Invoicing Process

Parents are generally invoiced on the first Monday of each month. The invoice is due for payment within 1 week of issue. We believe this balances the need to be flexible whilst minimising the amount of administration.

Payment is for 4 or 5 whole weeks, depending on how the dates fall. Before the period starts you will be emailed an attendance pattern, this reflects the agreed attendance. If you want to add sessions please inform the School Office within 7 days and if we can we will accomodate your needs. If you wish the changes to be permenant then they will come into effect the following period i.e. a months notice. (There is a minimum number of sessions that must be committed to in order to maintain your child's place.)

Accounts not paid in full within 7 days of the due date will incur an administration charge. Should the account remain in arrears by the next invoice due date, an interest charge will be applied at 5% (subject to change without notice) on the overdue amount. If there are exceptional circumstances that parents would like us to take into account they should contact the School Office before the due date. In general exceptional circumstances will only be considered if the account is usually paid on time.

All payments should be made to Derby Montessori School. Our preferred method of payment is BACs or similar to our account, the details of this can be found on the invoice. Payments by cash or cheque may incur additional charges which reflect the additional time to processes these payments and the charges levied on us by the Bank. We accept payment by childcare vouchers and are registered with several different companies, please contact us for further details. Derby Montessori School welcomes siblings, and offers sibling discounts.

Parents are reminded that they must give two full calendar months notice of intention to withdraw their child, otherwise two full calendar months fees are due in lieu of notice.
