Paying your Fees
Fees are payable monthly in advance on the 1st of the month and are calculated on an annualised basis.
An invoice is generated 10 days before the beginning of the month. This will include any extra sessions from the previous month and extra services you asked us to provide.
(including snack tea)
Unlike some nurseries we charge a reasonable deposit whereas others would charge a full months fees as a deposit. If your child attends nursery more than 3 fulls days a week we will ask for a deposit of £200 any less than that and we ask for a deposit of £100
Deposits are fully refundable once your child has left the nursery and your last invoice is settled.
Childcare vouchers are a tax efficient way of paying for childcare through your salary. You may at present pay for upto £243 of childcare through salary sacrifice and avoid paying tax and NI on that amount.
We accept ALL childcare vouchers. Ask your employer about salary sacrifice schemes as this is a way of you saving money.
These schemes will be closeing in the near future.
Tax Free Childcare
Tax Free Childcare has been introduced to replace the voucher schemes. With Tax Free Childcare every £0.80p you pay into a childcare account is supplemented by £0.20p to a maximum value of £2,000 contribution by the Goverment.
There are eligibility criteria mainly both parents have to be working. There are pitfalls too; claiming tax free childcare may effect your tax credits if you claim them!

We accept cash and cheques but like it when parents pay us by eletronic transfer (standing order).
