The Pumpkin Patch Nursery School is open 51 weeks per year. We close for bank holidays and also for two staff training days. The first is always our first day back into work following the Christmas break. These closures are taken into account when calculating your child’s fees.

To secure a place, one week’s applicable fee is to be paid before our gradual admission process can commence. This deposit is then deducted from your final payment once the nursery receives your 4 weeks’ written notice.

The number of sessions or days each child does per week is added together and then multiplied by 51 weeks and then divided by 12 to set your monthly payment.

We have many ways to pay your childcare fees, our preferred method of payment is by banking standing order payable into the bank in advance. We are registered with most childcare voucher companies for parents who receive childcare vouchers through work and this amount is deducted from your monthly fee. Please speak to the nursery manager on your child’s gradual admission for further information.

Family discounts are available at The Pumpkin Patch Nursery School, if you have siblings at nursery, the eldest sibling will have a 10% reduction in fees.
