We are open for 38 weeks of the year, from 8:45am to 3:30pm.

We offer morning, afternoon and all-day sessions.



Our pricing structure is currently under review. Please contact for details.

The nursery charges 50p per half-day session for snacks. This is added to your monthly invoice. 

The nursery runs a gymnastics class on a Monday morning and a yoga session on a Thursday morning. These sessions are charged at £2 per week (gymnastics) and £2.50 per week (yoga). This is added to your monthly invoice.

Entry is available to any child from the age of 2½. We are able to offer all-day care for over 3’s. Children staying for the lunchtime session can bring a packed lunch or order a hot meal from the kitchen of St Mary's Primary School at an extra cost of £2.10 (payable daily).

As a charity, we are unable to offer reduced rates for missed sessions. Any sessions that your child is unable to attend will be billed as normal.

Late payment of invoices will incur a surcharge.


early years funding

Children are entitled to Early Years Education Entitlement (EYEE) funding from the term after the term that they are 3, until they start school.

Your child is entitled to 15 hours per week of EYEE funding taken over 38 weeks. We are currently reviewing our policy on when these funded hours can be taken. For further information, please contact

Once your child is of eligible age you will be given a form from East Sussex County 3 times a year to complete and claim funding. Some 3 and 4 year olds are eligible to also receive Pupil Premium to support their education and development (please ask for details).

St Mary's Nursery can also offer 30 hours' funding for those parents who fit the criteria (subject to availability). Further information can be found at
