A variety of childcare contracts are available to suit different family needs including full time and part time places. We also offer shift pattern contracts, subject always to availability of sessions, and have a limited number of term time only places available.

Some council funded places are also offered. Our daily rate for a morning session includes morning snack and lunch, afternoon session rates include afternoon snack.


We offer a 5% discount for siblings, and a 5% discount for children who are full time, although only one of these discounts is available if a child falls into both categories.

Extra hours can be booked between 12 and 2pm, If you are booking a morning session which ends at 1pm, but require flexibility, you can book an extra hour from 1pm until 2pm. Similarly, if you are booking an afternoon session from 1pm, you can book an extra hour before the session starts from noon until 1pm, and this can include lunch if required.
