Bills are issued in advance and around the 20th of each month. All invoices should be settled by the 1st of each month. We do appreciate bills being paid promptly. Any bill not paid by the 1st will incur a late payment fee of £10.

We require a minimum of four weeks notice of any changes you would like to make to your regular hours (there is a form at each pre-school for any changes you wish to make).

If you would like to do the occasional extra session then this should be arranged with the manager and paid for on the day.

If you ever have any queries about your bill you should contact your Pre-school Manager.
