Tara House currently operates a waiting list system. There are the following priorities for places:

1. Sibling children will be given priority.

2. We accept 2 year funded children. Find out more

3. We have places for children with special needs.

4. Positions on the waiting list will only be granted when a registration form has been submitted. This works on a first-come-first-served basis.


Nadia is available to show parents around the nursery every Wednesday at 9.00. Please telephone to make an appointment. The places are allocated for the coming September in January. This is based on the date of receipt of your registration form. You will then have one week to accept the offer by sending a non-refundable but deductible £400 deposit. If we do not hear from you within this week, your place will be offered to the next child on the waiting list. At this point, parents who have initially been offered an alternative place arrangement, may now be offered their preference. Places for mid-year starts are offered immediately, usually in the afternoons. A further £200 non-refundable deposit will be required to secure your 2nd year of attendance. This total deposit of £600 will be deducted from your last term’s fees provided you have given a full term’s notice in writing of withdrawal. This requires notice to be given at the end of the penultimate term of your child attending.

FEES PER TERM 2015/2016 Every three and four year old is entitled to EEE funding and the school will claim this on your behalf. You are eligible the first term after your child has turned three. The EEE is worked out on a sessional basis so often you get more funding in the Autumn than the Spring and Summer as it is usually a longer term. However the nursery fees are spread evenly across the academic year. The EEE is allocated for up to a maximum of 15 hours a week and 3 hours a session. We also accept childcare vouchers but you must speak to Nadia if this is how you wish to pay. All fees are inclusive of all extra-curricular activities: French, Spanish, Karate, Dance, Computers and Yoga.
