We use a wonderful App called FAMLY to keep parents up to date, giving instant access to their own account, invoices and payment history. A link is emailed to parents shortly after enrolling at Nursery. Parents can also use the App to set up direct debits or pay via visa.


Easy ways to pay childcare fees

Most parents are invoiced on a monthly pro rata basis with payment becoming due on the 1st of each month. Arrangements can be made for weekly payments, on request. Payments can be made direct into our bank account via online banking, by visa via the FAMLY app or if needed cash at the Nursery. The choice is yours.

Fees include a fee for meals for the children, including weaning foods and cows milk. Fees do not include nappies or baby formula.

Childcare Offer for Wales (30 Hour Offer), Education Funding and Flying Start can all be accessed via Osbourne Lodge Nursery and will be deducted off your invoice.
