We like to keep things as simple as possible. This helps provide predictability and stability for families by avoiding confusing multi-tier fee structures and hidden costs. Charges are always for the month in advance and you will be invoiced monthly through our convenient ‘paperless’ system through the Famly app.

The fees include all meals, snacks, and drinks throughout the day, including milk formula. They also include nappies, wipes, and creams. There are no additional charges within the fees below. That includes various activities that take place at the nursery such as extra-curricular sessions, trips, and experience days. Its all-inclusive!

Funded & free childcare

The Government has a policy that children aged three and four are entitled to receive an amount of funded education. In some locations, this may extend to two-year-olds. We use the term ‘funding’ to describe these entitlements. Local authorities have an obligation to facilitate this and are responsible for ensuring that within their boundaries there are sufficient places available for children to access it. We are delighted to be able to support this at Monkey Puzzle Day Sidcup.

Free childcare only spaces are of limited availability and by application only, as detailed in our Admissions Policy. These sessions are held at the following times:

Under 2 year olds (3 months – 2 years) Over 2 year olds (2 – 5 years)
Full day TBC TBC
Session TBC TBC

You will be pleased to hear that we are eligible to receive government funding so children can have 15 hours FREE nursery education and care per week starting the term after their third birthday.

If you would like further details of how this scheme could be of benefit to you, please contact us.

Please note: Pre-school funded time will be deducted from the above and can be flexible to suit the needs of the parents.

We accept all major childcare vouchers, including Sodexho, Computershare & Accor.
