Recommend a Friend Scheme

There is no better gift than telling people about us and the great work we do. In return, we want to say thank you through our Recommend a Friend Scheme.

Simply recommend a friend and both you and your friend can receive up to £150 EACH if your friend registers their child for a place with us.

If you have a recommendation, please pass on their details to the Nursery Manager and when they register, confirming your recommendation, complete three months' childcare, you can both receive a thank you from us!

If your friend registers for:-

  • Two sessions per week = £50 in total (£25 each)
  • Four sessions per week = £100 in total (£50 each)
  • Six sessions per week = £150 in total (£75 each)
  • Eight sessions per week = £200 in total (£100 each)
  • Full time place of 10 sessions per week = £300 in total (£150 each)

1 session is the equivalent of half a day (either including or excluding lunch) based on our standard session times.

This offer is for new registrations only, excludes FFE grant funded sessions and is subject to availability.


Subject to availability: If we have a space available for your child in the appropriate room on the days and sessions you require.

Register: Completion of all required booking forms and ensuring we have all essential information for your child to start at The Old Vicarage Nursery.

FFE – Flexible Free Entitlement: Excludes sessions only comprising the 15 hours per week for children aged 2, 3 and 4 available and paid through Blackburn with Darwen Borough Council.

New registration only: This offer is available to registrations that take place after 16th January 2017 with no previous attendance at The Old Vicarage nursery for the previous three months.

Nursery fees: An appropriate deposit must be received for each new booking and ongoing nursery fees are paid via direct debit or approved childcare voucher scheme. Your reward amount will be given in the form of a credit to your nursery account on the invoice following completion of the initial three months from taking up a place. A credit will only be given if your nursery account is up to date.

Sibling discount:  If the recommendation forms two children joining the Nursery, the full scheme will apply to the first child (eldest), followed by 10% of the award being generated through the second child.
