I do not work Bank Holidays however these are charged if parent is being paid for those days. If parents are in college then no charge.

All fees are to be paid monthly or weekly in advance.

After an initial 2-week trial period during which no notice is required of either party, it is necessary to sign a contract outlining care details for your child. Notice of termination of a contract is 2 weeks or full fee in lieu of notice (this applies to both minder and parents).

Overtime is classed for any hours worked after 5.00pm – this applies to school pick-ups or part-time and full-time contracted care.

Late Payment Fee: £10 per day for every day the invoice is late being paid.

Opening Times

Open 7 days a week from 6am until 8pm including Bank Holidays.

Closed for holidays for four weeks per annum. Parents will be notified of holiday dates a minimum of six weeks in advance.

All exceptional hours will be undertaken by negotiation with the parent and will be charged at the appropriate fee.

As from September 2013 I will be able to offer 3/4 year old Free Entitlement funded places. However each placement must be secured before the stipulated headcount day within each funding period/block. These dates can be found on the Northamptonshire Council County website on www.northamptonshire.gov.uk or are available from me on request. Once you have approach me to consider a placement for this funding I will notify you of the outcome within 5 working days.
