  1. Early Years Free Entitlement (EYF): Funded hours are subject to entitlement. Extended Free Entitlement must be applied for by the parents, and an eligibility code provided to the school.  Failure to provide an eligibility code will result in the full fee becoming payable. Where applicable, funding is applied evenly during the Burgess Hill School terms, which amount to 34 weeks during the academic year 17-18. Funding is also applied pro-rata depending on the number of days per week that the child attends. The school reserves the right to withdraw from EYF funding at any point and without notice, at which point the full fee will become payable.
  2. Universal EYF 15 hours is only applicable to children attending Full or School days. Extended Free Entitlement is only applicable to eligible children who attend Full days.
  3. At least two months notice of cancellation or reduction of current sessions must be received in writing.
  4. For children attending a full day, arrangements may be made to drop off at 7.30am and/or to collect at 6.30pm by prior arrangement only. This may be ad-hoc or a permanent arrangement. There is a charge of £10 per half-hour per day for this service.
  5. Unplanned early drop off or late collection of a child will incur a charge of £15 per 15 minutes or part there-of.
  6. For children attending term-time only, term dates are in line with Burgess Hill Girls. Please see here for the latest information.
  7. For children attending year-round, fees are charged in three ‘termly’ instalments, each nominally equating to 17 weeks (1st September to 31st December, 1st January to 30th April and 1st May to 31st August).
  8. The Nursery is closed to all children for weekends and bank holidays and dates between Christmas and New Year. Parents will be informed about specific closure dates on an annual basis.
  9. Example fee calculations:                                                                                                                              Child attends year-round two full days per week, 15 hours funding:                                                              Fee = £825 * 2 = £1,650 per term, or £4,950 annually

Child attends term-time only, four school days per week, no funding:                                                                Fee = £480 * 4 = £1,920 per term, or £5,760 annually

Burgess Hill Nursery Review Beatrice

“I could not be happier with Burgess Hill Nursery. The staff are consistent, caring and focused on providing children with the best possible learning environment. Beatrice talks of wonderful experiences and we have seen her progress with her writing, numbers and knowledge. I love the creative approach the preschool uses to help children learn including their social and emotional development. Beatrice loves her preschool and tells us it’s lots of fun. I will be sad when it’s her time to leave, but confident she’ll be ready for the next stage in her education.”
