Discounts and subsidies

Loughborough University Salary Sacrifice Scheme

The University’s Salary Sacrifice Scheme is available for all salaried employees of Loughborough University. Under the scheme, employees will be able to pay their Nursery fees from their gross (pre-tax) salary, resulting in a saving in income tax and national insurance contributions.

Loughborough University Staff

A one pound per hour subsidy is made available by the University for their staff members on grades 1-4 during their employment. Confirmation of employment will need to be verified by the University once your child has started and it can take up to a month to process your application.

Disclaimer: Subsidies are not applied to Government funded hours. Proof of eligibility is required to obtain subsidies. If your circumstances change, you must inform the Nursery. Loughborough University Nursery Limited will reclaim any subsidy payments that have been falsely claimed.

Loughborough University Students

A one pound per hour subsidy is made available by the University for their students during the academic years at Loughborough University. Students will need to download a Certificate of Registration from the Student Self Service portal to enable the discount to be applied to the invoice.

Disclaimer: Subsidies are not applied to Government funded hours. Proof of eligibility is required to obtain subsidies. If your circumstances change, you must inform the Nursery. Loughborough University Nursery Limited will reclaim any subsidy payments that have been falsely claimed.

Registration Fee

This will be charged, per child, on confirmation of a booked place. This covers administration costs, two planned visits and a Loughborough University Nursery bag.

Settling in sessions

We offer packages to assist your child with settling in. Settling in visits and introductory sessions are key to a child’s smooth transition into our nursery. These discounted packages have been designed to enable a gentle transition for your child into nursery according to ages and stages of development.

Invoices are issued at the end of the month for the proceeding month and are payable by the 10th of the invoiced month (please allow sufficient time for payments to clear, including voucher payments).

We accept Educational funding that is available to children for the Autumn Term following their third birthday and eligible two year olds. The outstanding invoice balance, not covered by FEEE, will be required to either be paid by vouchers, bank transfer or debit card.
