All fees are revised annually at the beginning of June and implemented at the beginning of September. Parents paying subsidised fees will be asked to verify their current circumstances and eligibility at regular intervals.

We require 4 weeks’ notice of any cancellation or amendment to your child’s sessions.

Subsidised places

St George’s has provided affordable childcare within our local community for more than 30 years. We are able to offer subsidised places to families in financial difficulty, so that their children can also have the best possible start in life. All subsidised places are made possible through our programme of charity fundraising; no contribution is taken from families who pay full fees. Please contact the office to find out more.

If you or someone you know is in need of support, please contact us at childcaremanager@stgeorgeschildcare.co.uk to find out more about eligibility.


A deposit of £100 will hold your child’s place in the nursery before their starting day. Once their placement has been confirmed and the deposit paid, any cancellation with less than four weeks’ notice will result in a forfeit of the deposit. If your child does join us, then your deposit will be deducted from the required notice period of four weeks when they leave.

Free Early Education (FEE): 15 or 30 Hours for 38 weeks of the year 

The local authorities provide FEE to assist with nursery or playgroup fees for children who will be 3 years old at the start of the next term.

Child’s birthdayWhen you can claim
1st January to 31st MarchThe beginning of term on or after 1st April
1st April to 31st AugustThe beginning of term on or after 1st September
1st September to 31st DecemberThe beginning of term on or after 1st January

For example, if your child was born on the 15th March 2019, you can receive subsidised childcare when the next term starts after the 1st April 2022.

The FEE is available term-time only and for up to 30 hours per week.  Depending on the sessional fees and the opening times of the Nursery, the FEE will be deducted from the child’s fees and the remaining balance itemised for payment by parents/carers.

If a child is attending more than one nursery or playgroup, the FEE for up to 30 hours from September is divided between the providers. If children are attending a nursery attached to a school, the school will claim the funding. Attendance registers are kept and show evidence of each child’s attendance record, the time they arrive and the time they leave each session.
