us to receive your payment:

  2. It is the responsibility of the parent/ guardian to reference any payment with the child’s name and ensure this payment is set up with a bank.

(4).  Calculation of Fees

  1. The nursery year runs from September 1st to August 31st.  The nursery closes for one week at Christmas and all other Bank Holidays.
  2. The fees payable by the parent/ guardian are calculated by taking the child’s weekly attendance fee, multiplying the same by 51, being the number of weeks the nursery is open, and dividing by 12 to give a monthly payment which is required in accordance with clause 3(i).  The nursery does not permit the payment of fees on a daily or weekly basis. Any payments by a parent/ guardian upon this basis may be regarded by the nursery as a breach of the parent/ guardian payment obligations and the nursery reserves the right to terminate this agreement upon serving 5 days notice of the parent/ guardian payment default. Upon the expiration of said  5 days notice and parent/ guardian having failed to remedy their payment default then the nursery shall be entitled to treat this agreement as terminated and the provision of clause 3(iii) shall apply.
  3. The nursery does not permit the pro-rata reduction of payment fees if the child is absent from the nursery due to illness or holidays whilst the nursery is open. The parent/ guardian is therefore obliged to make full payment. In the event of payment not being made then the nursery reserves its right to terminate this agreement in accordance with clause 3(iii).

          Initial (4): ______


(5).  Cancellation/ Termination

  • After an offer has been made by the nursery but before acceptance by the parent/ guardian either party may cancel the offer by serving 7 days written notice.
  • After acceptance of the offer by the parent/ guardian either party may terminate this agreement by the service of one calendar month’s notice in writing. During that said one month period the nursery undertakes to continue to admit the child and the parent/ guardian undertakes to pay all fees. In the event of the parent/ guardian failing to pay the month’s fee’s the child place shall be immediately withdrawn and the nursery shall be entitled to serve a formal demand for payment of such monies.
  • In the event of the parent/ guardian giving notice of withdrawal of the child and immediately withdrawing the said child there shall be due to the nursery one calendar month’s fees in lieu of notice. Failure by the parent/ guardian to provide one calendar month’s notice or any notice at all shall render the parent/ guardian liable to the nursery for one month’s fees.
  • Notice must be in writing and posted/ emailed to the nursery manager.
  • If in the reasonable opinion of the nursery manager or person of similar standing or authority it is considered that the continued presence of the child referred to herein is detrimental to the health, safety or well being of the child or other children of the said nursery or the teachers, staff so employed, then the nursery may serve notice to the parent/ guardians or a request for the child to be immediately removed from the nursery and the provision of one month’s notice as referred to in-clause (ii) hereinbefore stated shall not apply.
  • In the event that the nursery decides to advertise offers or promotions additional terms and conditions may be applicable.
