The deposit will be held by the Nursery for the duration of the child’s stay at the Nursery and will be refunded at the end of the child’s stay provided a four weeks’ notice in writing is given prior to a child leaving the Nursery or to terminate your child’s place. The notice period is a paid notice. The first four weeks after the child’s start date is not inclusive in the notice period. Deposit is not refundable if the place is not taken.
Notice of Termination: Paid 4 weeks’ written notice is required to terminate a place. If no notice is given to terminate a place, 4 weeks fees will be charged by the Nursery and paid for by the parent/guardian.
Please note: The Nursery reserves the right to terminate any child’s place or restrict access to parent/guardian or child, at any time without notice, in consideration of the protection of other children and staff, and the well-being and smooth operation of the Nursery.
