Opening Times & Fees

The nursery is open five days a week for 51 weeks of the year from 8.00am to 6.00pm (longer hours available on request). However, we are closed on Bank holidays, between Christmas and New Year, and 1 day during the summer for our annual outing.

The nursery may also be closed in severe weather conditions to ensure the safety of the children, parents, carers and staff (fee refunds will not be given).

Parents are asked to check the KCC website at www.kent.gov.uk for updated information/confirmation of any such closures.

There are both full-time and part-time places available, details of which can be obtained upon request.


Our fees are very competitive within the local area and reflect the high standards of care that we provide.

Please contact the nursery for an up to date pricing structure via email telephone or written request.

Eligible *2 year olds, *3 & 4 year olds are entitled to Government Funding 


We request that payment be made in advance on the first day of each month. We can arrange for this to be done by standing order if preferred.

*From the term after your child’s third birthday you will be entitled to receive the free 15 hour per week universal Government Funding. Eligible parents may also claim the extended 15 hours funding.  This may be used in one or more settings providing the total number of hours does not exceed the 15/30 per week. At the Farningham Day Nursery a total of 6 hours may be used in any one day.
