Fees are the joint and several responsibility of each person who has signed the Registration Form or who has parental responsibility for the child or has paid any fees or who has given instructions to the Nursery in relation to the child.
15 Free hour sessions are available. Where all or parts of the fees are funded by the Entitlement to Free Early Years provision for three and four year olds, the fee bill will be adjusted accordingly. Parents must pay for any sessions or services provided which are not covered by the funding.
A penalty charge of £5.00 for every fifteen minutes over the allocated session time will be made for any early drop-offs and late collections.
Cancellation, Withdrawal and Fees in Lieu
8 weeks notice must be given before the child is withdrawn (including places funded by Entitlement to Free Early Years provision for three and four year olds). There must be 8 weeks written notice delivered to and actually received by the Nursery Manager. 4 weeks will be needed to reduce any sessions. No other notice will suffice.
The Nursery may bring the contract to an end by giving parents 8 weeks’ written notice.
Parents may be required to remove the child temporarily or permanently if, because of the conduct of a parent or the child, it appears to the Manager that the continued presence of the child is incompatible with the interests of the Nursery. There would be no refund of fees in these circumstances but fees in lieu of notice would not be charged.
