Early Education Funding

We offer 2, 3 and 4 year old funding subject to eligibility. You may also be eligible for tax free childcare giving you a substantial saving on your monthly fees.


Fee Payments

We accept fee payments by Standing order, tax free childcare, employer vouchers and early education funding.

Your fees are calculated by weekly amount multiplied by 51 ( weeks) and divided by 12 months to get a set monthly amount to pay.

Payment terms:

  • all fees are due monthly in advance, prior to the start of month. 

  • Invoices for the next month are sent out via Famly. 

  • Standing Order: when your child joins the nursery you will be asked to fill in a Standing Order mandate. This means that payments are made on our payment due date each month. This gives you peace of mind that fees are taken care of automatically.

  • Childcare vouchers: we happily accept childcare vouchers from all registered voucher providers.


Help With The Cost Of Childcare

Help is available for all families towards the costs of childcare, these vary depending on the age of your child.


From Birth

There is a tax-free childcare scheme run by the Government, available for all families with children under the age of 12. For every £8 you pay into an online account, the government will add an extra £2, up to £2,000 per child per year.

You can then pay nursery invoices directly from this online account. More information about this and how to apply are available at


For Some Children Age 2

Families receiving some form of support (such as Job Seekers Allowance or Universal Credit) or if a child has a disability, they may be entitled to 15 hours of funded nursery time once your child is 2.

As Little Peanuts is open all year, we stretch this funding so that you can receive 11 hours a week across the whole year.  If you think that you are eligible, or you can contact Family Information Service


Early Education Funding

All children qualify for 15 hours of funded term time childcare from the term following their third birthday. As we are open all year, we stretch this funding so that you can receive 11 hours a week across the whole year.

Children who live in a household where all the adults work often qualify for an additional 15 hours of funded hours. Therefore, many three and four year olds will have 30 hours funded childcare during term time, which is stretched across the whole year. To find out whether you are entitled to claim the additional 15 hours funding and to receive your funding code, visit





Famly App

Communication is key in any relationship, and none more so than the relationship you have with your child's nursery school. At The Old School House Nursery we use the most up to date Nursery Management Software to improve communication and enhance the nursery experience for you. 



Welcome to Famly

Welcome to Famly
Famly is a digital platform that provides us with an all-in-one solution for communication, learning journals, and invoicing. 
Parents are able to use Famly anywhere across all devices, free of charge. 
The app runs on computer, tablets and smartphones.


Parents can:

  • Stay informed of your child's learning and development through their online learning journal.

  • Receive and send private messages to teachers and management safely and securely

  • Report sick days and holiday to the nursery with one click

  • Get an overview of all events in their personal calendar

  • See photos and videos of their children's day in the newsfeed 

  • Get status updates and receive important reminders

  • Communicate with other parents

  • View their child's sessions and invoices


Learning Journals

Every child has their own online learning journal which acts as a record of their learning and development at the nursery school.  

Group leaders write personalised observations over the course of the year which focus on different aspects of the child's learning.  

These observations can include photos and videos of the child and are sent directly to parents on the day they happen.

Parents can grant access to other family members, like Grandparents, to view their child's learning journey on the app.


Instant Messaging

Instant Messaging
Parents are able to send direct messages to staff, management and other parents at the click of a button.  
This is a great resource for us when children are new to the nursery as our teachers can send reassuring messages to anxious parents.
It is more effective then sending emails or calling the nursery as the message goes directly to your child's educator for them to respond to.
Parents can also contact other parents at the nursery; perfect for arranging play dates with their child's friends.


Up To Date Information

Up To Date Information
It is essential that the nursery has the most up to date information relating to your child's health, dietary needs and permissions amongst other things.
Our app allows you to inform us if your child has any health issues which we need to be aware of such as allergies or medical conditions. This can be updated at any time through the app.
Our Educators are able to access this information in real time, using it to support them at meals and other times it may be relevant.

Sleeping Newborn


The Famly App puts parent's in control of their childcare costs by allowing you to see your current balance, a list of invoices and payments, as well as other invoice recipients.
Fees are charged on a termly basis but we do offer monthly instalments to parents booking full year plans.
Extended sessions can be booked as part of your child's plan or on an ad hoc basis and are displayed on the balance tab on the app.
