Fees and Funding

We are a community nursery, so parents do not have to attend ACL to register with us.

Our childcare fees are low to enable you to take up the courses that ACL offer.

Fees are dependent on children’s age.

Parents can use their 15 hours FEEE funding for 2, 3 & 4 year olds. We also accept children for 30 hour FEEE funding and we are happy to share those hours with other settings/childminders.

Dependent on the course you take at ACL you may also be eligible for funding to pay for childcare costs.

“Children’s early literacy skills are effectively promoted…”

Children’s early literacy skills are effectively promoted; they are inquisitive and interested in learning how and why things work and are supported well by staff.

I live over 20 miles away and I will continue to send my children as long as practically possible. I cannot rate this nursery highly enough.
