An invoice is sent to parents each term which is to be paid by the date specified on the invoice. If payment is not received by the due date we will send a reminder letter with a late payment administration fee of £5.00 included. Should payment still not be received, the Kindergarten reserves the right to suspend the child until payment has been received. Once payment has cleared, the child may resume sessions at the Kindergarten depending on availability of spaces.

Invoices take into account Bank Holidays, inset days and special events.   Fees are not deducted for illness or holidays.   Fees can be sent directly to the Kindergarten Administrator. Cheques are to be made payable to Horsmonden Kindergarten. Cash will be issued with a receipt. If you would like to pay your invoice directly into the bank account please contact the Administrator for the details.

Please note that we also accept all childcare vouchers.
