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?
Hi Mouldy Cheese . 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.
