The nursery closes for 3 staff inset days per year, as well as on bank holidays and for 1 week between Christmas and New Year. The inset days and Christmas break are not charged. Bank holidays are charged at normal rates. 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.
