Last year we decided on a nursery school for our little one and paid a £50 registration fee and £1500 to secure the place for this autumn.
Our circumstances have changed and I've just informed the nursery that we won't be taking up the place in September. They've now said that it's unlikely that they will fill the place so according to contract, I am liable for the first terms fees.
First, it's a popular nursery so I find it hard to believe they can't fill the place. But, it does indeed state our liability in the contract so no doubt there. However, is this reasonable or enforceable I wonder, especially in the light of the £1500 we've already paid.
Any advice very welcome. First terms fees is quite a lot of money!
