Holiday Dates

To ensure continuity of care for all the children and so that supply staff are not needed periodically throughout the year, the nursery staff have the same set holiday dates for annual leave. Payment is required for the statutory holidays therefore, fees are only payable for 48 weeks of the year and not 52 weeks!
