Fees and Service packages

Not all parents require the same level of service from their agency and we believe that you shouldn’t have to pay for something if you don’t want it. With this in mind, we have created a 3-tier level of service packages available to parents, enabling you to completely customise your package to your requirements.

We place a high premium on the safety and well being of your children, so you will find that regardless of the service package you choose, all registered childcarers hold a paediatric first aid certificate and an Enhanced DBS (or will still have a valid CRB check), at no additional cost to parents.

In addition, by choosing Sugar & Spice to help you find your ideal childcarer, you will benefit from not paying any VAT on top of your service package charge, a huge saving of 20% from other agency fees.

There is of course no charge at all to parents to register a vacancy with our agency and fees are only payable once a candidate has been chosen and offered employment.

Regardless of the service package chosen, we are only ever a phone call or an email away and we are available to help our clients at any time.
