Terms and Conditions Effective from 09/09/2013
We understand and accept the terms of registration and terms of payment which are detailed below.
Fees are payable monthly in advance by cash, cheque, online or by card payment. Cheques are to be made in the name of, ‘Treetops Nursery Fees Account’. Online payments should have the child’s name as the reference. Any payments made in the nursery must be to the Manager or Deputy Manager in exchange for a receipt of confirmation.
No deductions are made in respect of bank/public holidays, sickness, holidays, or nursery closures due to ‘acts of god’, infectious diseases or environmental factors (such as snow) beyond our control.
Fees are calculated on a weekly basis. Payment of fees must be made for four weeks in advance of the proceeding sessions. The minimum acceptable number of sessions is three per week.
Fees are reviewed on an on-going basis; appropriate notice of any change of fees will be given.
If fees are not paid for any reason up 15th of each month, Treetops Nursery reserves the right to refuse to accept a child into the nursery until full payment is received.
Confirmation of a place is made by a payment of a refundable deposit which equates to two weeks of the chosen sessions. We require one month’s notice to terminate or amend your booking which much be given in writing should you no longer require the place. Fees are payable during this notice period.
Sibling discount is applied at the rate of 10% to the eldest child’s fees.
When a child’s fees change with age, the new fee rate will apply from the 1st of the month after their birthday.
The sessions booked on registration are a permanent booking, and one month’s notice should be given for any reduction or increase in this agreement, subject to availability.
Extra sessions required on an ad-hoc basis will be subject to availability and cannot be swapped to another day. Any extra sessions are to be paid for on the day of booking. Any cancelations will not be reimbursed.
