When a child is collected late, Ofsted stipulate that two members of staff remain on duty for health and safety reasons, therefore a late charge of £8 per 15 minute will be applied, unless already arranged and paid for.
Rabbit Patch Day Nursery will require one months notice period prior to a child leaving the nursery.
