Fees & Funding

At Little Lionhearts, we aim to bring you the best quality care at an affordable price. That’s why we want to keep our fees as simple as possible. Once your child is registered with us, our all-inclusive fees cover breakfast, morning snacks, hot lunch, afternoon tea, drinks and nappies, leaving you with peace of mind. The only additional fees are extra sessions, special events and school trips.

We are a year-round nursery school, operating 51 weeks a year except for bank holidays. We are closed for 3 staff inset days per year and 1 week between Christmas and New Year. Therefore, our fees are calculated by taking the child’s weekly attendance fee and multiplying it by 50.4 (weeks of the year), then dividing by 12 to give an evenly divided monthly payment.

  • Full-day childcare is from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm.
  • The morning session is from 8:00 am to 1 pm.
  • The afternoon session is from 1 pm to 6 pm.
  • Early start from 7:30 am is available
