Fees and Funding As a not-for-profit provider, we strive to make our fees as affordable as possible, but we also need to be financially sustainable and be able to pay our staff competitive salaries, invest in their training and development, and maintain high standards of provision. Our fee rates vary across our nurseries, reflecting the location and costs associated with each, with an element of cross-subsidising that enables us to provide equally high standards of care and early years education for all children attending an Acorn nursery. We have put together a comprehensive fees and funding brochure that we hope you find helpful. If you have any further questions please do get in touch. Click on the above brochure to open.
