At Hazey Dayz Childminding I ask for a one-off non-refundable payment of £50 to show your intention to take up a childcare place for your child. The deposit will be refunded to you in your first monthly invoice. The deposit will not be returned to you if you decide not to take up the place. This is because in holding the place for your child, I may have had to turn away other families. However, if for some reason I am unable to take on your child as previously agreed, I will refund the deposit in full.
