It can be difficult to balance work and childcare therefore my opening hours are flexible to meet parent’s needs.

FEES & PAYMENT METHODS
FULL TIME & PART TIME CARE
I charge a hourly or daily rates from Monday to Friday, per child. Fees are to be paid either weekly or monthly and in advance. All contracted hours must be paid for in full regardless of attendance.
Childminder fees can be paid by standing order, bank transfer or cash.
Childcare vouchers might be also acceptable.
Note: The child needs to attent minimum of 3 days per week for at least 6 hours per day.
(expect for 15 hours free childcare funding)
HOURLY RATE ...................................... £5.00
DAILY RATE ......................................... £37.00
THE PRICE IS ALL INCLUSIVE!
THERE IS NO MORE EXTRAS FOR MEALS, OUTINGS, NAPPIES, WIPES OR BABY FORMULA.
CHILDCARE FUNDING FOR 2, 3, OR 4 YEARS OLD
The government does not pay for any extras for childcare providers in that case funded places are not all inclusive.
If you wish to have all in one including all extras as meals, outings, nappies or wipes so there is charge £3.50 per day.
To secure a place at Childminding by Little Rascal, a deposit must be paid before your child starts. A deposit of one week of normal hourly rate calculated using the child's usual session as a deposit and will be required up front to secure your child's place.
A deposit is due the same day which contract is signed. If you increase your sessions, you will be required to pay a top up to match the new weekly fee.
This is non-refundable if you cancel the child's placement by the time your child is meant to start.
The deposit will be refunded at the end of your child's last month with me.
TEMPORARY, OCCASIONAL & EMERGENCY CARE
From time to time, you may have commitments which might be difficult or impossible to attend with a young child, such as:
training courses, tutorials
job interviews and meetings
GP, hospital, optician and dental appoinments
funeral or memorial service
hair & beauty appointaments
Christmas shopping and lunch dates
'me-time', respite care
when your usual childcare provider is closed for sickness, term holidays etc
If you find yourself in this situation I would be pleased to help where possible. There are a number of forms to complete to ensure I meet the needs of your child and the requirements of my Ofsted registration, so you will need to register your child with my service first. Once registered, you can then request childcare by completing a booking form.
There is an enrolment fee of £20.00, which includes a first session of up to 2 hours. There's no deposit fees to pay, because no space is being reserved. The session booked must be always paid in advanced and minimum of 5 hours need to be booked.
Payment must be paid by cash or cleared on Childminder's account before minding hours of your child. Early booking is recommended to avoid disappointment, but I will try to help out with short-notice arrangements where possible.
HOURLY RATE ......................... £6.00
PLEASE NOTE THAT I CANNOT EXCEED THE CHILD RATIOS SET BY MY OFSTED REGISTRATION
AND PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE.
TEMPORARY, OCCASIONAL & EMERGENCY BOOKINGS CAN ONLY BE ACCEPTED WHERE I HAVE AN UNFILLED VACANCY OR IF A CONTRACTED CHILD IS ABSENT EG, FOR SICKNESS OR ON HOLIDAY.
