Fees & Discounts

Shannon ChildCare is open Monday to Friday from 8am to 6pm. We can organise early drop off and late pick-up at an additional cost. The price structure is based on the number of nursery days and hours within a week.

Our price includes two courses for lunch and dinner and we provide hot food for both meals. Everything is prepared by our onsite brilliant Chef, and our children love our food, eating second and sometimes third portions!

During the day our children are also offered snacks and drinks (excluding formula milk). Alyson Shannon studied and achieved a Level 3 in Nutrition and designs the menus; we are committed to providing nutritious meals. Our menu is vegetarian using protein in different forms such as pulses, beans, cheese, eggs and fish etc. please see our Nutrition & Menu section.

In the interest of your child we recommend and accept a minimum of 2 full days a week. For more information on fees please call 020 8958 6630.


Discounts are available for full time care at 5%. A sibling discount of 5% is available when both children attend four days or more. The discount is applied to the older child.

Furthermore, 3 and 4 year olds of qualifying, working parents in England are also able to access a further 15 hours, resulting in a total of 30 hours funded childcare per week over the 38 week period.
