Q: We are starting up a new nursery and would like some help with setting our fee and payment policy.

A:

You will need to research fees charged for a similar level of provision in the local area to ensure that your rates are competitive. Send out market research questionnaires to potential clients to gauge their ability to pay. Childcare providers need to take into account that parents may be able to claim tax credits on registered childcare. Some parents may also want to pay by Childcare Vouchers, if you accept these, you will need to note this in your fee policy. The National Association of Day Nurseries could also advise on policies and the local Family Information Service may also have information regarding childcare costs for the area.

Your Childcare Business Development Officer for Clybiau Plant Cymru Kids' Clubs can support with market research.
