Three and four year olds can claim their 15 funded hours at Meoncross from the term after their third birthday. Hours in addition to the 15 funded hours are charged at the advertised rate. Unfortunately, we do not offer 30 funded hours.

Early Years funding can be claimed against all the hours the Nursery is open, from 8.40am – 3.40pm.

The am and pm core sessions include Ballet, French, Music, PE and Beach School taught by qualified teachers/specialist staff. There is an enhanced provision charge of £2.80 for every funded hour claimed by children eligible for the EYE Grant during these core sessions.

Check availability and book nursery sessions by contacting the Admission team: or 01329 666017.

In addition we offer a FREE PLAY Early Years Foundation Stage session Monday to Friday between 2pm – 4pm. This session does not provide any enhanced specialist teaching and is only available to those children claiming their fifteen free hours who are not attending at any other times of the day. Children who attend the FREE PLAY Early Years Foundation Stage session are not subject to any additional charges, deposits or fees.

Fees are subject to an annual review, which usually takes place in April. The new academic year’s fees will be published on this webpage during the Summer Term.

Seahorses – we require your child to join us for a minimum of three sessions per week, to enable them to settle and take full advantage of the nursery curriculum.

We accept a wide range of childcare vouchers which can be used to pay for any nursery sessions.
