I had my child attending childcare and had a contract with that business which stipulated that each party had to give 2 weeks notice if they wanted to terminate the contract. The business terminated the contract this week and gave me two weeks notice. I used one day of the notice period then did not take my child back after my relationship with the carer soured. I have already paid for the day I used and have advised the carer I would not be making any further payments. The carer is saying that I still need to pay the full two weeks, however it doesn't say anywhere on the contract that I am bound to use the service once the contract has been terminated. I wouldn't leave my child there again, and I don't think I should have to pay for services I have not used. I have also already sourced a new day care with my child starting next week (one week after the previous carer terminated the contract I had with them). The business is also registered with the local council and the council say any payment dispute is between me and the childcare business. They will not enforce anything. I have also received an email from the council stating that the childcare business did not seem to be practising within their code of conduct or ethics (based on email correspondence I had with the carer following the termination). I'm hoping she just drops it but I'd like to know for my peace of mind if she can make me pay under contract law. Thanks for any comments.
