Please note that late collection will be charged at £3.00 per 15 minutes or any part thereof, to cover staff overtime, unless prior arrangements are made with the nursery Manager.
It may be possible to arrange for occasional care outside of these hours by prior arrangement with the Nursery Manager.
We do ask for a deposit of £100 to be paid on registering your child. We ask for this deposit to ensure that parents/carers adhere to our notice period which, if necessary, allows to us to rearrange staff. This amount will be refunded on your child’s departure from Toddle In, subject to the required notice terms.
Unfortunately, due to the high demand for full time places, although we are able to offer shorter sessions, we do ask that if a part time place of 2 days or less is required, this must be on a short term contract of 3 months. If at the end of these 3 months, the part time place is still available, the contract will be renewed for a further 3 months.
This also applies for children who require grant only sessions as we must keep a number of places available for younger children who attend the setting and are constantly moving up.
All fees are payable monthly in advance preferably by cheque,card payment (charges may apply) or BACS transfer. Alternative methods of payment may be considered at our discretion. Payments received after the 14th of the month will incur a £20.00 administration fee (unless an alternative payment date is prior arranged with the nursery manager).
Fees for qualifying 2 year old children and 3 and 4-year-old children will also be paid monthly, with the grant amount being deducted from your monthly payment upon receipt of the council���s confirmation letter.
Please also ask for further details of the various salary sacrifice schemes which can save you up to £2,860 a year in savings on your tax and National Insurance. For more information, try Busy Bees on 08000 430 860, one of many voucher providers.
A 10% discount is offered for siblings.
When children are absent from nursery for any reason, the appropriate fees must still be paid, again to cover staffing.
We require 4 weeks notice in writing should you wish to reduce the number of hours your child attends or terminate their place at Toddle In. We will attempt to accommodate any change of hours you require as soon as possible.
