Nursery fees (full time) after free allowance granted

I hope it's ok to describe a bit our case with our nursery, where our 3yo attends full time. We got our first invoice after applying the Free 570 hours/year, and we are very surprised at the small difference it makes in the fee.

Before the free allowance, we paid around £1000. With the free allowance, we get a discount of £35. The new invoice indicates of those around £200 are for meals (which shouldn't change).

This means that we were paying around £800 per month for the nursery hours (5 days a week), and now will be paying around £765 (for around 4 days a week paid hours).

Is this discount amount common?

Best regards,

Query the invoice surely?

Hi Mouldy Cheese smile. We are doing that now.

Perhaps there was no reason to post here before having a response from the nursery, but I went into panic mode as soon as I saw the invoice, as I was expecting a significant discount :S.

I was thinking that the same may have happened to other parents (hopefully not!) and they could offer advise before meeting the nursery staff.

You should save more than £35 obviously . You need an itemised invoice rather than a meeting with nursery staff.
