Registration and Fees

Online Registration Form

The Nursery is extremely popular, and there is a waiting list for places in many age groups. We recommend that you register as early as possible; a year in advance for places for babies seems a long time but can be necessary to ensure availability of the attendance pattern you need.

To enrol your child in Fairstead House Nursery, please complete the registration form online through the link on the left, and pay the non-refundable registration fee of £100. Please note that registration does not guarantee your child a place in the Nursery, but if we are unable to place your child, the registration fee will be returned.

An Acceptance Deposit payment equivalent to the Nursery fees for four weeks’ booked Nursery sessions for your child or £600, whichever is the greater, will be required to secure your child’s place. You will be sent an invoice six months prior to your child’s start date (or immediately upon signing the Acceptance paperwork if within six months of the start date).  The Acceptance deposit will be retained and returned to you when your child has left Fairstead House Nursery/School, minus any outstanding sums.

For all Admissions enquiries, please contact registrar@fairsteadhouse.co.uk

We are part of the Suffolk Early Years Funding Scheme. Parents may claim 15 funded hours from the term after their child turns 3 years old until the term after the child’s fifth birthday.  This funding is available during afternoon sessions (12.30pm – 3.30pm) in Fairstead House’s term time only.  We do not accept funding for 2 year old children or the weekly 30 hours funding.

Term time only places are available and will follow Fairstead House School’s term times; the place is for 34 weeks per year. Additional sessions may be booked in during holiday times if available.  A 10% discount is available if your child is booked in for five full days a week in all year round care. 

We have minimum session requirements of two school days a week for children in Foals 1 and 2 Rooms, and three sessions a week for children in Yearlings, Ponies 1 and 2 Rooms.

These fees are inclusive of wipes, drinks, snacks and meals as listed above but they do not include nappies or formula milk. Please provide these for your child if necessary.

Please note that additional charges will apply if you are late in collecting your child. If you are late collecting from a School Day session, then you will be charged for a Full Day. If you collect your child after 6.00pm, then you will be charged £1.00 per minute for the first ten minutes and £5.00 per minute thereafter.

Please also note that children who are registered for a School Day or School Morning who arrive before 8.30am will be charged for the Breakfast Hour.
