Services and Fees

Montessori Garden Nursery School provides reliable childcare from 8.00am to 6.00pm Monday to Friday 50 weeks of the years, except for closures over five (5) INSET days a year, all Bank Holidays and two weeks at Christmas and Summer. There is flexibility to choose from 2** to 5 full days a week as well as auxiliary services. 

All tenure fees are paid monthly in advance by Standing Order on the 1st of each month (all our fees are annualized and divided into 12 equal monthly installments and the monthly fees are not pro-rated, except at the start due to free settling in sessions, to simplify admin and save related costs).

**Funded places for 3 & 4 year olds are available pls contact us for details. Subject to availability, State Funded Parents relying on funded only places can access 1 full day a week, no registration fee and £50 deposit. Please note we do NOT offer 30hr funding or 2yo funding (the main reason we are not offering them is that the rate we receive from the local authority is lower than the rate it costs us to provide care and to process it, inflation and labour costs continue to rise while funding remains fixed).
