At Walton Montessori, we try to keep the fees simple, which is why we have adopted the “all-inclusive approach”.
Our philosophy is to try to help to minimise the busy lives of parents, and therefore our fees are fully inclusive of all meals, drinks, formula milk and nappies.
We provide most things your child will need for their time at the nursery, the only things you need to provide are appropriate clothing including wellies for splashing in puddles on rainy days and sunhats to protect on sunny days, comforter (if required) and bag to keep spare clothes in.
To secure a child’s start date and sessions, a deposit of £400 is required. This sum is refunded in full providing that one calendar months’ notice in writing is given prior to the child leaving and that no additional payment or fees are outstanding. If the child does not attend the nursery once the place has been accepted the deposit is non-refundable.
Our fees are payable calendar monthly in advance by direct debit/bacs transfer or nursery voucher at the beginning of each month.
Our fees are calculated over 51 weeks then divided by 12 months. This consistent amount makes it easier for our parents to budget, as you will be paying the same amount each month.
The reason we multiply the weekly amount by 51 and not 52 is that we are closed for bank holidays and between Christmas and New Year, so you don’t pay for these closures.
If a sibling of an existing child joins the nursery a discount of 10% is given on the fees of the first (eldest) for each day attending.
There are many sources of financial assistance with nursery fees such as 30 hours funding for 3 to 4 years olds and 15 hours funding for 3 years to 5 years.
If you are paying by voucher then please let us know the company you are using and ensure that your child’s full name is used as the reference when the payment is made and please make sure to pay by 25th of every month, we accept all major vouchers. If the voucher does not cover the entire fee, then any balance will be collected by direct debit. Please remember that both parents are entitled to claim nursery vouchers through there employers..
