We have an annual registration fee of £5 per family ( not per child)
We recognise the varied working patterns of families in rural areas so have a flexible approach. We have a minimum charge of 1 hour per day and thereafter charge half hourly.

Under 2 years old £4 per hour
2 years - 5/school age
(whichever is older) £3.50 per hour

Invoices must be paid within 10 days of issue.
Sickness is charged at 50% of the first day of any sickness.
These must be made at least a week in advance of the first day of care required to allow us to allocate extra staff if required. We are very busy some days so cannot always accommodate bookings but always try our best. Cancellations must be made a minimum of 48 hours in advance or the space is charged for. Bookings must be made on a booking slip available ion the entrance hall or by e-mail or directly to staff in Toybox ensuring that staff have time to note your booking!
Booking priority goes to families who use us the most.
