Time to start being assertive- right now.

Write it all out for her, enclose copy of contract and relevant policies and drop it round to her tonight - if possible. I would detail in the letter where you have given free childcare (ie the 15 minutes)

WITH this letter I think I would be saying that you are offering a review of the contract and are going to be implementing advance payment of the fees and any additional hours will be billed at the end of the month.
