A penalty will be applied if fees are not settled in full by close of business on the 1st of each month. This will be charged at 10% of the total value of the fees outstanding for the month.

Late Collection Fee
Children are to be collected at the stated times. If children are collected late a fee of £15 will be applied to each and every 15 minute period. Persistent late collection will result in your child’s place being terminated.

Missed Sessions / Days
Fees must be paid irrespective of whether your child attends the place reserved for them or not. If you are away on holiday or your child is sick you will still be required to pay the Nursery fees in advance as the running costs of the Nursery/PreSchool depends on every child’s placement fee.
