Booking Information

We currently have very limited availability for immediate starters and are taking bookings 1- 2 years in advance. We advise you to contact management at the earliest opportunity to prevent disappointment.

Bookings

We take bookings for a minimum of 2 days per week, to ensure they settle and benefit the most from our environment.

We average our bookings over 51 weeks and divide this into 12 calendar monthly payments, which are payable in advance each month.

We currently do not offer term time only places.

We hold one open day a term which we encourage families to attend to view the setting and register your child and secure your booking to prevent disappointment.

Once you have registered your child and secured your booking, your place will be secure on a rolling contract until you give us half a terms notice (6 weeks). Shorter cancellations will be charged at the full rate. Exceptional circumstances may be accepted if your place can be filled. For funded places your notice period will be a full term

Payment information

All payments are to be paid in advance, and our booking system which will invoice you accordingly and hold all of your account histories for access when required. 

An annual registration fee of £50 per family is to be paid on registration and will automatically apply to your account annually.

You will be required to secure your booking with a non refundable holding deposit of 50% of your first months invoice. This deposit is to be paid in full when securing your booking. Your deposit will be fully refunded to your first invoice as long as you start on your contracted start date.

Late fees of £50 per day will be applied to your account if not paid on time and action will be taken to collect any debts outstanding. We encourage our parents to contact management in advance to discuss any financial difficulties.

Government Funding

Parents entitled to government funding should contact management to ensure their is availability for this as we only have a select number of funded spaces available.

We only start funded spaces at the start of each term due to our contractual agreement with Central Bedfordshire Council. Any booking starting mid term will be charged at our usual day rate.

Parents must provide us with an up to date eligibility code on the Central Bedfordshire Agreement form prior to starting with us. It is the responsibility of the parents to renew your online code by the government deadline, otherwise normal daily rates will be set as default.

Sibling discounts do not apply once you are accessing funding.

Payment options

We ask for all fees to paid via your payment portal in your family hub. 

All Childcare Vouchers and Tax-Free Childcare are accepted. (Please be careful to set your payment date in advance of your expected payment date with us as transfers from voucher company and TFC can often be a delay and leave you incurring late fees with us.) 

If you wish to pay via bank transfer we will add 2% fee onto your monthly invoice. 

We do not accept cash, cheques, or telephone payments.
