I started with a LO whose parents are on this course, last week. The guy from the job centre contacted me and went through it all, they don't pay in advance only in arrears, they pay 4 weeks at a time but prefer 5. They are paying a half fee retainer for half term and full fee if he doesn't attend for any reason, not pre-arranged. Dad started a job on Monday and mum thought she would have to pay the childcare fees themselves, but the job centre have said as she started before he got the job, they would continue paying to the end. Obviously I haven't been paid yet, but he said they pay straight into your bank account once they have received the completed forms back.
