My normal hours of opening are Monday to Friday 7.30am-9.00am and Monday to Thursday 3.30pm-6.00pm. Contracts are term time only, which means that during school holidays, no fees/retainer fees will be charged.
Golden Valley has 5 Inset Days (teacher training days) per academic year and these will not be charged for as I do not work these days.
Fees per session: Hourly rate £4.50 (minimum charge 1 hour in the morning and 2 hours in the afternoons). The extra half hour rate, between 7.30am-8.00am and 5.30pm-6.00pm, is £2.25 per half hour. Fees can be paid by cash, bank transfer or childcare vouchers (I am registered with lots of childcare voucher companies).
I operate a Core Hours System which means that the contracted hours, agreed by all concerned, will be charged for whether they are used or not (this ensures that the placement will be reserved for your child).
Juice and biscuits or crackers are provided on arrival back from school and fruit is also provided, free of charge, for all children who are still present at 5pm.
Birthday cakes are also free of charge for those children with me in the afternoons – and they’re homemade!
