We try to be as flexible as possible to fit around busy lives.
The facilities at Highwood Nursery are open from Monday to Friday 7:45am - 6:00pm. We are open 50 weeks of the year. We are closed on Bank Holidays and for two weeks over Christmas and the New Year usually linked with the Hampshire school holidays.
Sessions within the Nursery are booked on an hourly basis. However, we do require that your child attends a minimum of four hours per day and these sessions will need to be between 8:00am - 1:00pm or 1:00pm - 6:00pm.
Sessions within Preschool must be a minimum of four hours but additional hours can be extended to the afternoon eg 9:00am - 3:30pm, where bookings allow.
We offer a limited number of term time only spaces available in the Pre School only.
One month's written notice is required if you no longer wish your child to attend the Nursery, or if you need to change your child's hours. Occasional alterations can be made if staffing allows. This must be confirmed in advance with a senior member of staff. Hours must be adhered to due to required staffing ratios.
In the event of late arrival collecting your child, you will be charged for any extra time at your normal rate if it is before 6:00pm. After 6:00pm you will be charged £7.50 per half hour.
