Important updates and news for our existing customers



Changes not being made

After carefully considering all factors and the current economic situation we are pleased to inform all our existing customers that we have decided;

Care Cost

NOT to increase the care cost (existing customers only).




Pick-up and Drop-off Charges

NOT to increase the charges (existing customers only).







Changes being made

We are continually trying very hard and endeavour to seek better ways to improve our service. But at times to keep up our standards we are faced with circumstances to which we need to adapt so that we can remain competitive and afloat. Hence changes in some areas have to be made and certain costs added and increased.


Care Cost

We are making a slight increase in the hourly rate of our care cost to all new customers as per the pricing table.
This will NOT effect our existing customer (all existing customer will continue to be charged at the current rate as per their contract).
However the new care cost will only effect YOU if;

Pick-up and Drop-off Charges

We are also making a change in our pick-up and drop-off charges to all new customers as per the pricing table.
This will NOT effect our existing customer (all existing customer will continue to be charged at the current rate as per their contract).
However the new pick-up and drop-off charges (providing you use this service) will only effect you if;







Concerning


Payment

We still getting an increase in late payments. Payment is due every Monday against the invoice which is emailed promptly every Sunday evening for the care that was provided in the previous week (Monday to Sunday).
Late fee penalty charge will immediently be added to the invoice if payment is NOT made on the due day.







Reminders


Notice to Cancel Period




Scheduled School/Club or Home Pickup

We are still having problem with some parents not informing us in time that they do not require school/club or home pickup for their child though being contracted or scheduled. We turn up to pick-up the child to find that the child has already been picked up or pick-up was not required;




Additional/Extra Care Hours

Still in many cases once the care hours and days are set in the contract. Parents on short notice inform for additional care day/hour and in many cases start coming later than the agreed pickup time contracted with us. We try our best to accommodate all requests and still continue care even if the parent is late. We understand that in some cases this is inevitable and we don't mind and accommodate without saying. But do note that;

NOTE:
Double rate will NOT apply if you have scheduled/informed us in advance that your child will be in our care during any school mid and/or end term break, inset and/or teacher training day, festival day off at school, national and/or bank holiday or in case of emergency and unforeseen circumstances etc. The charge for the care hours will be as normal (not double).




Holiday Care

A lot of parents have been asking about this so we have decided to offer this to all our existing customers. All children currently in our (before / after school) care will benefit by automatically being placed on the sliding scale and with each additional hour the hourly care rate will keep decreasing only during mid-term, end-term, summer and winter holiday breaks.
