How do I register?
Before starting to use the service for the first time, children must be registered by completing the appropriate registration form and submitting it at the service with the appropriate registration fee.
Copies of the registration forms can be downloaded, picked up at services or sent in the post on request to the Childcare Strategy Team. Completed forms should be returned to the Kids Club or Wraparound Care Service your child will attend.
Families who are planning to continue to use the service should complete a registration update form before the start of each school year. Update forms will be e-mailed to all registered families at the end of May each year and paper copies will be available in all services. Completed forms should be submitted to staff in the service with the appropriate annual registration fee.
Can I use the service for one or two days in the holidays?
Once registered, you can use the service as much or as little as you require. You can select specific days for the activities taking place or so that children can participate in trips and outings.
How do I book?
Bookings can be made in a number of ways;
- Ongoing bookings - where specific days are required on a long-term basis e.g. every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.
- Flexible booking - where the service is not required on the same days every week.
Term time bookings can be made with staff in the service or by telephoning the service in advance.
Bookings for school holidays can be made by completing and returning a booking form and by phone or e-mail.
