How Much Does Nursery Cost Gillingham?

Nursery and Childcare services across Gillingham and Kent have a wide range of rates and fees. While others schools may be offering higher rates, here you’ll find childcare prices that are affordable and reasonable. And yet, the quality of care remains excellent – and personal, as you only get from a family-owned school.

What is Included?

Our fees are inclusive of all drinks and snacks except for midday meal (see the section below on Zebeddees Catering for that). 

We are open for 52 weeks a year, closing on Bank Holidays. If your child’s session falls on a Bank Holiday, we still charge for these. However, unlike most other nurseries we do allow swaps subject to availability. 

Our fees do not include any outings, celebrations or entertainment that is in addition to our usual session activities.

Our fees are charged on an average, this is calculated by the number of sessions you do at the price of the session (see below for details), multiplied by 52 weeks and divided by 12 months. 

What If I Want Meals Included?

We offer Zebedees Lunchbox catering services.

All of the dishes are made to order and contain only the highest quality, fresh ingredients. We make sure that all of the menus provide all of the main food groups and fulfil the nutritional needs of developing children.

This works out at £15.17/month, per session attended. Contact us if you would like to add this to your child’s care.

Where Do The Fees Go?

Happy Bunnies Nursery is worth your investment. Parents are investing in the best childcare; therefore, we invest in the only top and exceptional teachers.

Tommy has been at Happy Bunnies for the past 2 and a half years. He has come on leaps and bounds in every aspect and is a happy and confident little boy. I cannot fault the nursery in any way, the ladies are so helpful and nothing is too much trouble. As a shift worker, I have previously had to make last minute changes to days and this is always accommodated where possible. Thankyou, two very happy parents!

My now 2 year old daughter has been going to the nursery in Gillingham since Feb 2011 and my partner and I couldn't ask for any more!! Her development and social skills are amazing. She talks at the rate of a 3 year old and that's because the people at [Happy Bunnies] actually care about the children's education not about making money!

Mia has been at this nursery since she was 8 months old, she will be 3 in July and I can honestly say I have no regrets about putting her into happy bunnies. She absolutely loves it here and all the staff! She loves to learn and sing all the nursery rhymes she has learnt over time. A special thank you to (Jackie Numps) as Mia likes to call her for teaching Mia about the fossils and museums....the children need more of this type of learning

What Does Daycare Cost Near Me?

This is understandably one of the most common questions you’ll have when researching preschool education for your kids.

Since our rates are competitive, the prices mentioned above are a good representation of typical preschool costs in the Gillingham area.

One thing to bear in mind if your schedule can vary, we offer you the option to swap sessions at no cost to you. That’s something very few nurseries can match.

If you live outside Gillingham (even within Medway), rates can vary significantly, so contact a nearby nursery for more details. Look for one that has a lot of positive feedback on social media, as this will give you a better idea – it’s pointless to look up the cost of basic daycare when you need quality preschool prices.

Assessing the Cost of Child Care in Medway and Kent

Social Interration, Structure and Learning for Them

Nursery Cost GillinghamPreschool is a major financial commitment. Childcare expenses can sometimes equal one parent’s income in the early years.

When looking at the actual rates you’ll pay, there are a few things to keep in mind. For one thing, while it’s wonderful for small children to spend time with their parents, it’s also important that they learn and socialize with other infants.

Secondly, children need stability and a combination of educational and social activities. It takes years to develop these services. The right preschool has high rates for a reason: they have excellent preparation and services for your child!0

A Well-Earned Break for You

120998393 10160237625767437 306295523666952236 nAs wonderful as it is to teach children yourself, it is beneficial to both of you to take a break now and then. And if you are a full-time stay-at-home mum, scheduling a few sessions at a good local school not only allows your children to learn and socialize with their peers but also allows you to relax.

We have a few parents who can afford to have their children brought to our school by their private nanny because they recognize the importance of a structured atmosphere and interaction with other children.
