Deposits

If your child doesnt need to start for a few months, then a deposit of 4 weeks fees will be required to hold the space. If between the deposit being paid and the child's start date you no longer need childcare the deposit is non refundable. If in the unlikely event I am not able to provde a space the deposit will be refunded in full via the same way in which it was paid.

Retainers

If you require a place for your child, but wish to delay the start date and I have the space availale immediately, then a retaier of 50% of the child's weekly fees will be charged until the child's start date. These are non refundable as you are paying for a space that  I am otherwise unable to offer to other families requiring childcare. You are able to use the space as and when you need to, with at least 7 days notice, up until your child's contract start date. 

4 weeks written notice is required to terminate contracts. (Holidays are not included in notice period)

Please note ALL contracted hours require payment whether your child attends or not.

Fees are required to be paid one month in advance with any overtime being invoiced the month after.
I am happy to be paid by cash, childcare vouchers or BACS.
