Payment Policy

Methods of Payment
Fees must be paid on the first Friday of each month.  Failure to do so may jeopardise your place in the crèche.  Weeks outside semester are calculated on a weekly rate and are paid monthly in advance.

Deposits
The deposit you were required to pay upon accepting a place for your child will not be refunded should you decide not to take the place offered to you.  When your child is leaving the crèche, the deposit will be deducted from your final invoice.

Notification for Leaving
If it is your intention to relinquish your place at the crèche during the academic year, you are required to give one month’s notice.  Failure to do so will result in you being liable for one full month’s fees.
