Supplementary Terms and Conditions De Kattekop Childcare Foundation
The Foundation provides paid daycare for children of whom at least one parent is a full-time student or member of staff employed by Leiden University. Staff of associated institutes such as the University subsidiaries may be considered for a place for their child(ren) at De Kattekop. Parents are permitted to maintain their place at De Kattekop if they change employer. At the point when their child is placed, one of the parents is required to have a connection with Leiden University.
Duration of the contract
Supplement: The maximum duration period of the contract is until the child starts attending primary school. This is possible providing the composition of the group permits it.
In the event that a contract for placement which has already been agreed on should be cancelled before or after the starting date of the daycare, a notice period of two months will apply.
In the event of cancellation earlier than two months prior to the starting date of the placement, administration costs (€50, 2005 tariff level) will be charged.
Payment / Late payment
Parents receive a monthly invoice on or around the 22nd of the month prior to that in which the daycare takes place. The payments take place by direct debit. If this debit should not be honoured a second debit will take place on or around the 24th of the month.
If, after the second debit, the parent has not met the payment obligation, a written reminder will be sent and the parents will have the opportunity to make the payment within 14 days after receipt of the reminder. The parents will be warned that, should payment still not take place, the contract will be terminated with immediate effect.
Debt Collection Rates
Should the parents fail to pay or be late in meeting the payment obligations, all reasonable costs related to collection of the due funds will be charged to the parents. In any event, the parents are responsible for the legal and non-legal costs, in accordance with the debt collection rates of the Netherlands Bar Association, at a minimum of € 90 (2003 price level).
