Fees

DISCOUNTS

A ‘Sibling Discount’ will be applied where there is more than one child from the same family attending the nursery and this will be applied only to the elder child’s fees providing they attend three or more full days a week.

Please check with the Nursery Manager to see if the discount is applicable at the time of registration.

CHILDCARE VOUCHERS

Each working parent whose employer has selected to provide them with employer-supported childcare using the Childcare Voucher route does not have to pay tax or NIC on the first £55 per week, or £243 per month. This means considerable savings can be made against the cost of childcare by redeeming these vouchers.

Cranbrook accepts all reputable types of Childcare Vouchers.

You are required to have received your voucher or vouchers prior to using them. They cannot be backdated. You will only receive tax and NICS exempt vouchers after you have formally agreed with your employer to join a childcare voucher scheme.

As an example, if you are due to pay Cranbrook on 1 Aug and your first Childcare Vouchers are due to be issued on 15 Aug, you will be required to pay Cranbrook in full on 1 Aug and use your Childcare Vouchers for the fees due on the 1 Sep.

For more information on how the Childcare Voucher Scheme operates please refer to www.hmrc.gov.uk/childcare.

EARLY YEARS FREE ENTITLEMENT

All three and four year olds are entitled to part time Early Years funded sessions. This entitlement is provided subject to the criteria set out by the local authority and the funding available within each area but generally starts the term after a child’s third birthday.
It will be necessary for you to check with the Nursery Manager as to the criteria applicable.

PAYMENTS

Payment may be made by bank transfer, cheque, debit/credit card, Childcare Vouchers and cash.
