Our ethos here at Sevenoaks Day Nursery ensures a very healthy mix of children:-
Places become available throughout the year, although the peak time is September, so it’s always worth a call.
We’re open from 8am to 6pm, five days a week, 51 weeks a year. We’re closed on Bank Holidays and during Christmas Week.
We have around 60 children on our roll and 40 places per day. We only offer full-
Children can join us from 8 weeks old until they leave for school (in Kent this is in the September following a child’s fourth birthday).
We have three separate rooms: Baby Room, Toddler Room and Classroom. Each is staffed with permanent staff (we rarely use temporary staff) and each is headed up by at least one Deputy Supervisor. We have a separate Club Room which is used during the school holidays for those who are still at Primary School.
Our fee (from 1 September 2019) is £42 a day. This includes three meals, but not nappies, wipes etc. Our Club fee is £30 a day, which also includes meals.
We expect parents to visit us before making a choice, so we will provide an application form during this visit (there’s a copy of our application form on the Useful Information page).
If a place is available that suits your start date and other requirements then you may reserve it by signing a contract and paying a deposit of two weeks’ fee. This is not refundable, but will be credited to your account and be available to part-
If a place is not available, then you may be added to our waiting list.
Our admissions policy contains full, detailed information.
We generally expect to ‘ease’ a child into nursery life during a settling-

We're a charity; we keep our fees low to make it affordable and in some cases of real hardship we don't charge fees at all. The only way we can achieve this is to keep the Nursery full, every day. And if there's an empty place, then we'll be losing £42 every day. So, for example, we can't keep an available place unfilled for six months because it means we won't earn anything for that period. Having said that, I have known parents pay for a place long before their child has taken it up.
Lots of places become available during the Summer as the older children leave for school. Obviously we know well in advance who will be leaving and roughly when (some parents like to spend the last few weeks before school together), so we can plan ahead.
Places also become available throughout the year because parents’ circumstances change (new job, new spouse, new house), but even though it always happens, these are ad hoc and cannot usually be planned for (parents only have to give four weeks’ notice).
So if you want a place for your baby in six months it will only happen if, at that time, one of our babies is leaving or another is ready to go up to Toddlers and there is space in the Toddler Room because someone has left or because a toddler is ready to go up to the Classroom where there is space because someone has left!
