Fees per month
At Scallywags we strive to offer affordable and competitively priced childcare. Our fees are calculated on a 51 weeks year, as we close for one week at Christmas (Christmas Eve – 6th January) which we do not charge you. Fees are paid a month in advance and are due the first of every month. Payment includes any allocated sessions from which your child may be absent. Unfortunately days in lieu cannot be given.
£58.00 per day (£5.39 per hour)
1 day per week - £246.50
2 days per week - £493.00
3 days per week - £739.50
4 days per week - £986.00
5 days per week - £1232.50
When you accept a place with us we will ask you for 2 weeks fees as a deposit. This will secure your child’s place. Deposits will not be refunded if the place is not taken up at the agreed time. The deposit will act as the last 2 weeks fee when your child comes to leave us, providing that 4 weeks notice has been received. Failure to give us written notice may result in you forfeiting your deposit plus any fees paid.
Are you entitled to any additional help with your childcare fees? The government is introducing new ways to help parents with childcare costs. For further information look at our ‘Funding’ page or visit https://www.childcarechoices.gov.uk/
If your employer operates a childcare voucher scheme, you can save National Insurance and Income Tax. By registering for your employer's scheme, up to £55 a week can be deducted from your salary and used to provide childcare vouchers for the same amount. This amount, which is deducted from your gross salary, is then exempt from National Insurance and Income Tax.
We accept vouchers from many providers including
• Accor Services
• Busy Bees
If your employer uses a different provider we will liaise with you to make the necessary arrangements
Late charge for unpaid fees
Invoices are sent out annually as fees are the same each month. Fees are to be paid on the 1st of the month in advance. If fees are not paid by the 7th of the month a daily late fee can be added to your bill. . The charges will be: £10.00 for every day AFTER the 7th of the month. Failure to do this can result in termination of your child’s place.
If for any reason you cannot pay your fees, please let a member of the management team know so you do not incur a charge.
