Fees

We charge our fees on the 1st of every month as 1/12 of the annual charge for all year round provision. This keeps our finances and your budgets simple.  An increase to the fees should be expected each September and is likely to be in line with inflation.  Our terms and conditions are given as part of the registration process and are available on the registration form and parent handbook. 

A £50 administration charge is required alongside your registration form to secure a space at NOA's Ark.

 Registration process

  • Registration form received, filled in and sent to nursery with the non-refundable £50 admin fee.

  • Letter sent to parent regarding space including child details forms to fill in along with settling in dates.

  • Forms returned to nursery and settling in dates confirmed.

  • Child attends settling in session.

  • Child starts nursery.

  • Invoice created and further invoices sent to be paid by 1st of the month.

 Settling in sessions

  • First Session: 9:30-11:30

  • Second session: 9:30-12:30

A minimum of two settling in sessions must be taken in order to aid the settling in process.  We suggest that for the first week the child attends nursery that the parent/carer is able to give the child shorter sessions if possible and is available to pick up early to aid the settling in process.
