery is open all year round, we offer the universal entitlement or 15 hours funding, on what is called a “stretched” basis. This means that your child’s funding is spread over the whole year. This equates to up to 11.25 hours per week of funded childcare for 51 weeks as we are closed between Christmas and New Year.

Funded hours

Eligible parents of 3 & 4 year olds may also be able to claim an additional 15 hours of funded childcare per week, which is known as the 30 Hours Funding or “Extended Entitlement”. At our nursery, this is also stretched to provide up to a maximum of 22.5 hours per week.

We offer a limited number of fully funded places which are subject to availability. Please speak to the nursery manager to discuss availability for these places.

Families of children receiving certain types of support, may also be eligible for 15 hours funding from the term after their child turns 2. Parents can check their eligibility and apply for this type of funding here. Please speak to the nursery manager if you are eligible for this type of funding and/or are unable to apply online as we will be able to support you with your application.
