How do I pay an invoice?

You can pay your invoice through your Tax Free Childcare account, using childcare vouchers or by BACS. From September 2020, we will no longer accept BACS and instead you can pay through the FAMLY app using a credit or debit card, you can even set up a direct debit.

I have made a payment but it is not showing in my FAMLY app account yet, why?

If you have paid by BACS, please allow 2 working days for your account on FAMLY to be updated. If you have paid by childcare voucher, please allow 10 working days for your account on FAMLY to be updated. Some childcare voucher are only sent to us on a Friday each week, therefore, if you pay on a Saturday, it wont reach our bank account until one week on Monday, and therefore be added to FAMLY on the Wednesday. this is the slowest payment method.

You will contiue to receive payment reminders until your payment is allocated to FAMLY.

If my child is sick, do I still have to pay?

If we go on holiday, do I still have to pay?

If you go on holiday your nursery fee is still payable. It is possible to sell your holiday sessions to another family. Just give us 8 weeks notice of your holiday. If another family can use your place, we will refund you 70% of your nursery fee.

How can I tell you that we are going on holiday?

You can let us know that you are going on holiday through the Famly app. This is useful for our planning and means that we will not contact you when you do not attend.

When I tell you I am going on holiday, can I cancel it again?

yes, this is fine, providing noone has bought your session, just let us know as soon as you know you are not going.

We often go away for a whole month because our family live abroad. What are my options?

Some families prefer to use our Flexible childcare option. You can read about that here Alternatively if you have a continuous booking with us, you can choose to go away for one month per year and pay a 50% retainer fee for that month. This is applicable for one whole calendar month and not a part month. You need to give us 2 full months notice to do this so that we can plan our staffing accordingly. Sometimes parents choose to give notice to leave us and then rejoin the nursery. This is fine, but you will need to pay a new registration fee and we can not guarentee that your child will rejoin the same group or have the same key person when they return. You will also lose any discounts you have and when you start with us you will be on the most up to date pricing structure on our website. It is important to consider the best option for your circumstances.
