Application and Fees Information
To apply for a nursery place the application form should be completed and returned to the Nursery Administrator either by post or email.
On receipt of the application form the child will be placed the Nursery's waiting list. At intervals the Nursery will contact you to update your details and to keep you up-to-date with the status of your application - if no response is received the child's name will be removed from the waiting list.
Successful applicants will be formally offered the nursery place in writing detailing the type of place offered and the formal start date; the Nursery requires a response within 3 weeks of the date of the offer.
The Nursery offers a 10% sibling discount, the discount will be set against the older child's fees as long as both children remain in the Nursery; the discount will be shown as a deduction on the fees invoice. Fees are invoiced in advance and in calendar months. Fees will not be charged for UK Bank Holidays, Nursery and College closures.
The Nursery accepts vouchers as payment or part-payment of Nursery fees; parents should note that voucher payments will not be shown as a deduction on fees invoices and it remains the responsibility of the parent(s) to ensure that nursery fees are paid in full by the due dates.
The scheme is available to parent(s) who are employed at Oxford University. For more details about the scheme visit the Oxford University Salary Sacrifice Scheme website. The Nursery fees will be calculated from the month that the child joins the Nursery up to the end of the Nursery's financial year (July) and divided into equal monthly payments.
Early Years Funding
The Nursery participates in the government-funded scheme to provide subsidised child care; parent(s) are entitled to claim up to 15 hours per week over 38 weeks per year. Remaining hours and weeks that are not covered by the funding will be charged at the Nursery's current fees rate. For more details about the scheme please contact the Oxfordshire early years funding team.

Professor Mark Casson (University of Reading) and Professor Marc Ventresca (Wolfson College, Oxford) Social scientists study phenomena in which people play a fundamental role: the economy, law, the internet, Brexit, and so on. People can generally do whatever they like, and so their behaviour is not governed by rules in the same way as the phenomena studied by physicists and chemists. Given this, what kinds of questions can social scientists answer, and how do they do it?Networking16 - 16Jan JanScience Table DinnerTuesday 16 January -6:30pm to 7:30pm
