Nursery Hours

We are open from 8:00 am to 5:30 pm; however, we are happy to discuss early and late care. This should be arranged through administration only. Your child’s attendance can be from 7:30 am to 6:00 pm with a prior arrangement. There is NO charge for this service. A skeleton staff is organised on a rota basis to cover the extended hours. (For those accessing free funding through 1140 hours through the 50-week model, you are entitled to 22.8 hrs of funding per week. At Great Western we allocate an additional 2.2 hours per week giving you a yearly total of 1250 free hours
of funding.)

Nursery Fees will be calculated on the basis of a 50 week year

Fees will be due monthly in advance based on a 50-week year and payable no later than the First of the Month. A 2 percent charge will be made for fees not paid by this time.

Sibling Discount

A 10% Discount will be given to the younger sibling of a child attending nursery.

Booking Sessions for Nursery

It is the responsibility of the parent to submit an application or change of sessions request form to the manager or administrator of the relevant nursery. Only requests of this type will be accepted into the waiting list. Allocation of sessions will be given on a first-come, first-served basis with the following priority, (1) child attending, (2) siblings and (3) full-time spaces. Priority is given to families who require the greater number of sessions. (4) New applicants. If a space is available upon application, the child is given the required sessions immediately. If the sessions are not available, the child is placed on a waiting list and offered the spaces when available. There is a three-session minimum requirement for all applicants who must include a Monday or a Friday if available. A session is defined as a morning or afternoon. A full day would be two sessions. A retainer will be paid when sessions are confirmed. This will be deducted from the first invoice and is not refundable if the space is cancelled.
