Fee Structure

An up to date table of fees is posted on the main notice board. Please note that different fees apply to students and staff of Trinity College. If either parent of a child is a member of staff of College the staff rate will be charged. Parents will be notified annually of any increases in fees.

Payment of Fees: The method of payment is by cheque or bank draft, postal order or via banking online, made payable to Trinity Day Nursery or through payroll for staff parents. Two weeks fees must be paid in advance. It is vital that parents keep up to date with payment of fees. If parents miss more than two weeks payment, they will automatically lose their child’s place in the Nursery.

Closures, holidays and absences: Fees are charged on a weekly basis. Fees are not charged for one week when College is closed over Christmas, but are charged for all other weekdays throughout the year, including Bank Holidays. During the initial 5-day ‘settling in’ period (see below) when a child first starts in the nursery, your deposit will cover this trial period. Students may take six weeks holidays per year, one must be taken when we close at Christmas and the other five must be taken during the summer period (mid June to the beginning of October) without charge. Students must book their holidays, in writing before the end of April. If holidays are not booked students will have to pay for time off during the summer. Staff parents may take 3 weeks holidays per annum without paying fees, one of those weeks must be taken at Christmas and staff must book their holidays, in writing, before the end of April. If holidays are not booked staff will have to pay for time off during the summer.
