Grins & Giggles Child Care

Licensed child care will begin on a two-week trial period. The following terms and conditions will be required for full-time or part-time care.

Registration: All paperwork must be completed and turned in prior to starting care. Payment of two weeks in advance is required to begin services or to hold a space for your child. Space will not be held longer than a two-week period. This pre-payment is non-refundable if you change your mind prior to beginning services.

Monthly & Weekly Payments: Payments of a minimum of two weeks are due on the first day of every month or the first day of the week, paid in advance. Payments not received within four (4) days after the due date will be charged a late payment fee equivalent to 10% of the full monthly fees, and will result in your cancellation of your child's care if 5 or more days late, or if payments are consistently late each week/month. Receipts will always be provided for your records. You will be given 30-days notice in writing of any changes in rates, policies or terms of contract agreement.

Returned Checks: I prefer payments to be in the form of cash or money order, however I will accept personal checks made payable to Nancy Thurm. You will be charged a $25.00 fee for any check returned from the bank for any reason. Should two (2) checks be returned for non-sufficient funds, all further payments are to be cash or money order, and paid in advance, or services will be terminated.

Late pick up: A late fee of $5 for the first 10 minutes late, plus an additional $1 per minute thereafter that you are late picking up your child at your appointed time. This appointed time will be set with you when we accept your application and receive your holding fee.
