Process for Changing or Cancelling a Booking

  • 6 weeks’ notice or longer:
    100% refund for all cancellations and/or changes to bookings, minus a £25 administration fee (please see below for further details).
  • 2 to 6 weeks’ notice:
    50% refund for all cancellations and/or changes to bookings.
  • Less than 2 weeks’ notice:
    NO refund for all cancellations and/or changes including sickness.

Administration Fee for cancellations
– All cancellations/change requests that are received with 6 weeks or more notice, will incur a £25 administration fee.

– Once your invoice has been emailed out to you for payment, then the £25 administration fee will be applicable with any change or cancellation requests.

– If a cancellation request is received before any payment has been made on account, then the person responsible for the booking must first pay the £25 administration charge before the cancellation can be processed in accordance with the above deadlines. The person responsible for the booking, will continue to be liable for the full fee balance until the £25 administration fee has been paid.

This fee will be charged to your account, each time you make a request to cancel or change your booking – but you may list several cancellation changes within the one email request.

Example One:

  • Email request dated February 2018.
    • Request to change your Summer Week 1 booking to Summer Week 2, plus cancel the October half term week.
    • This would incur one x £25 administration fee.

Example Two:

  • Email request dated February 2018.
    • Request to change your Summer Week 1 booking to Summer Week 2.
    • This would incur one x £25 administration fee.
  • 2nd email request dated March 2018.
    • Request to cancel the May half term week.
    • This would incur a 2nd £25 administration fee, as it is a separate and 2nd cancellation/change request.

Late Pick-Up Charge
Children must be collected latest by the end of your session, i.e. 3.30pm or 5.30pm.  If a child is collected late and after this time, then a £20 late pick-up fee will be added to your account for that day.

Personal Property
All personal property is the participants’ responsibility, unless loss or damage is proven to be due to The Tamariki Club’s negligence. Expensive and/or treasured items should not be brought to The Tamariki Club.

Meals and Snacks
If your child is staying for a complete day, please provide them with a packed lunch, lunchtime is around 12.15pm.  Children will be provided with healthy snacks and drinks for the morning and afternoon breaks, but you are also welcome to provide your child with their own refreshments. Please note that The Tamariki Club is a NUT-FREE ZONE and any nut-based products brought into the premises will be confiscated and returned to parents at the end of the session.

Session Changes
The Tamariki Club reserves the right to change session specifications wherever necessary. A full refund will be provided in the unlikely event of the session being cancelled.

However, if a session is cancelled because the club is unable to open that day due to adverse weather conditions, you will be given a credit for that day’s session to be used at a later date.  A decision will be made by 6.30am that morning as to whether the club will be open that day, and a message will be posted on our website and our Facebook page. 

All participants are covered by Public Liability Insurance whilst at The Tamariki Club, however The Tamariki Club cannot be held responsible for any act, omission, loss or damage unless proven to be caused specifically by the club’s negligence.

First Aid
There will always be at least one Certified Appointed First Aider at each session. In the event of an accident, first aid will be administered to participants in our care and, if necessary, the emergency services will be called.

Exclusion after Sickness
If your child is unwell at home with sickness and/or diarrhoea, they should be kept at home for a minimum of 48 hours following the last episode of illness.  If they are sick and/or have diarrhoea at the club, there must be a minimum period of 48 hours following the last episode before they return to the club.  We ask that your child must be well enough to eat a normal diet when they return.

Arrival & Departure
Each participant must be signed in at the beginning and signed out at the end of each session. It is the responsibility of parents/guardians/authorised person to ensure they always comply with these procedures. Written permission must be provided for collection of a child by an alternative adult.

During sessions, photographs may be taken of participants during course activities. These images may be used for publicity purposes in an image, on video, on our website, our Facebook page, or in printed publications. If you do not wish your child’s image to be used please indicate this on our booking form

Equal Opportunities
We consider language, behaviour or action that is designed to be offensive or creates discrimination to any user of the The Tamariki Club or member of staff, unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Behaviour Expectations
If any behaviour at The Tamariki Club is considered inappropriate, the offending child or children will be given a clear warning (Step 1). If the behaviour persists, the child or children will be removed from the activity and encouraged to choose an alternative activity (Step 2).  If a pupil continues to ignore the member of staff and is considered to be affecting the equilibrium of the whole session, then a parent will be called and the pupil asked to leave (Step 3).  At this level, The Tamariki Club will have the right to decide when the child/ren should return to the club, this will be based on the level of inappropriate behaviour.

Medication – temporary conditions, or illnesses
We are not able to administer any non-prescription medication including Calpol and Piriton.

In the event of a child requiring prescribed medication, parents must give written permission for it to be administered. You should be specific in terms of the name of the medication, dosage, frequency and storage. All medication must be in the original packaging and include the pharmacist’s/GP’s prescription label.

[EXERT FROM – “Day Care of Children (Jersey) Law 2002 Req. for Reg Playcare”, Section 9:4 –
Only prescribed medication or treatment is to be administered to children whilst they are in registered provision, and this must be at the written request of parents. Medicine accepted must be in the original pharmacist’s bottle or package.”]

Allergies – ongoing conditions
Any medicine that is required for an ongoing condition/allergy requires a letter from your GP, asking for the following information:

Description of the type and nature of the allergy (state symptoms for mild, moderate and severe reactions).
Treatment plan – for mild, moderate and severe reactions.

Please ask us for a template letter that we can email you, and you can take to your GP to fill in.

If you bring your child in to the holiday club, without their required prescribed medication (e.g. asthma inhaler, Piriton, EpiPen), The Tamariki Club has the right to refuse entry until we have received the medication, with the required original pharmacy/GP label on the bottle or package.

If you would like a copy of The Tamariki Club policies please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with these.
