Fees Session prices The cost of each session is £11.45 and lunch sessions are £3.30 A healthy packed lunch and drink should be provided by the parent/carer and we ask that boxes are clearly named and include an ice pack. The staff’s emphasis is of lunchtime being an opportunity to develop personal and social development and so sit with the children to support and assist them in developing these skills. Places need to be pre booked at the beginning of each term. Fee/Payment Policy Escrick Pre-school Playgroups Administrator prepares the bills and issues receipts as appropriate. Refunds We do not refund fees when a child is on holiday or ill, as we need to keep the place open for the child and employ and pay staff. In the case of continuing illness please speak to the Manager as fees are at the discretion of playgroup. Late collection  Should you be late to collect your child, we reserve the right to charge a late collection fee. This fee is calculated at £7/quarter of an hour, to cover the minimum of 2 members of staff required to stay after 3pm as stated by law. Each 15 minute block breached will incur a £7 charge which will be included on the next invoice. Fee Review We review our fees annually and will inform parents of any increases before Pre-school reopens in September of each year. Late Payment of Fees We are aware that families have financial constraints and endeavour to support such families where possible. Please speak to the Manager, Aministrator or any member of the Committee as soon as possible about any difficulties in paying fees. Fees are sent out on the first week of each term and must be paid by the specified deadline, generally 2 weeks of being issued. A £10 administration fee will be charged on a weekly basis for any late payments. A reminder will be sent out giving 2 week’s further notice. If fees continue to be outstanding parents will be sent a further letter asking for the fees to be paid within 14 days upon reciept of the letter or proceedings through the small claims court will be instigated to reclaim the outstanding ammount. Parents will be asked to withdraw their child until the outstanding fee is paid. Any child who recieves Early Years Education Funding will be able to remain at Pre-school for their funded hours. Should a problem arise concerning payment of fees, parents should speak to the Treasurer or Manager as soon as possible to enable the Pre-school to come to an agreement concerning payment. Confidentiality will be assured throughout.
