Small Fries Day Nursery


We accept free Early Education funding entitlement and salary sacrifice schemes such as Tax-Free Childcare and Childcare vouchers. Fees for your child's care are to be paid monthly and in advance. Payments by Bank Transfer, Credit/Debit Card or Cash are accepted.

We are open for childcare 51 weeks of the year, closing only for Bank Holidays and the festive week of Christmas and New Year. We do not charge fees for the festive week of Christmas, but no allowance is made for other Holidays.

Our charges include nutritional meals and healthy snacks for your child, formula milk and cow’s milk, plus refreshments as shown in our seasonal menu – we ask that families provide nappies, wipes and breast milk.

The Government provides many schemes available to support families pay for childcare – see website to see which scheme you are eligible.
