Priority is given to those families requiring all year-round care and full days (8am – 6pm), then to those requiring half day sessions (8am to 12:45pm or 1pm to 6pm). The only exception will be sibling links, when the continuation of the older child at nursery is dependent upon the younger sibling gaining a place. Full days (8am to 6pm) and half days (8am to 12:45pm or 1pm to 6pm) are the only sessions offered by the nursery.
In the event of oversubscription, a waiting list will be kept and dealt with in date order using the above criteria. In order to be put on the waiting list parents will have to fill out a Registration form and pay a non-refundable Registration fee (refer to Fee Information further on).
Please note the minimum booking is either two half days or one full day.
A non-refundable Administration Fee of £65 is payable at the time of enrolment and this includes up to three introductory settling-in sessions and an Angels Nursery kit bag. There is also a fully-refundable Deposit of £75 payable which is returned upon your child leaving the nursery. If a child is withdrawn once a Registration Fee has been paid this will unfortunately not be refunded as per our Terms and Conditions. Please click here to see our T&C's.
One month’s written notice is required should you wish to terminate your child’s attendance and fees are due and payable during this period even if you withdraw your child at an earlier date.
We provide morning , afternoon or full day sessions. The price is inclusive of all meals and specialist activities such as gym skills, dance and music lessons. Please contact us and we would be happy to discuss our range of fees.
The government provide a grant, Early Years Education Funding, which is available the term after a child’s third birthday. As Angels Nursery is open all year round, we ‘stretch’ this funding over 51 weeks of the year (the nursery is closed Christmas week). All parents of 3 year olds are entitled to access 15 hour funding (Universal Entitlement) or dependent upon meeting certain criteria you may be entitled to claim 30 hour funding (Extended Entitlement). We have provided 15 Hour and 30 Hour Funding Fact Sheets below to help you further understand the process.
We regret that no reduction in fees can be made in the event of absence either for illness or holiday. Our preferred method of payment is via online banking, tax-free childcare or childcare vouchers.
At Angels we believe that it is very important for every child to have an opportunity to build a strong bond with one person within their new nursery environment. All children react differently to adapting to nursery life, having that one ‘key’ person as a secure base will help settle the child and their family into nursery. The child, once settled will build relationships with all practitioners. We assign a key person to every child initially however; if the child bonds with a different practitioner we will look at changing the key person to meet the needs of the child. The key person is responsible for the overall care needs of the child and their learning and development whilst they attend nursery.
One of our key priorities is to reassure parents that their child will be safe in our care. We operate a locked door policy and entrance can only be gained through a door which is opened and closed by a member of staff. We also have CCTV cameras installed to monitor activity within the nursery which further ensures the wellbeing of your children and safety of our staff.
Healthy eating and delicious food are extremely important to us. Our standards speak for themselves as we have been awarded a Northamptonshire Heartbeat Gold Award for Healthy Eating and hold a 5* Health Hygiene rating which we’re proud of.
All our meals are prepared from scratch by our in-house chef and cooked with as many vegetables and fresh fruit as we can fit in! We have a huge range of menus so your little “angels” can be exposed to a wide variety of food at an early age.
Weekly menus are available to parents.
We can accommodate children with food allergies and carry out any relevant risk assessment.
We can cater for specific dietary requirements.
We can accommodate breastfeeding mothers and store breast milk.
Weaning menus are planned weekly in accordance with your child’s requirements.

What a lovely nursery!
What a lovely nursery! From our initial visit to look around we felt very comfortable with the staff and our son was very happy. The staff are very welcoming and friendly and they seem to know your child. They deal with request or concerns quickly and are always happy to help. The nursery is very clean and our son loves the home cooked food. I would highly recommend Angels Nursery to other parents.
We are like a big extended family
I joined Angels as the manager in August 2018. I have a real passion for childcare and love exploring with the children and becoming facilitators in their learning which helps to provide them with amazing experiences and opportunities whilst in our care. I love being part of the Angels team, we become an extension of your family, and that is something we pride ourselves on. As well as being here for the children we are here to support our parents too. Angels is a great place to come to work and every day is different.
