At Circus Day Nursery we offer an inclusive price for all age groups, which means there are no hidden surprises for you on your invoice. Our fees cover all snacks, meals, nappies, assessories, disposal and baby formula milk. (The only exception is when parents are in receipt of Government Free funding for 2, 3 and 4 year olds. This funding covers only basic childcare costs, so additional drinks, snacks, food, nappies and accessories etc will be charged as extra during your ‘free funded’ period only.) Our pricing structure is defined, offering part time and full time sessions, with the full daily rate discounted and weekly rate discounted even further.
A one off registration fee of £50.00 per child applies, to cover all administration and paperwork associated with new starters.

We accept most childcare vouchers from employers who offer this benefit to their eligible employees as an e-voucher. Vouchers are non-taxable and exempt from NI contributions for employees, whilst offering NI savings for employers. Both parents are eligible to claim as long as they are both in employment. Further information can be found at www.childcarevouchers.co.uk
Tax credits are available from HM Revenue and Customs, based on household circumstances. You may be able to access help with the cost of ‘Ofsted approved’ childcare, if you are working for a minimum of 16 hours per week. Check on-line at https://www.gov.uk/browse/benefits/tax-credits for further information and eligibility.
Free Government funding
The government funds local authorties to offer early education places free for 2 year olds (subject to certain criteria) and for 3/4 year olds in settings inspected by Ofsted. Circus Day Nursery is part of this scheme and will receive a basic amount per hour for your child up to a maximum of 15 hours per week. Three year old children will receive the eligible grant funding following the first term after their third birthday. This scheme is outside of Circus Day Nursery pricing strategy, and is not all inclusive. (This funding covers basic childcare, and does not include consumables such as drinks, snacks, food, nappies, accessories etc) You will receive further information from the setting when you meet with us. Two year old funding is applied for through Gloucester County Council as this is subject to individual criteria. http://www.gloucestershire.gov.uk/Achieving-2-Year-Olds
