Fees and Opening Hours

 

Opening Hours

Our nursery day runs from 8am through to 6pm.
Each of our nurseries are open all year, with the exception of Christmas Day, Boxing Day, New Years Day and the 2nd January. If any of these days fall on a weekend, the holiday will roll over to the next working day.

Fees

Fee Calculation
Fees are calculated on a 52-week year basis and are paid in advance by Standing Order, Credit/Debit Card and/or Childcare Vouchers on the 1st of the month for the month ahead.

Waiting List Deposit
A £50 deposit is required in order to be placed on our waiting list. This deposit will be refunded should we not be able to offer your child a placement in your requested nursery.

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.

Extra Sessions
All extra sessions should be agreed in advance with a staff member from our Head Office in 10 Walker Street and paid for at the time of booking. Please note we accept credit/debit cards. Payments can also be made on our Mobile App.

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

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.

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.
