Terms and Conditions
The Nursery is open Monday -Friday 7.45 am – 6.00pm, 51 weeks a year excluding Bank Holidays and Christmas Eve through until the New Year. Parents are requested to adhere to these times otherwise a charge will be made £5.00 for every 5 minutes late.
Fees are payable per calendar month by voucher or standing order. Fees must be paid one month in advance on the first day of the month. Full fees will be charged at all times whether or not a child is present. An allowance has been incorporated into the fees for holidays, Bank Holidays, Christmas and sickness. The Nursery still has to function normally and maintain staffing levels. Should we be unable to open due to adverse weather conditions fees will not be refunded as nursery expenses will still need to be met.
All children from the term after their third birthday will receive the Early Years Grant. We also accept most childcare vouchers.
A non-refundable deposit of a full month’s fees per child is required when reserving a place at the Nursery; this will be offset against the first month’s fees. It is not our policy to allow children to attend only for the month that the deposit covers.
Introductory visits are free and are arranged prior to your child’s start date.
When there are two children attending fo rthe same amount of time there is a reduction of 5% on the oldest child’s fees.
Cancellation or Withdrawal
One full months notice must be given in writing before the withdrawal of a child or a reduction in the number of days or a charge will be made. It is necessary for us to have a confirmed start date, if you reduce the days or alter your start date within three months of your due start date your deposit will be lost.
Free Early Years Entitlement
Rates will be different when children are entitled to the FEYE. Invoices will be given with fee rates shown plus wrap around care and meals, which are excluded from the FEYE.
FEES WILL BE REVIEWED ON AN ANNUAL BASIS.
