Fees and Registration

At Hythe Bay Nursery we believe in open communication with all parents/carers and staff and therefore present this fees structure in order to ensure that everyone fully understands our charging.  

 

  • Our fee structure is fully inclusive of all meals, drinks and snacks. These meals are cooked by our qualified chef in the nursery kitchen, catering to dietary needs.

 

  • Our fees do not include outings, celebrations or entertainment that is in addition to our usual session activities. However, children are often given the opportunity to go on local outings which are free.

 

  • We are open for approximately 49 weeks of the year in our Main Nursery (with closures at Christmas and at the end of August/beginning of September for essential cleaning and maintenance) and for 38 weeks per year in our term time only Little Nursery.  

 

  • We are closed for Bank Holidays.
