Frequently Asked Questions...
1. Do you give discounts for siblings?
Yes, If you are full time (Monday to Friday for more than 7 hours per day) there is a 10% discount for the older child.
2. What happens if my child is ill?
If your child has a cold then I am happy to continue caring for them, provided they are well enough to take out on school runs. If your child has diarrhoea, conjunctivitis, chickenpox or anything infectious, I won’t be able to look after them until 48 hours or more after the illness. As I am available to work and unable to fill the space at short notice, you will be charged when your child cannot attend due to illness. If a child becomes ill whilst in my care, it may be necessary for you to collect them early depending on their illness.
3. What happens if I am unable to work due to illness?
In the event that I or my child is ill, I will provide you with details of local childminders near me, who may be able to care for your child. If you are happy with that arrangement you can pay them directly, I will not charge you.
4. What happens if i am late collecting my child?
I appreciate that there will be times when you are late due to unforeseen circumstances and I will of course continue to care for your child. A phone call or text is sufficient to let me know and give an estimated time of arrival. I hope you understand that additional charges may be applicable.
