Our Enrolment process
At the Wendy House, we appreciate that enrolling your child at nursery is a big step which needs to be made with confidence and understanding about your chosen nursery provider. We are happy to take the time to answer any questions and queries parents have prior to enrolment, as we believe these form the foundation for a positive partnership that will continue during your child’s nursery years.
Whilst our web site aims to answer many of these questions, we encourage all prospective parents to call and make an appointment with our Manager, Laura Couling to view the nursery. This will give you the opportunity to see The Wendy House ‘in action’, discuss your nursery needs and tell us more about your child.
We constantly strive to ensure our fee structure at the Wendy House remains competitive, is excellent value for money and reflects the quality and diversity of childcare we offer. Our fees for non-funded children are fully inclusive which means that there are no hidden extras for such things as nappies, snacks etc.
For funded places, this is in place to cover the cost of childcare only. We, therefore, request a daily supplement to cover food and consumables.
Please speak to our Nursery Manager for a breakdown of current fees and supplement for funded places.
Nursery fees are payable monthly in advance and are collected by Direct Debit on the first working day of each month. A pro-rata invoice will be prepared for the first month, dependent upon start date. Thereafter, any additional charges incurred during the month will be charged in arrears.
Alternative payment methods are available upon request, including card payments, internet banking transfers, childcare vouchers, cash and cheque payments.
Fees are calculated as follows:-
Total number of sessions booked per calendar month x daily rate.
The deposit required to secure a nursery place is £100.00. This will be offset against fees in the first month of your child attending nursery. In addition, there is a £100 admin fee which includes settling in sessions.
LATE OR NON-PAYMENT OF FEES
Interest at 1.5% of monthly fees will be charged and accrued on a daily basis from the 1st of each month, unless other payment arrangements have been agreed.
