Terms and Conditions

Parents and carers agree to abide by the following terms and conditions:

RCS is for children aged 0 to 5 years old.

Opening hours
RCS will be open from 8.00am until 5.30pm Monday to Friday and children will be in our care during those times.

See Fees document. Receipts will be issued on request. Fees for pre-school places are calculated according to the Early Years Educational Entitlement funding. All other fees are set in line with our policy as a non-profit making charity to provide affordable quality childcare.

Please advise if your child is unable to attend for more than two weeks. If we have not received advice, we cannot guarantee a place for your child. If your child is absent, it is important that the manager is notified at the earliest opportunity. Once sessions have been booked, no changes can be made until the following term unless it is to add additional sessions.

The normal weekly payment of fees will be payable until the notice has been reached.

Challenging behaviour
Parents and carers will be informed verbally wherever possible after each written incident, and the incident record sheet will be made available.

For the sake of children’s safety, no unauthorised visitors will be permitted in the dedicated children’s areas during sessions.

All children, staff and volunteers attending sessions are covered by the Robertsbridge Children’s Services public liability insurance displayed in the main entrance.

Arrivals and departures
Children must be collected by a person named on the registration form. The parent or carer will give RCS a password to be used to authorise collection. In the event of a child not being collected, every effort will be made to contact the parent or carer. If attempts fail, then after an hour Social Services will be contacted for advice. RCS cannot accept responsibility for the late collection of children. Persistent late collection will result in the imposition of a fine and your child’s place within the provision will be reviewed.

There is no provision for parking on the school site; we recommend that you park on George Hill or in one of the village car parks.
