As part of our settling in period we offer complimentary short stay visits, which are important for you as parents and especially your child.
Once your place has been booked, with a returned enrolment form and £40.00 non-refundable deposit (to cover administration costs) arrangements can be made to commence your complimentary visits.
We are open between the hours of 7.30am and 6.00pm Monday to Friday. We close over the Christmas period in addition to Bank Holiday’s.
All children are to be provided with a change of clothing in a drawstring bag which are clearly labelled with your child’s name. We ask for all children not to bring any valuables into nursery in case of any loss.
Fees and Additions
Nursery fees are revised annually in accordance with cost of living and annual increases. Payment is payable by the 7th of the month in full by cash or childcare vouchers. To maintain your child’s place fees are payable regardless of absence, illness or holidays. This is standard industry practice. One months written notice is required if you intend to withdraw or reduce your days at Sunflowers. Extra sessions are available on request, please see the setting manager. Admission to nursery will be refused if fees are paid late or in arrears.
Each child has their own designated member of staff within each room (key person) who updates their development profile (learning journey) and who will care for your child along with all practitioners. This person will be introduced on commencement.
