Agency Fees Explained

At Home Star Childcare, we do not charge a registration fee for any of our placements and we pride ourselves on the fact that we offer one of the most affordable childcare placement services across London, Essex, parts of Hertfordshire and Suffolk. However, if clients pay a £100.00 fee (deducted from fees) after registration and before the start of the placement process, a 20% discount will be applied to fees. This excludes fees for babysitting where full fees are payable upfront before the start of the placement process. Our minimum fees for all placements excluding babysitting is £300. We charge £20 per day for work trials. All Agency Fees are payable in full prior to commencement of the candidate. Recommend a friend - If you recommend a friend to us and your friend confirms a placement and it is all booked, then £50 will be given against your next booking for placement or alternatively, we can send you a £30 voucher of a high street shop of your choice if you prefer. The agency becomes payable within 7 days of a placement being confirmed verbally or in writing.
