Terms and Conditions
As a nursery if we have any concerns about your child, we have an obligation to contact Social Services and also advice and assessment, this could also include health visitors and any outside agencies that we feel will help with the development of your child. All forms completed are legal documents and require both parents and nursery signatures (if necessary). If parent/carer refuses to sign any forms (e.G accidents, existing injuries), advice and assessment could be informed.
Enrolment forms must be completed and returned before a child can be considered for entry to the nursery. In order to provide sufficient continuity, the minimum number of sessions available for part-time is 2 sessions per week. If you change your child’s sessions a new form must be completed.
pixieland will only be closed during the Christmas week and on bank holidays. No charge is made when the nursery is closed.
In cases of disruption to service pixieland and Rogers Burrow will do everything in its power to operate the service where it is safe to do so. However, severe disruptions may require the closure of the nursery or reduction in service. In such cases, fees remain payable during any period of closure.Examples of force majeure include but are not limited to extreme weather (including snow and ice), other acts of god or third parties outside of the nursery’s control including disruptions to highways, public transport, utilities and industrial action.All other days are to be paid in full – this includes holidays, sickness.
Sickness days are to be paid in full (long-term illnesses will be considered individually) early starts and extras will also need to be paid in full if your child does not attend. Please call the nursery by 9am if your child will be absent due to illness, so we can inform other parents if it’s a contagious illness.
All extra sessions must be paid for at the time of booking.
