Fees  &  Times
From September 2019, there are 2 different pricing plans for after school child care.  These changes have been brought in to match the new after school activity program that d’Auvergne School are offering from September 2019.  The session times, costs, discounts and booking conditions all match the new structure of d’Auvergne School. Please click here for our ‘Session Times & Costs’ for the after school club.

The Tamariki Club sessions start from 3pm; up to 3pm, d’Auvergne School are responsible for the care of your child.

Making a Booking
Booking requests are submitted using the online booking form on The Tamariki Club’s webpage.  Responsibility   for   the   details   of   bookings  and  payment  lies  with  the  person  making  the initial  booking.   If  the  session  you  require  is  fully  booked,  you  will  be  placed  on  a  waiting   list.  In  the  event  of  a  space  becoming  available,  The  Tamariki  Club  will  contact  you.

Making changes or cancellations
Super Saver Rate – there ARE NO cancellations, changes, alterations or swaps permitted for the entire term, once the account has been processed and emailed out to you.  You are able to make changes to the following term’s account, as long as this is done before the next term’s account is processed and emailed out to you.

All medication must be in the original packaging and include the pharmacist’s/GP’s prescription label, this includes asthma inhalers.
