All fees are payable in advance of your childcare and can be paid by the following methods:
- Standing Order (this is our preferred method for you to pay for your fees)
- Childcare Voucher Scheme (linked with your workplace. We are registered with a number of Voucher Schemes which have a unique reference number for our service which you will need to give to your employer.)
- Monthly invoice (short term users)
- Please note we do not accept payments by cash or cheque.
From May 2021 we will be charging a one-off annual Registration/Membership fee of £30.00 per child for after school care and £25.00 for Breakfast Club (non-ASC families only). This payment is due prior to commencement of childcare for new families, or at our re-registration period for families who currently use the service. We have abolished termly registration fee instalments and consolidated payments so families only pay for membership annually, as opposed to termly.
When first joining our service the first instalment of fees will be due in advance of childcare commencing and this is non refundable if the place is subsequently not required. A fee information letter will then be issued detailing remaining instalments; failure to set up payments by the preferred date may result in surcharges being applied for late payment of fees.
All fees are payable by standing order or voucher scheme payments unless under specific circumstances. Please speak to the Administration Manager if you anticipate any issues with payment of childcare fees.
Payments are spread across the whole year meaning regular monthly instalments should be paid to us by our payment date of the 1st of each month. All days that your child/ren will attend after school care are totalled and this number is then divided by the remaining months to give a regular monthly instalment. This calculation does not include public holidays, in-service days or holidays which are booked and payable separately.
We are registered with a number of childcare voucher schemes, please clearly indicate your provider on the relevant form and you will be sent our unique registration code. Please note, childcare voucher schemes are now closed to new applicants. Schemes already in place will continue for the foreseeable future, as per individual employers/ providers terms and conditions. Skool Is Out can also advise and assist with the Government Tax Free Childcare scheme and student grant schemes, please contact the Administration Manager for details.
We request that all parents/carers please carefully read over our terms and conditions for admission to the clubs and ensure these are adhered to at all times.
We offer sibling discount rates for both after school and holiday care. After school care currently has a 5% discount for siblings (Monday to Thursday only) with a 10% discount on childcare costs for siblings attending during our holiday clubs (Monday – Thursday only).
