TERMS & CONDITIONS - 2018


The following sets out our terms and conditions of the agreement that exists between you and us having registered your child for a place at Time 4 Nursery and or Overton Kids Club. It is very important that you read and clearly understand these prior to your child attending.

1. Registration:
We must have a completed, signed registration form, together with a deposit of one week’s fees before your child can attend.  The deposit will be credited to your final invoice, provided that the terms and conditions set out have been met and there are no fees outstanding. 

The deposit will be retained if the place is not taken up or you postpone your registered start date by more than two weeks to cover administration costs.  A further weeks deposit will be required to re-register a new start date.

2. Opening Hours and Sessions:
The nursery is open 52 weeks of the year - Monday to Friday from - 7.30am to 6.00pm. Your child may attend full time, full days or sessions. We do not stipulate a minimum of sessions or full days.

The after school club is open term time, Monday to Friday from 2.30pm until 5.30pm. We do not stipulate a minimum of sessions. As our club serves a number of local primary schools, it remains open to all children on all schools teacher days.

Please make sure your child is collected nursery/OKC ON TIME otherwise late pick-up charges of £7.50 will automatically be added to your next payment. This charge is made because of the additional employment and administration costs incurred and we believe it only fair that this charge is not absorbed and payable by parents who always collect their children on time.

Collection of children outside the published closing time will incur a charge of £15.00 per child for the first quarter hour and £5.00 per child per quarter hour thereafter. This charge is made because of the additional employment and administration costs incurred. If after a period of 1 hour the nursery or club has not been able to contact the child’s parents/carers/emergency contacts, then we have a duty to care to ring social services. 

It is appreciated that on rare occasions circumstances may make late collection unavoidable. On these occasions we would ask you to contact Time 4 Nursery on 01524 851288 or Overton Kids Club on 07805 529494 as soon as possible to let us know what alternative arrangements have been made to collect your child.
