Nursery Fee Structure

Our offer

The Nursery is open for 51 weeks of the year (closing only for 1 week at Christmas and 3 Inset days per academic year).  The year will be split into 3 equal invoice periods of 17 weeks.  We do not charge for the week at Christmas however all other bank holidays and Inset days are fully chargeable. 

Our core hours are 9-4pm, in which time we offer a broad and balanced curriculum and all consumables (e.g. pens, pencils) and lunch is included. 

Our extended offer consists of breakfast club between 8-9am (includes breakfast) and tea between 4-6pm (includes tea).  Both of these are subject to availability.

Funded Hours

All 3 and 4 year olds are able to access 570 funded hours from the term after their 3rd birthday.  The term dates for the purposes of determining eligibility are as follows:

  • 1st September – 31st December
  • 1st January – 31st March
  • 1st April – 31st August

Children are able to access a maximum of 11.18 funded hours per week between our core hours of 9am to 4pm, over 51 weeks of the year.  These funded hours are provided free and the additional hours which your child attends will be chargeable.  Breakfast and tea are charged separately.  Please note that the funding is only for actual days attended therefore funding cannot be attributed in lieu of notice or absence.  Funding is provided to The Villa for the place, therefore if a child leaves mid-way through a charging period, the remaining funding will be used to provide funded hours for a child who then joins the setting (the funding is not attached to a particular child).  You will be asked to complete and sign a Southwark Parent Agreement and we will then apply for the funding on your behalf when they become eligible.
