What do I charge for childcare?

Pricing and Charging Policy for Government Funded Early Years Education and Childcare

Opening hours are 7.30am – 6.00pm, childcare is charged at £4.50 per hour.  A late collection free of £2.50 per 15 minutes is charged for any child who is collected late.

Children are required to attend a minimum of 5 hours per day (usually 9am -2pm).  This allows us plenty of time to go out and enjoy our day rather than being tied to the house

I am able to deliver government funded early years education and childcare places for eligible 2, 3 and 4 year olds.  This will be 570 or 1140 hours per year depending on parent’s circumstances.   Children can attend term time only (15/30 hours per week) or use their funding entitlement across the year.  The setting is open approximately 48 week per year, my holidays are published several months in advance.

I ask parents of funded 3 and 4 year old children to pay a small contribution of 50p per hour.   Parents will be sent an invoice each month for any additional hours required as well as the hourly contribution.

The fees for funded hours are paid directly to the childminder by the Local Authority.  I do not require a deposit for these places, refundable or otherwise.

I do not work bank holidays so parents are not expected to pay me on these days.   If I am on holiday or off sick then there is no charge.  If the children I mind are off due to sickness or holidays then the full fee is charged.  Fees should be paid in advance either weekly or monthly.

You will be asked to sign a contract to secure your child's place and confirm that you agree to my terms and conditions.
