Holistic Ethos Nursery Model 

We operate on a basis of a minimum of two days a week, to help children emotionally invest in their nursery experience.

The below fees are inclusive of children’s nappies, wipes, hot/cold meals and snacks, year round celebrations including Birthday parties and presents. Fees are inline with other nurseries in our area and reflect outgoings due to location.

Our staff team are very highly qualified and we always have more staff than needed according to ratio’s set by OFSTED.

All our staff are in full time employment and only when necessary do we employ bank staff, to allow consistency and stability for children and the nursery & preschool as a whole.

We pride ourselves on trailblazing ethical pay for staff and being the first nursery in London and Hackney to be accredited with ‘London living Wage Award’, please see below link for further details.  All staff are paid London Living Wage as a baseline and this incrementally increases as per position in the nursery. Find out more about the London Living wage at livingwage.org.uk.

All of our staff have Continuous Professional Development (CPD) pathways in place and have regular supervisions to help them develop their professional practice. Our holistic ethos extends to our staff team, as well looked after, nurtured and happy staff leads to well looked after, nurtured and happy children.

We are proud members of the East London Traders Guild; please see eastendtradesguild.org.uk for further details, and strive to promote and work with small local business, to the enrichment of our local community.

New resources that enrich the activities  are bought weekly and we carefully consider how these resources are made as well as where they come from,  inline with our ethos as a green nursery.

The healthy food we serve is provided by Zebedees which is an Eat Better Start Better accredited catering company we are happy to be in partnership with. The food provided is healthy, nutritious, balanced and freshly cooked and delivered just before noon. Zebedees have been given the highest Food Hygiene Rating by the Food Standards Agency. Please see maisiepoppins.com/healthy-eating for further information.

Inline with our ‘team around the child approach’, we have regular communication via our encrypted childcare software Famly and the option for phone calls or video calls to build strong relationships between children’s key person’s and parent’s in a safe way following Government guidance.

This way of working is central to our ethos, creating a calm, nurturing and safe environment for our VIP clients, the children we care for.

All fees are paid monthly in advance via direct debit, with an invoice reminder sent out 5 working days prior and we do not hold deposits.

We are closed for x2 inset days a year and a 6 weekly staff meeting enabling us to provide the best care we can for your child.

Maisie Poppins is open 48 weeks of the year. Please click the below links to view our holiday and inset dates.

The 30 Free Hours

How does the 30 Free Hours work?

We use ‘stretching’ calculation method. The government provides funding for 30 free hours for 38 weeks (school year), which is a total of 1140 hours. At Maisie Poppins we are open for 48 weeks and so we ‘stretch’ these free 1140 hours, into the Maisie Poppins year for all eligible 3+ year olds.

How is it calculated?

1140 hours / 48 weeks / 5 days = 4.75 discounted hours per day.
The 3-year-old+ rate is the same daily rate as the 1–3 year olds, with 4.75 hours daily paid for by the government scheme.

We use ‘stretching’ calculation method. The government provides funding for 15 free hours for 38 weeks (one school year), which is a total of 570 hours. At Maisie Poppins we are open for 48 weeks and so we ‘stretch’ these free 570 hours, into the Maisie Poppins year for all 3-year-olds+.

How is it calculated?

570 hours / 48 weeks / 5 days = 2.4 discounted hours per day.
