Fees & Sessions
St Rochs Childcare Service understands that the cost of registered childcare may seem expensive to parents. However, providing a high quality, safe and stimulating environment for children is not cheap and to ensure the continued high standards and sustainability of the service, it must ask that parents respects its policy in respect of fees. At St Rochs we value our relationship with parents/carers and will be sympathetic towards any difficult in paying theirs child’s fees. However, we are unable to function effectively without these payments.
New starts will be required to pay a two week deposit plus weeks fees upfront before children start the service. This secures your place within the service, deposits will be returned when your child leaves providing you give two weeks’ notice. Fees are expected to be paid one week, one month or 4 weekly in advance.
If your child only wishes to attend using the funded hours only no deposit will be taken for this, if your child wishes to leave four weeks notice needs to be given for funded only hours.
