University subsidisation does not impact fees

The key argument that ARU put forward, that they should not be subsidising the community to the detriment of their students, paints an inaccurate picture of the situation as this subsidisation does not affect the costs born by the parents in any way. The fees for the local community are still in line or greater than other comparable providers in the area (prices based on a child under two years old attending full-time):

ARU, nursery Cambridge = £61.25

ACE nursery = £56.75 per day

Clarence House, Cambridge = £43.50 per day

Pata-cake Nursery, Cambridge  = £41.60 per day

Granta Park,  Kids Unlimited = £55.00 per day

Butterfly Day Nursery, Cambridge = £61.60 per day
