How to find us
We welcome and encourage ongoing feedback from all parents whose children attend Windmill Day Nursery. In addition we conduct an anonymous annual survey amongst our parents to look at what we are doing well and what, if anything, we can do differently. You can view feedback by clicking here

Up to 10 days’ annual holiday (pro rata for children not attending full time), can be taken at ½ the normal fee rate, provided that parents have advised the nursery manager in writing before the 25th of the preceding month.

Late Fee Charge

Any child not collected by the end of their session time will incur a charge of £10.00 per ¼ hour (e.g. 1–15 minutes late = £10.00 and 15–30 minutes late = £20 etc.)

Early Drop-off facility

The nursery is open at 7.30am for parents wishing to bring their children into nursery before 8.00am. There is an extra charge of £3.50 per day for this facility, which needs to be booked in advance.


You will be invoiced monthly, in advance, for your child’s fees. Payment in full is required by the 10th day of the month. Any unpaid fees will incur additional charges.

A £20.00 non-refundable, registration/admin fee is payable and a holding fee of £100 will also be charged when the application for a place is made.
