Nursery fees debt collection
Nursery owners have expressed their frustration that paying nursery fees are often low on parent’s financial priorities and can appear the easy option to miss during a tight month. Many nurseries walk a fine line between rising costs and wage increases and the need to keep fee increases in check.
Nursery Sector Debt
Nurseries play a vital role in the lives of millions of parents across the country. They enable them to go back to work and resume a career after maternity leave and provide a safe and stimulating environment in which their children can learn, grow and flourish. However, nursery fees need to be carefully factored into a family budget to ensure they can meet the costs of the care. According to The Money Advice Service* the average cost for a full-time nursery place for a child under two is £232.84 per week.
Nursery owners have expressed their frustration that paying nursery fees are often low on parent’s financial priorities and can appear the easy option to miss during a tight month. Many nurseries walk a fine line between rising costs and wage increases and the need to keep fee increases in check. This can ultimately lead to nurseries experiencing cash flow problems and having to look to ways to collect all outstanding fees.
One of the problems stems from the close and caring relationship that builds up between nurseries and the families, making it difficult to tell them they must pay their debt. Some nurseries may simply be too nice to ask for the money to be paid back.
Paying Nursery wages
However, goodwill and embarrassment do not pay wages or cover running costs and many more nurseries are now taking a pro-active approach to reclaiming their debt. Daniels Silverman are already helping nurseries to get their finances back on track by collecting these debts in an ethical, firm but fair way. They understand that these cases need to be treated sensitively if the relationship between the nursery and the family is to remain good.
Large debts with Nurseries
There are also cases where people have run up large debts with nurseries and then withdrawn their children and walked away. It is vital to retain the services of a reputable collection agency in order to recover these debts.
