Nursery fees 

The Committee of Rickmansworth Nursery School may increase the fees at the beginning of the school year each September. The current hourly rate is £8.49 for 2 year olds and £7.50 for 3 and 4 year olds.


All children who are over three qualify for the Government funding of 15 hours free each nursery week. This funding becomes available in the term after the child’s 3rd birthday. Children born in April qualify in the September after they turn three.

The funded 15 hours can be made up from half days, full days and mornings plus the lunch hour.   Any extra hours will be charged at the following rates:

· Fee per 3 hour session = £22.50 (£7.50 per hour).

Additional funding (30 hour free childcare)

You need to apply for these additional hours the term before the funding starts.  click here

Hertfordshire County Council offer 15 additional funded hours to eligible families. To see if this applies to you please look at their website for the current eligibility criteria. You will be advised on how to apply for this extra funding. We are able to offer up to 12 of the 15 hours to eligible families.
