About Funding

Free Early Learning and Childcare
All 3 and 4 years olds, and some 2 year olds, are entitled to funded childcare and early learning to ensure all children can enjoy the benefits of a quality pre-school experience. Early Days Nurseries is a selected partnership provider of this service, working closely with the Scottish Government to provide all eligible free early learning and childcare.

Childcare Vouchers
Childcare Vouchers are a government backed scheme designed to help working parents afford quality childcare. If your employer subscribes to a scheme, you can receive childcare vouchers from them, free of tax and National Insurance contributions. We welcome Childcare Vouchers from all reputable providers at Early Days Nurseries and would be delighted to discuss this with you if you have any queries.

Fee Calculation

Fees are calculated on a 52 week year basis and are paid in advance by Standing Order on the 1st of the month for the month ahead.

Waiting List Deposit

A £50 deposit is required to be placed on our waiting list. This is only refunded should we not be able to meet your requirements.

Retainer Deposit

A deposit of two week's fees is requested along with your first month’s fee note. We shall retain this for the duration of your child's attendance. This deposit will be deducted from your child's final nursery payment.

Pre-School Partnership Grant

Our nursery is a Partnership Nursery with the City of Edinburgh Council and as such parents will be awarded a grant towards a proportionate number of hours for any child in the term after their third birthday. This does not apply if the child also attends a Council nursery elsewhere.

Siblings

Parents with 2 or more children attending the nursery will receive a discount at the owner’s discretion.
