CHARGES WHEN MINDEES GO TO PRE-SCHOOL

Hi there. I have had a mindee for over a year and his Mum told me this morning that he is starting pre-school in September and that we need to discuss it as she didn't want to lose me as there would be no fee whilst he was at pre-school. It was real rush and I did not have time to react and just told her that we will talk later. Am I right in thinking that she should still be paying me in full considering I can not use the place for anyone else or do people charge half fee like a holiday retainer? I will have him full days in the school holidays and I'm sure she hadn't even considered this and I'm also sure that I am to be "on call" should anything happen to mindee or school. What is the norm? Thanks, Allycat.

Thanks for the reassurance. One thing that I neglected to mention is that he will be 2y3m and so will not be entitled to a free pre-school place until he is 3y. So she is paying for pre-school place in full and also me in full. Does this change anything? Thanks x
