Bonding School is now open term time only.
We charge £85.00 per day, but times your child/rens contracted days by 39 weeks (weeks we are open) and divide by 12 months, so we invoice the same equal amount monthly.
Our monthly fees are due on the 1st of each month in advance.
We no longer charge holiday fees and we are looking forward to welcoming new full time and part time mindees.
However part time mindees have to be in for a full day from 8am – 3.30pm. Of course early pick up is okay but we don’t cater for half days unless your child is eligible for funding where their hours would be 9am-3pm unless you decide to pay to add on extra hours up until 3pm.
Fee Payments: Please make sure that fee payments for meals and childcare are made either the day before or on the 1st of every month by 9am, this enables us to run business smoothly.
Right now, we are doing a special offer for £1,200 a month for a full time child saving you £181.25 a month for the first 12 months.
