Country Nursery Group to relieve financial burden on parents during cost of living crisis to families in the Newark, Farndon and Kneesall areas

A nursery group has announced a Christmas Gift this year to give back to families in the area during difficult economic times.

Country Kids Day Nursery has three locations within the Newark Area, one in Newark, another in Farndon, and lastly — a nursery in Kneesall.

"Cost of nurseries typically rises every year with an annual price increase that follows the cost of inflation," said a spokesman from the company.

"In addition to this, the vast majority of nurseries had to introduce consumable charges for children who were eligible to receive free funded hours from the Government.

"This is due to the Government's lack of funding given directly to childcare providers.

"To support our parents during this current cost-of-living crisis and for all those parents struggling to access childcare due to rising costs - this Christmas gift is for them.

"From December 1, 2023, there will be no consumable charges across any of our Country Kids sites.

"All funded hours will be exactly what we want them to be - completely free.

"We have also just announced that for the year 2024, we will not be carrying out an annual price increase.

"We hope this will allow parents the opportunity to get back on their feet in this difficult financial time.

"To top it off, we are also reducing the cost of our afternoon sessions and our holiday club, to make this more affordable to families in our local areas.

"Our high-quality childcare package will remain the same — extracurricular activities, lovely home-cooked meals prepared fresh by our inhouse cook, incredible scrapbook journals for each child on their learning and development.

"We know this will have a huge impact on our current families and would love for those families unable to access childcare currently to have access to a lovely nursery for their little one or little ones to attend."
