Nursery 3 Loyalty Scheme

We’re delighted to announce our Nursery 3 loyalty scheme is now in operation. The scheme allows parents of children in Culford Nursery 3 to receive discounts of up to £800 against their Reception and PP1 summer term fees. The table below shows how the discounts are calculated and the level of loyalty discount on offer. 

  Sessions per year Credit to bill in PPR Credit to bill in PP1
Equal to  5 days a week  £800 £800
Between 3 and up to  4 days a week  £640 £640
Between 2 and up to  3 days a week  £480 £480
 Equal to 2 days a week  £320 £320
 Less than 2 days   Nil Nil

Given many children in Culford Nursery 3 will attend on a part-time basis – often involving half day sessions – the loyalty scheme has been devised on the basis of total weekly sessions rather than full days. So, if your three-year old child attends 6 half day sessions per week (equating to 3 full days) they would be eligible for £480 discount against their final year fees.

 If you would like to know more about the loyalty scheme, the please do not hesitate to contact Sarah Preston on (01284) 385412 or email the Admissions Department on
