Holiday Cover (Term Dates found here)

This will be charged at £40 (£22.50 extra on top of standard wraparound costs) per full day including lunch or £5 per hour on top of usual contracted fees. If you do not wish additional holiday cover and have alternative arrangements - you will still be required to pay the fees arranged in your contract to hold the space whether you are using the space or not. 

  • Please feel free to collect your child at any time that suits you - just let me know ahead of time if you'll be unusually early in case we are out or it comes during a transition period during the course of the day

  • 7.30am-8am may be available and will be charged at £3 - please note this isn't my standard operating hours and will need to be discussed and agreed. 

  • After 6pm may also be available occasionally but needs to be discussed, negotiated, will be ad-hoc and not offered as standard practice. Late fees do apply for late collection that hasn't been previously discussed and agreed.

  • There will be a 5% discount when an additional child from the same family joins the service. This will be applied to the fees for the eldest child(ren)

Fees are reviewed every year - any changes will be notified in plenty of time and will be implemented as of August. 

Fees will be invoiced monthly - you will receive your invoice in the first fortnight of the month. Fees are payable by Bank Transfer or Standing Order to be received by the last day of the month to allow the following month's childcare to continue. If fees are not paid on time, your contract may be subject to late fees or, eventually, termination of the contract. If you have any issues or concerns with payment, please contact me at the earliest point so we can work something out. 

PLEASE NOTE: Fees are based on the space the contract fills and not attendance. If you or your child are ill or you have holidays, etc - you will still be charged the full cost as agreed in our contract. If I am ill or on holiday - no fees are payable. For new enquiries or holiday cover, priority will always be given to the largest usage of spaces.  

My holidays will be notified in plenty of time to allow you to arrange alternative childcare. I will take approximately 4-5 weeks per year including the Christmas and New Year period. My holidays will be varied between term time and school holiday dates. I will operate as standard on Bank Holidays with no additional fees or charges.  You can find my holiday dates here - 2019-2020
