Truly Scrumptious Early Years Nursery

Booking a deposit

Once you have been offered a place at the nursery, you will be required to sign a contract and registration forms and pay a deposit to secure a place for your child.

If the deposit and paperwork have been completed and a space has been secured but then cancelled or withdrawn before the child’s start date a £25 admiration fee will be deducted from the deposit.  Parents must give 4 weeks’ notice of termination of the contract and all outstanding fees paid in full to claim back the deposit.

The full day nursery fee is £71.00 7:30am to 6:30pm. Half Day sessions are £45.00 and run from 7.30am -1pm and 1.00pm- 6.30pm.

The nursery is open 51 weeks and is closed for the Christmas period and Bank holidays which is chargeable.

All fees are due, and payable, one full month in advance by standing order, cash, and cheque and or childcare vouchers/ tax free childcare scheme.

Our fees are calculated using the following formula:

£71         (amount of sessions per attended per week)        52 (weeks)              12(months)


Non-attendance, sickness & Holidays

Fees are payable during periods of sickness, family holidays and bank holidays.

Outstanding Fees

As per the contract payments must be made in full and in advance before the 5th working day of the month.  Late payments will incur a fine of £10 plus 5% each day thereafter.

Parents will be issued with a reminder invoice, statement of fees and a letter asking payment to be made within 7 days of the date of the letter.

Failure to do so will result in a second letter issued, informing parents not to bring their child into nursery until the outstanding balance is paid in full and an updated statement including a 10% administration charge.

In the instance that payment is in arrears after receiving 2 reminder letters, the child’s placement at Truly Scrumptious will be terminated and the outstanding balance will be referred to a debt collection agency.
