Terms and Conditions

Deposit and Fees

If you wish to book your child into Kinder Park Nursery, a £75 deposit is required. Unless your child is attending nursery on a Nursery Grant Funded place only.  The deposit is refunded when one calendar month’s written notice is given to inform us your child is leaving nursery and the final month’s invoice is paid in full.  Deposits are non-refundable if you cancel the nursery place or if you fail to take up the nursery place before your child starts. Deposit returns are by bank transfer after your child has left the nursery.

All fees are due on the 1st of the month for that month.

Payment can be made in cash, cheque, childcare vouchers or BACS.

Full fees are payable from the agreed start date, as set out in the offer of a nursery place letter. If you decide to delay your child’s start date, fees are still payable from the original start date.

Fees are reviewed annually in July/August; you will be given written notice of any such increase one month before the proposed date of increase.

If you would like more information on tax credits or benefits you may be entitled to, please visit www.gov.uk/browse/benefits/tax-credits.

Absence and Holidays

Full fees will be charged for your child’s first two weeks of absence due to illness and occasional day’s absences

Your child is entitled to three week’s holiday throughout the year where no charge is made (beginning of September to end of August).  Please note children in receipt of free entitlement will not be able to transfer their free entitlement to another time whilst they are off on holiday, if holidays are taken during the school term.  If your child attends on a Term Time only place, they would not be eligible to the 3 week's holiday entitlement. At least one calendar months’ notice must be given if your child is away on holiday, or full fees will be charged, holiday cards are available in the hallway.

We do not allow a reduction of hours during school holidays.

Increase and decrease in Nursery Sessions
