Children can join the nursery in the September following their second birthday.  

We aim to support parents by offering flexibility in our fee structure.  We offer half day or full day sessions together with wrap around care to ensure that you only pay for the childcare that you need.  

Fees are charged on a termly basis.  During the holiday period we run a Holiday Club exclusively for Mount Carmel children.

We accept all providers of childcare vouchers.

The nursery is run from two locations which offers different sessions for parents. Please see the tables below for more information.

Kinder Lodge

Early Years Entitlement Funding

All children over three years old receive the Early Years Entitlement funding. For private places, this effectively reduces the overall cost of the session. All parents are entitled to 15 hours funding and eligible parents can claim 30 hours per week during the term time. For some parents it is beneficial to spread the funding over the course of the year (48 weeks) instead of using it only in the term time.  As a result, there are dozens of combinations which take into account how many sessions you use per week, the type of session and how many hours you are entitled to.  We work with parents to ensure they use their entitlement in the most cost effective way to them.
