How we invoice:

  • Nursery fees are payable in full before the end of each month.
  • You are charged for 50 weeks a year. The Nursery is closed between Christmas and New Year, and for the last complete week in July (for larger maintenance and redecoration work). You are not charged for the two weeks we are closed.
  • One full month’s notice or payment of a full month’s fees is required when withdrawing a child from the nursery.
  • Late Fees – At our discretion there is a charge of £10 for every 15 minutes you are late to pick up your child. If you are late more than once in a calendar month the charge will increase to £20 for every 15 minutes.
