For full details of the nursery fees please see the current fees sheets above and Nursery Fees Policy below.

Details of how we offer the 30 hours free childcare are shown on the fees sheets. More information on eligibility and how to apply is available on the Childcare Choices website.
Fees are calculated on a monthly basis and the same fee is payable each month throughout the year. For full time attendance there is a monthly fee that is a reduction on the daily rate. For part time attendance the monthly fees are calculated as follows; daily rate times by number of days/sessions attended in a week times by 51 (weeks that the nursery is open for) and divided by twelve.
If a child joins or leaves the nursery part way through a month the fees will be calculated using the daily rate.
The nursery fees are charged and paid in arrears and invoices are sent towards the end of each month. All fees are to be paid by the 10th of the following month at the latest.
Fees reduce after a child’s second and birthday and for the purpose of this calculation birthdays that fall between the 1st-15th day of the month will reduce in that month and birthdays that fall between the 16th-31st day of the month will reduce in the following month.
Upon being offered a place in a Berkshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust (BHFT) nursery you will be asked to pay a deposit equal to one month’s fees directly into our bank account or by credit/debit card. Please note that no part of the deposit can be paid by childcare voucher or Tax Free Childcare. Payment of the deposit will secure the place for your child and set up an account for future invoices.
BHFT staff on the BHFT rate are required to pay their fees by salary deduction, please complete the salary deduction form and return it to the Nursery Manager prior to you child joining the nursery. Fees may also be paid by childcare voucher or Tax Free Childcare.
All other fees must be paid for by standing order, online, by childcare voucher, by Tax Free Childcare or any other electronic method of payment. Prior to your child’s start date the Nursery Manager will inform you of the fees payable for the first month’s attendance as well as the usual monthly fees thereafter.
I want to take this opportunity to THANK Jack In The Box for my daughter P's improvement in communication and social skills in the last year.
Thank you to all the teachers who helped P.
I especially want to mention Maddy, Amnna, Rachel and Shahida.
All the staff in the Pre-School room did excellent work with P - Carly, Sepidah, Emma along with Rachel and Shahida . She is fond of all of them.
Maddy- she helped P to adjust in the Piglet room when P was struggling ....she started liking going to nursery. Maddy did an excellent job in calming P during crisis.
Amnna - helped P to adjust in the Pre-School room seamlessly. The first name that P said was Amnna ....P started drinking milk in school and started to stay for a longer period. P loved Amnna and when asked about her friend it's always Amnna. Amnna taught her how to behave with friends and not get angry.
Rachel - helped P in forming sentences, eating yoghurt, staying in nursery from 9am. She also attended sessions with me for Speech and Language. Taught her good habits of putting rubbish in the bin, saying please, excuse me etc. There was a huge improvement in her communication.
Shahida was her secondary key person and came up with the idea of the communication book so that P can talk about what happened in nursery, at home.
Lee, Richard and Joanna - thank you for addressing my concerns and talking to me, so that I am comfortable.
I am very happy with the overall support of Jack In The Box and will always be grateful for you helping P.
