Please look here for sibling discount and other discount including green discount if you don't have (or use) a car.

Once we have agreed your days and time I will draw a contract and ask to be paid in advance, if you fail to pay I withhold childcare, I resume childcare once you have been paid. (I can't guaranty the "unpaid place" will be kept as the place has to be paid in full to keep the place)

What does the cost includes?

The price for Club petit déjeuner and goûter includes food and drinks. School run for St Roberts RC School or St John Fischer SportsCamps at no extra cost, it's part of the service and the learning of French continues on the road.

What help parents get towards the cost of childcare?

The DirectGov website provides lots of advice on claiming for support with childcare costs. The following information was taken from their website.

  • Help for Working Parents
The maximum for the basic element of Working Tax Credit is £1,960 a year, while there is a lone parent element of £2,010. Childcare tax credits will cover 70% of childcare. The most that can be paid for a registered provider for one child is £122.50 a week and £210 a week if you have more than one child in childcare.
  • Help from Employers & Voucher Schemes 
           Save between £624 and £933 per year with Childcare voucher.

All this is very complicated the Government  has introduced Universal Credit. It is a new benefit for a British citizen on low incomes both in and out of work. It will gradually replace a number of benefits, including Working Tax Credit. It includes a childcare costs element for those who are working and paying for childcare which is available to parents even if they only work a few hours a week.


I take 4 weeks holidays per year (including training days). Usually 7 days in summer, 3 days at Christmas, 3 days after Easter and 3 days spread trough-out the year.

Bank Holidays

I am happy to work bank holidays provided I am paid the "Unsocial hour" rate.

Overtime, pay-as-you-go childcare or emergency childcare

 If you wish to have hours outside contracted hours you need to - ask in writing (email or text) and pay for it as soon as I have confirmed.

If you are unable to comply with settling-in procedure I may request you to pay the "emergency" childcare fee for the first day and Funded Children will have the 2 first days a bit shorter.

Early booking

If you book childcare more than 1 month in advance we work out the days you wish to have and the fee and I will charge 20% per month non refundable retention fee.


In the first 4 weeks we don't have to give notice to end the contract (I will give you pro-rata refund if one of us give notice, and refund 110% of early booking fee if I break the contract) and after 4 weeks we need to give 4 weeks notice.
