About the Fees

What is included in your fees?

Our child day care fees include, where appropriate, breakfast, all snacks, afternoon tea and refreshments throughout the day.

Included in all year round day care fees

We ask that you provide a ‘healthy’ packed lunch for all children over 2 and readymade infant food for children under 2. Please can you provide nappies and wipes for your child. We provide formula milk. If you require your child to have a specific formula milk you will be required to provide this. Whilst your child is weaning, if you do not wish your child to consume the food and snacks provided by the Pre-School, you will need to supply these as well. There is no reduction of fees for parents supplying any of their own items.

Day care deposit and notice

Deposit is one month’s fees. This is held until notice is given, and will be used for payment towards the last month’s fees. In the absence of any notice, the deposit will be retained in lieu of notice. A full month’s notice is required in writing to withdraw or amend days or times.

Day care fee calculation

All child day care fees are payable in advance by monthly standing order, or salary sacrifice voucher, on the first working day of any month. We close for all public holidays and for two weeks over Christmas. There is no reduction for holidays taken or absence. When your child reaches the age of two, our fees are re-calculated to reflect the change in staff-to-children ratio. The new fee is effective the following month.

Day care late payment charge

An additional charge of £35 will be made if fees are received after the first working day of the month. If the fees (including the £35 charge) have not been received within a week after the first working day of the month, a further £10 will be payable for every working day thereafter during which the fees remain outstanding.

Holiday Club

Our Holiday Club fees include, where appropriate, breakfast, all snacks, afternoon tea and refreshments throughout the day. We ask that you provide a ‘healthy’ packed lunch for all children over 2 and readymade infant food for children under 2. Please can you provide nappies and wipes for your child. We provide formula milk. If you require your child to have a specific formula milk you will be required to provide this. Whilst your child is weaning, if you do not wish your child to consume the food and snacks provided by the Pre-School, you will need to supply these as well. There is no reduction of fees for parents supplying any of their own items.

Any additional trips may incur an extra cost.
