At Clyde Nursery, currently we have had to close our waiting list as we have no availability. We have a non refundable deposit of £50 (refundable only if we cannot offer a place) to go onto our waiting list, however at this time we cannot guarantee spaces or when our waiting list will reopen.


Without the deposit, places are not secured or guaranteed. You can view our Admissions Policy on our Parent Policies page.  We recommend that you make an appointment to look around the Nursery to see what we can offer you and to discuss any questions you may have.

Once a place has been offered to your child we will arrange for a couple of settling in sessions to allow both you and your child to get used to Nursery life.

What are the session times?

  • Nursery Hours: Full Day Session 7.00am to 6.00pm

  • Half-Day Session: AM session 7.00am to 1.00pm, PM session 1.00pm to 6.00pm

  • Minimum booking: One full day or 2 half-day sessions

  • Registration Fee: £50.00

  • A discount of 10% is available where two or more siblings attend Nursery (applied to the oldest child)

  • Late payment fee Penalty £50.00

  • Late pick up penalty £6.00 per day

  • 4 weeks written notice must be given


How do I pay?

  • Fees are payable monthly in advance

  • Fees will be invoiced one week prior to the due date

  • Additional sessions used during the period will be invoiced in the following monthly invoice

  • Fees are charged across a 50-week year. Full fees are due whether your child attends Nursery or not and during periods when the Nursery is closed. Fees are reviewed twice per year.  The nursery will therefore be closed for 10 days each year.  For 2024/25 we will close 1pm on Good Friday 29th March 2024 and Easter Monday 1st April 2024 (re-opening Tue 2nd April 2024 at 7am), and 1pm on Christmas Eve Tuesday 24th December, re-opening Monday 6th January 2025 at 7am.

  • Early Learning Childcare Commissioned Education Places are given free at the point of delivery. Fees will be discounted accordingly

  • There is a non-returnable Registration Fee of £50.00. This covers the reservation of a place and any settling sessions

  • A Service charge will be applied to ELCC Funded sessions to cover extra activities that our older children take part in eg Forest Schools

  • You can apply for Tax Credit funding to help towards your fees.  Find more information about tax credits here 

  • If you are a Student you can apply for funding towards your fees from the College/University that you are attending.  There is also a Student Grant you may be eligible for  (please note that College/University funding does not normally cover the half term break in October, Christmas and Easter holidays - you will be liable to fund these weeks yourself).  Click here for more information.
