FULL TIME OR TERM TIME OR HOLIDAY TIME
We've got you covered
If you work full time and would like us to look after your little owls for 48 weeks of the year, no problem. If you relish the summer holidays with your family and want term-time only, no problem. Or if you need childcare in the holidays only, again, that's no problem. We understand that every family and their childcare needs are unique. We will, from August 2020 be offering 1140 funded places for all 3-5 year olds and eligible 2 year olds. You can choose to have use your hours solely at Wise Owls Nursery or use them in a combination with Wise Owls and other nurseries.
HALF DAY SESSION
These 4hr45min sessions are the perfect length for parents wanting to return to work and fit nicely into the 1140 hour 48 week model of 23 hours and 45 minutes a week. You could have 5 of these sessions funded a week. Each session includes a cooked meal, fruit and snacks.
FULL DAY SESSION
A full day session runs from 8am-5.30pm and includes lunch and dinner all freshly prepared on site, using recommendations from the government's "Setting the Table" guidelines.
Full time attendance attracts a 5% discount.

Breakfast (must arrive by 8am) £1.50
From 7.30am drop-off 9am
3pm pick up until 6pm (flexible hours)
* Please note that we cannot take your children to other clubs and activities as we run our own activities at Wise Owls.
ADDITIONAL TIME (WHEN AVAILABLE)
£6.50 per hour
We understand that sometimes you need an extra hour here or there. Or maybe you'd like to drop your child in earlier before work.
Or perhaps you have a 2 year old who would benefit from dropping in for shorter sessions.
These hours are for you. However, we can only accommodate this if we keep in ratio, so this is on an as available basis.
We can extend our day from 7.30am to 6pm by special arrangement.
for school aged children
We are closed over the Winter Holidays but run holiday clubs for all primary aged children, as follows. We'll offer a range of themes to be decided closer to the time and in consultation with the children themselves.
Holiday Club AM (9am-12.30pm) £16.50
Holiday Club PM (1pm-4.30pm) £16.50
Holiday Club Full Day (9am-5pm) £28.00
1140 hours for 3-5s and eligible 2 year olds
You can use your funded childcare at Wise Owls or at a combination of Wise Owls and another nursery or childminder. There are no charges for funded children (e.g. registration fee or deposit.)
Children who have been attending Wise Owls privately will get priority for our much-sought-after places.
After that, they will be on a first come first served basis and if we do not have the hours you require, we may be able to offer alternative hours or place you on the waiting list until a space is available.
We keep our numbers to 12 children to allow for high adult:child ratios and so that we can follow each child's individual interests and needs.
