Nursery Fees Terms and Conditions

  1. All spaces are allocated on first come first serve basis.
  2. Confirmation of spaces-

For non-funded spaces, a non-refundable registration fee of £25 is required along with one week’s nursery fees is required before a place is guaranteed. This doesn’t apply to FEEE funded only places.

Funded spaces will only be confirmed during the second half of the previous term that your child is eligible for funding unless they are already attending our setting in which case your place is guaranteed.

  1. You agree to sign a contract in which you agree to the nursery providing care for you child within the stated session times. The nursery reserves the right to charge an additional late fee of £5 per 15 mins of care provided outside of this agreement.
  2. Our fees are based on a weekly fee that shall be notified to you in advance of your child starting nursery. We do review these fees on a regular basis and on occasion we may increase these fees but shall inform you of the revised amount at least one month before it takes effect. If you do not wish to pay the revised fee, you may end your contract with us by giving us one month’s notice in writing.
  3. Monthly fee is expected to be paid via cash, cheque (Made payable to Small World Nursery), standing order or by childcare voucher on the 1st of each month. If payment is made by cash it is your responsibility to obtain a receipt as proof of payment. All payment, regardless of method, shall be made in advance on the first day of each month (the due date). On the first working day of each month, the payments are checked against the outstanding fees to see which invoices remain unpaid. An electronic reminder is issued through Eylog, urging parents to pay the outstanding amount within the next seven days.
  4. You agree to notify the nursery within the week of receiving the monthly fee invoice if you have any difficulty paying and we would ask that you seek a meeting with Sam or Mel as soon as possible and they can agree a payment plan with you. This will be a weekly standing order to cover your current fees with an additional amount added on top to clear the outstanding amount. It is stated that ‘continued attendance of your child(ren) is at risk if fees are not paid’(At this stage, Sam will inform Mel, the nursery manager).
  5. If no contact is made with Sam or Mel to set up a payment plan and payment hasn’t been received within those 7 days, a paper reminder is given informing the parent that the fees remain outstanding and a late charge of £5 will be added to your outstanding fees, if you do not comply with terms 5 and 6.
  6. Parent’s book set sessions each week as a part of the contract. Extra sessions on top of these may be booked dependent upon availability.
  7. Any extra care hours over the contracted amount will be invoiced at the time of booking and will be expected to be paid either before or on the day of the booking.
  8. Parents must still pay for any sickness/days absence which children must take in accordance with the sickness and absence policy.
  9. The nursery is closed on Bank Holiday Mondays, between Christmas and New Year and for two training days per year. These closures are given to you in advance through our monthly newsletter and are deducted from your invoice but we will accept not liability for other costs which you incur if we are unable to provide childcare for any reason.
  10. Holidays

Non-Funded Children are entitled to 2 weeks holiday per year. 1 week will be free and the other charged at 50%. 1 weeks holiday equates to the amount your child attends nursery.
