If parents are experiencing difficulty meeting payment of fees, they are asked to inform the Director or Management to negotiate a payment plan to overcome the situation. Where satisfactory arrangements are not made or adhered to, to clear the debt parents will be notified in writing and given a period of 1 week to pay their fees. After a period of one week, if fees have not been paid a final notice will be sent, and management may at their discretion give 1 week’s notice of intention to cease care. Failure to finalise the fee account will result in your details being forwarded to a debt collection agency who will take the appropriate course of action. Accounts referred to a collection agency will have all legal costs and commission added to the amount due. Where more than one party is liable for payment of this account they will be liable jointly and severally.
