Fees & Help With Finances

Affordable childcare, funding friendly

What Makes Us Affordable?

At Horizon Childcare our hourly booking structure means that you only pay for the childcare you really need. Having looked at many of our competitors’ fees this makes us largely more affordable on the whole AND promotes family time!

We also reduce our fees as children grow and legal ratios change, which means your childcare with us gets cheaper over time.

We also offer both all-year-round and term-time bookings based on your needs. As well as that we give discounts for holidays, bank holidays and for referring new families.


Funded Childcare

Our nursery welcomes all children and can cater for 2, 3 and 4 year olds in receipt of government funding. We can offer 30 hours funding for 3 and 4 year olds eligible for the extended entitlement and provide flexible, hourly booking patterns for a family-friendly approach. We can offer both term-time only and stretched funding models to cater to your family needs.

If you child is eligible for 2,3 or 4 year old funding, please download the funding form, fill it in and email it to us at

Some families may be entitled to funding for 2 year-olds. This is based on individual family circumstances and needs to be applied for on an individual basis.
