Fees

Basically my childminding service are offered between the hours of 8am and 6pm, Monday to Friday but childcare can be provided outside this period by prior arrangements.

All fees include delicious home-made meals as well as fruits and snacks.

 Term-time only childcare: A retainer of half fees will be charged for keeping your child’s place open.
Overtime / Unsocial hours Before 8am and
from 6pm onwards
£7.50 per hour
 A late fee of £7.50 will be charged after the first 15 minutes that a child is collected late or if the child is more than 15 minutes early. Payment will be added to your next invoice. This will be strictly enforced and habitual tardiness may result in termination of services.If for any reason you are going to be late or early, please inform me so that arrangements can be made for the extra time. If I am informed prior to the change in hours then a standard overtime rate will be charged and not the late fee.
Late drop-off does not constitute late pick-up!!
 Occasional minding    £7 per hour
