A Registration Form must be completed in full and signed before a place at the nursery can be considered.
For 2yr funded spaces, you must check eligibility for the funding by providing evidence of your date of birth and National Insurance number to Barking & Dagenham Local Authority. You must also be in receipt of an income benefit or child tax credit.
On receipt of your confirmation to commence your nursery place, we will provide you with details of your settling-in/start dates. Children will be offered a place in the term AFTER they turn 2 years old.
For 3yr funded spaces all children are eligible and you will be offered the funding in the term after your child turns 3 years.
For fee paying parents a £150 registration fee will be required for a full time place, or £75 for a part-time place. We will then confirm your place in writing and settling/start dates will be provided. This is a one-off non-refundable payment and will secure your child’s place at the nursery.
On receipt of your confirmation to commence your nursery place, you will be invoiced from the agreed start date. Should the place not be taken up, you will be responsible for one month’s fees in lieu of notice.
Fees must be paid in advance by standing order in the first week of each month. You will be notified in writing as to what the fees will be. A standing order mandate must be set up prior to the child’s starting date. Where fees are not received by the last day of the proceeding month we reserve the right to offer the place to another child.
Fees will not be refunded for any periods of sickness, holidays or absence from the nursery.
Should you wish to increase or decrease the number of days, or change the days your child attends during the year, one month’s notice will be required. Any changes will be subject to availability and at the discretion of the Nursery Manager. You will be notified in writing of your revised payments.
If a parent wishes to withdraw their child from the nursery, we will require a month’s notice in writing. Otherwise, the parent will be charged for the sessions within the notice period.
The nursery will be closed on all Bank Holidays and for three days during the year for staff training. Fees are charged as normal during Bank Holidays but not for staff training day. There will also be a period over Christmas / New Year when the nursery will be closed for essential maintenance and repairs.
