Sessions and Fees
Our hours of opening are as follows
We currently run 9 sessions of nursery in a week. Sessions are open to children 2yrs 9months up to school age, with a service also available to eligible 2yr olds.
Children are entitled to 5 funded sessions from Dumfries and Galloway council from the first term after the child’s 3rd birthday. Spaces are allocated with priority being given to children in their pre-school year.
Although it is recommended that only one pre-school centre is used for your child’s early learning and childcare experiences, the Council recognises that this is not always possible.
A child’s funded places can therefore be split between two nursery providers if necessary, with a minimum of two sessions being taken up in each setting.
Your child can attend for two sessions in one day and we are able to provide lunchtime supervision. Parents should provide a packed lunch for their child and include an ice pack.
Please note….costs will only be incurred if your child’s lunch time care puts them over their allocated funded allowance. You will be sent an invoice if this applies to you. Please speak to the manager or administrator if you wish to discuss this further.
Nursery currently charge a set fee for unfunded sessions i.e. before your child is eligible for funding. This fee is reviewed annually. Please contact our administrator for current charges.
Fees will be invoiced monthly in advance. NB: Charges will still be incurred if your child does not attend his/her session. We have a small daily charge which is a contribution towards your child’s snack.
