Nursery Sessions & Fees

We offer a range of options with different activities and learning opportunities every day. To enable your child to feel settled and to develop important relationships with our Early Years Team we would recommend that all children have a minimum of two sessions per-week; these can be half days or full days.

All children are eligible to the Early Years entitlement funding of 15 hours per week, 34 weeks per year, from the term after their third birthday. We accept childcare vouchers, please click here for further details.

Fees are payable a term in advance.

Free early education entitlement

The Government Free Early Education Entitlement (FEEE) grant allows parents of children in independent schools to claim for 15 hours per week of funding from the term after their child turns 3 years of age until the term after they turn 5 years of age. 

How the funded hours can be accessed at Goslings Nursery and Forest School:

  • FEEE funded hours are restricted to the School Day session, between 8.15am and 3.45pm. FEEE funding entitles a child to two funded School Day sessions per week, 34 weeks of the year, during term time only.

The FEEE funding has no monetary value to parents. Parents will only be billed for additional hours not covered by the FEEE funding. Any changes to hours must be put in writing with one month’s notice given.

Childcare vouchers

We accept Childcare Vouchers as payment for Nursery fees. Childcare Vouchers are non-taxable and are exempt from National Insurance Contributions (N.I.C.) for employees.

All working parents, with children aged under 15, or 16 if disabled, are eligible to receive Childcare Vouchers.

Childcare Vouchers benefit both basic and higher rate tax payers.
