On requesting a place for your child, you will be asked to complete a registration form and parent contract.

Invoices will be issued in advance of the term to which they relate.
Payment is due within 14 days of the start of the term to which they relate. Please pre book any additional hours via the school office in advance; you will be invoiced afterwards.
Unpaid/late payments will be subject to a late payment charge of £5 per week outstanding. In addition, we reserve the right to charge daily interest on all outstanding amounts at the rate of 3% above the Bank of England base rate. Continued late payment may result in the withdrawal of your child’s place at Nursery.
Payment should be made by BACS using the following information:
|Reference||Your child’s surname and first initial|
Late collection fees will be invoiced at the end of the month in which the late collection occurs.
Fees are payable for sessions that are booked regardless of attendance. No fee is charged for statutory holidays but fees remain payable where a child is absent from Nursery e.g. due to holidays or sickness. Refunds will not be given for missed sessions (except in exceptional circumstances).
A minimum of six weeks’ notice will be given prior to any increase in fees.
The minimum contract period is one term (there being six terms per academic year).
We require a minimum of a half term’s written notice commencing from the first day of the term to reduce or cancel your child’s regular booking.
You must immediately inform us if your child is suffering from any contagious disease, or if your child has been diagnosed by a medical practitioner with a notifiable disease. For the benefit of other children attending you must not allow your child to attend whilst they are contagious and pose a risk to other children during normal daily activities. Any child who has a sickness bug must be clear of sickness and/or diarrhoea for 48 hours before returning to Nursery.
Providing a safe environment for children to learn in is our highest priority. Our Safeguarding Policy can be found here.
All additional policies are available for inspection; please speak to Mrs Perkins, Principal for further information.
