Fees and Bookings Policy

Permanent bookings

Permanent bookings are those confirmed for the whole term or the entire school year. This can be for a full week or for selected days. Fees must be paid in advance or by direct debit each week.

Casual bookings

We aim to cater for families that require flexible care and/or are not able to confirm days for the whole term. Wherever possible please confirm your bookings in advance and not later than Sunday.
Casual rate is $17/ session. You may purchase a casual bookings card ($170 for 10 visits) or pay weekly online. Cards are valid until the end of the school year and can be shared among siblings. You are welcome to try us out before purchasing a casual bookings card.

On the day bookings

Whenever possible we accept late bookings / one off bookings. We cannot guarantee places will be available. Please text 027 3356904 and check back for a reply. Please call if you do not get a confirmation text.


Once your child is enrolled we expect him/her to be at the programme unless we have been notified by the parent/caregiver otherwise. If we have not been notified and your child does not arrive, we are obliged to do everything we can to find him/her. In this instance we will use all the contact info you have provided on the enrolment form to track down your child. This can cause long delays and can be very disruptive to other children. Please remember to let us know any absences. For late absences please text 027 335 6904

Late Pick Ups:

If you pick your child up after 6pm a late pick up fee of $5/ 15mins will apply Payment methods:
