Nursery fees - lunches?

Just wondering what's typical - at one nursery paid lunches could be cancelled when you didn't need them, current one you can't cancel them even when on hol with several months notice.

That's shitty of them. Maybe they're using the money as a top up to fees?

You're paying for a service you don't receive. Talk about the issue with other parents. I'm sure lots of other are annoyed by it too.

I bet they won't actually make the unwanted food anyway, so you could also ask for the food for your DC while on holiday (That they won't be getting) to be gluten and dairy free. Push their cost up and give them the hassle of making a special meal just for them.

At DD's nursery, lunch is included with the fees.Packed lunches are not allowed (due to allergies). Could you not find a nursery that includes lunches in the fees?

Thanks both.

He goes to school nursery in the morning but it finishes at lunchtime so then he has a couple of hours in the paid for one. So changing elsewhere isn't practical.

It may well be topping up fees - I suspect it is also to have the minimum admin - invoices are sent in three month batches in advance. Despite asking repeatedly it seems impossible for menus to be supplied in advance also.
