Nursery Fees

Securing your place

When you have made a decision about booking a place for your child at the Mere Nursery, please contact us with your requested booking pattern and sessions to check availability. We sometimes operate a waiting list for specific days which can change throughout the year, so it is important to let us know about your requirements as soon as possible.

When your place is confirmed, the process of arranging visits and getting to know as much as possible about you and your child to help with a smooth settling-in will begin a few weeks before your child’s start date.
