How can I pay for my nursery place?

Northumbria University Staff

Nursery costs are collected monthly via Payroll. If you are a staff member we can arrange for your fees to be deducted via our tax efficient Salary Sacrifice scheme. A helpful guide to this beneficial scheme is available on the staff intranet here.

Community Users

Nursery costs are collected via direct debit on a monthly basis.  Once an allocated place is accepted by you, we ask for a £100 non-refundable deposit in order to secure your child’s place. This will be refunded in full once your child leaves us.

We collect your nursery costs on the 25th of each month following your child’s start date.
