    Question new enquiry what to do?

    Hello everyone
    was just wondering what to do i have had an enquiry for a 5yr old hols only ive never had this so what do i do with the rest of the year do i charge a retainer? or a holding deposit so i no she is coming back i need this job so dont want to scare away but i need it to be stable.
    any suggestions?
    also she wants 8-3.30 i was going to charge full week rate of £135 does that sound reasonable?

    I have children who just come for holidays

    I only charge for the time I have them.I do not ask for a retainer.

    I get paid monthly in advance

    I would ask for a deposit to keep the place if they want it

    Good luck

    I am considering doing adhoc holiday care. I will get parents fill-out a booking form for the dates they require and then pay at the time of booking. First come first served type of thing. Would this work for this mum?
