Vacancies and Enquiries
If you would like further details please feel free to contact me.
Now the nasty bit – money!!
Pre school (0-5) Minimum booking – 6 hours per day and 2 days per week.
Contact me for latest rates….
Hours are rounded to nearest half an hour – i.e. I don’t book in 15 minute increments
We may decide to charge a daily/weekly rate depending on hours selected, and this may be rounded up by pence to account for holiday pay etc
Outside normal hours, hourly fee x 1.5
All fees include:
- Homemade meals/snacks and drinks for children aged 1 year and over
- Baby wipes/nappy bags
- Outings and activities.
Children 1 year and under will have their meals provided by parents. When babies are still having milks – this will be supplied by parents – with bottles. I do not provide nappies, formula milk, bottles, jars/packets baby food or baby creams
If I am taking the children to somewhere when the cost to me will be much higher than usually budgeted I may ask for a parental contribution – this will be asked for in advance.
I charge for my fees in advance monthly. These should be credited to my account on the first Monday of the month when care begins (i.e. Monday 1st October)
Extra hours/days will be carried over to your next payment
Payments can be made via childcare vouchers/BACS electronic transfer/standing order
If you wish to take a place with me and do not need it instantly, a retainer will be necessary to keep the place open. Likewise if the place is filled and you wish to book the place for when it is vacant a deposit will be required to keep the place for you. The deposit will be refunded against your last bill, the retainer will not.
There is a late fee which can be applied if you arrive or collect 15 minutes later after your contracted collection times, if this happens on a regular basis. This is currently £5 per day.
During my care if your child attends playgroup/preschools and I am required to drop off and pick up, the Child remains my responsibility, therefore normal fees still apply.
Both yourself and I are required by the PACEY to draw up a contract between ourselves for days/hours/fees/etc this is to protect both you and me. You will receive a copy of this and one will be kept on file. This will be renewed and updated as needed.
