Fees and Structure of costs 

At First Steps, we like to be open about our fees and how they are structured.

From Jan 2021, our daily fees will be £52 per day and half days are charged at £30 per session.

A full day consists of: 7am – 6pm.

A half day can be taken morning or afternoon at the following times:

  • Morning: 7am to 12.45pm.
  • Afternoon: 1:15 pm to 6pm

To calculate monthly fees simply add the number of half days or full days to give a weekly cost, multiply by 51 weeks and divide by 12.

When parents are claiming nursery funding (15 or 30 hours) they will only be charged for services not covered by the funding i.e. additional hours, meals, snacks and consumables.

Additional hours are possible on a case by case basis, just speak to Ian.

Meals, snacks and consumables cost £8.50 per day when paid separately.
