Invoicing and Payment Terms
Fees are calculated every half-term and are issued to you by hand or via email at the beginning of the half-term. Fees can be paid in full by the given due date stated on the bill, or monthly, weekly, either by BACS or cash. Please note that if you are paying weekly this must be paid in advance on the first day of the week that your child attends the Nursery. We do not accept cheques.
Only cash payments will be followed up with a receipt as proof of payment. Late fee payments can incur an overdue payment fee of £5.00 per overdue day.
Calculated on the number of hours your child attends we charge an overall quality consumables supplement of 20p per hour, payment for this will be included in your bill and terms of payment are as stated above. Children who are eligible for FEET funding or Pupil Premium are not charged this supplement.
If you have requested additional one-off sessions or have been unable to collect your child by the official collection time, and we have as a result provided you with additional childcare facilities, we will raise the applicable charges under a separate invoice for payment.
Fees must still be paid if your child is absent due to sickness or holidays.
Where we offer a reduced fee rate after a child’s birthday, that reduction will take effect from the first day of the following billing period.
In the event of late collection of your child, a late payment charge will be applied of a minimum of ½ an hour at your child’s hourly rate after 15 minutes.
