If I have not received payment within seven days of the due date, I will issue you with a polite reminder. If I have still not received payment by the 14th day following the due date I reserve the right to make an additional charge ‘Late payment Fee’ as per our contract.
If at this point I still have not received payment, I reserve the right to cease minding your child with immediate effect and seek legal advice from the Professional Association of Childcare and Early Years. This may result in you being summoned to attend a hearing at County Court and if the judge finds in my favour, you will also be liable to the Court for costs.
If you have had a change in personal circumstances and are now struggling to make payments, please let me know, so we can make suitable arrangements. It may be that you are now entitled to additional funding through the Childcare element of the Working Tax Credit and other benefits.
