These fees are a guide only and do not form any part of a contract. They are based on a contract with the same hours and days each week. All fees are per child. Sibling discounts are negotiable. All fees are to be paid at least one week in advance. Any deductions will be made in arrears unless they are agreed at least one month in advance i.e. holiday / sibling. We will accept cash, bank transfer, standing order, and/or childcare vouchers.

Funded Sessions
We are able to offer funded sessions for 3 and 4-year-olds as follows: 15 – 30 hours a week for 38 weeks a year (term-time only) or 11 & ¾ – 23 & ¾ hours a week for 48 weeks a year

Late Charges
If a child is collected 30 minutes or more past the contracted time and it is not an emergency, late charges will be applied as follows:
Hourly rate + 50%

Settling In
We recommend bringing your child(ren) for two free settling in sessions (1x 1 hour and 1x 2 hours). Settling in sessions can be arranged after the childminding contract has been signed. If you do not have any settling in sessions you will be charged full fees from your child’s start date.

Deposit
You can reserve a place for your child(ren) by paying a deposit. This will be charged at two weeks fees of your eventual childminding fees and will only be available if we have a vacancy to match your requirements. The deposit will be credited against your final month’s fees minus any other charges. If you cancel the requested place you will lose your deposit.

Holidays
There will be up to 4 weeks holiday in twelve months where no fees will be charged and we will be closed. These 4 weeks will be chosen by us. Parents can take additional holidays but full fees will be payable. These terms may vary for term-time only or school holidays only.
