The departure of The Big Hoot owls left many of you in a feathery flap! Well, the good news is Birmingham’s second adventure is mysteriously taking shape!
Repeating The Big Hoot’s multi-award-winning formula, Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity and Wild in Art are teaming up to present The Big Sleuth.
To most people, the word ‘sleuth’ means a private detective, but it’s also the collective noun for a group of bears! Bizarre but true.
Birmingham will bring both definitions together in the summer of the 2017 and the Sun Bear, the world’s smallest species of bear (now threatened with extinction) is the inspiration for a brand-new sculpture for this event.
These incredible creatures are sure to inspire creativity and generate plenty of fun for all you sleuth spotters on the trail! After which, the bears will be auctioned to raise valuable funds for Birmingham Children’s Hospital Charity.

A completed Application & Reservation Fee Form and Registration Fee are required to secure your child’s place.
The Registration Fee of £50 covers administration and settling in sessions. It is non-refundable.(Places are held in good faith for parents and can result in turning away other requests; it has therefore become necessary to adopt this policy, to try as far as possible to avoid cancellations).

Fees are payable monthly in advance on the first day of attendance for all full and part time places. Extra sessions must be booked in advance and are invoiced separately. These must also be paid for in advance. Accounts are payable by standing order, debit or credit card, cash and cheque. Seesaws also accept all childcare vouchers.

Invoices will be issued at the beginning of the first week in a month. Seesaws operates an accounting system of 4 weeks and 5 weeks as follows – January, February, April, May, July, August, October, November = 4 week months; March, June, September and December = 5 week months. In any 4 week month fees must be paid in full by the end of the second week, and in a 5 week month, by the end of the third week. All standing orders, voucher payments, cheques and card payments must be cleared by this time. Any parent whose fees remain unpaid after these dates, without prior permission of the Nursery Manager, risks their child’s place being withdrawn. Any payments that are cancelled or returned from the bank will incur a £25 administration charge, and the parent will be asked only to pay by card or cash in the future.

Unless we are in breach of these terms and conditions all booked sessions must be paid for regardless of a child’s attendance. No refunds are given for child sickness under 2 weeks. If a child is off sick for more than 2 weeks supported by a GP note, half fees will be charged after the first 2 weeks until the child returns.Seesaws are open all year including Bank Holidays with the only exception of Christmas Day and Boxing Day. Full fees are charged for all weeks including those with Bank Holidays. If you expect to be late collecting your child please notify the nursery as soon as possible.
