Nursery Info & Fees

Age of admittance

First Steps Kindergarten is divided into four units:

  1. The nursery caters for children aged 6 weeks to rising 2 years old (this is split into babies and toddlers)
  2. Tweenies caters for children rising 2 years to rising 3 years old.
  3. The early years caters for children rising 3 to rising 5 years old.

Early Years / Pre-school fees are covered by a separate contract to take account of Government-funded hours.

All placements are tailored to individual needs and therefore cost is worked out accordingly and will be given on application. Fees are collected monthly and are calculated over 50 weeks allowing for the week we are closed and two weeks at half fees. All other times are paid for.
