– 2.5 hour period – 3.00pm -5.30pm.

For the Autumn Term 2020, the costs are as follows:

Daily Rate: £15.60 per day.
Monday – Friday discounted rate: £71.76 (incl. 8% discount for full week booking)

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.

7 days’ notice is required for cancellation and refund   of   a   confirmed   place   at   all  sessions.   No  refund  will  be  given  with  less  than 7 days’ notice -­  this  also  applies  to  sickness.

If your child is absent from school and is due to attend The De La Salle After School Club, you must advise The Tamariki Club as soon as possible, either by phone, text or email.

Payment
All accounts must be paid in full and in advance for the participant to attend a session. Our preferred method of payment is internet banking, although accounts may also be settled in cash or by cheque. You will be emailed your account in advance for each term block.  Payment can be made either weekly, monthly or in full – if paying weekly or monthly, all due dates are listed clearly on the invoice.

If paying online, please state your invoice number in the reference box.
Our internet banking details are as follows:
A/C Name: The Tamariki Club             A/C Number:  52770008                  Sort Code: 40-25-34

Late Pick-Up Charge
Children must be collected latest by the end of your session, i.e. 5.30pm.  If a child is collected late and after their allocated session time, then a £20 late pick-up fee will be added to your account for that day to cover the extra costs incurred for 2 staff working overtime.

Medication
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, this includes asthma inhalers.

Tax  Certificates
As The De La Salle After School Club is registered with the Childcare Registration Team, we are able to provide tax certificates for child care fees paid during the year.  Please email to let us know if you require a tax certificate.

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 club.

Meals  and  Snacks
Children will be provided with healthy snacks and drinks at the after school club.  You are welcome to provide your child with their own refreshments. Please note that  both clubs are NUT-FREE ZONES and any nut-based products brought into the premises will be confiscated and returned to parents.  During the Covid-19 pandemic period, The Tamariki Club will not be able to provide any snacks to the children, this is to reduce the risk of cross-contamination at this time. Parents should ensure that their child has an extra snacks for their time at the after school club.

Travel off Island during the Coronavirus Pandemic
If parents and/or children are travelling back into Jersey, you must make yourself aware of the current Government procedures with regards to testing and/or self-isolation. 

Until border test results have been received, or the required self-isolation period has passed, parents must not bring their child into Tamariki, 

Parents will be required to provide evidence that they, and/or their child, have received their test result, before their child is able to attend Tamariki. Ideally this evidence should be provided to The Tamariki Club the day before the child is due to start, to allow time for the club to sight the documentation.  You can send a screenshot of your text to info@tamarikiclub.com, or to our Facebook page via the private messenger function, or you can forward the text to 07829 886611 stating clearly who the text relates to. Test results for all members of the child’s household that were off Island with them must be submitted to Tamariki before the child is able to attend. 

Once this has been received, then The Tamariki Club will confirm that the child is able to attend the club.

If you have chosen to self-isolate instead of the testing option, you will need to provide a copy of your inbound flight ticket which shows the date of your arrival back in to Jersey; the self-isolation period is currently set as a 14-days. 

We would highly recommend that you have alternative childcare cover organised to cover the period from arriving in to Jersey, and waiting for your test results to be received.

It is the responsibility of all parents to inform The Tamariki Club if they have been off Island anytime in the previous month before their child is due to start at Tamariki, or, if they are planning to go off Island and then intend to bring their child in to the club after. We would prefer that we have this information ahead of time, so that we can ensure parents fully understand what they need to do on their return.

If it comes to light after a child has started their attendance at the after school club, that their family has been off Island recently, and this hasn’t been disclosed to The Tamariki Club before the child’s attendance started, then The Tamariki Club will contact the parents who will be required to collect their child immediately from The Tamariki Club.  The child will be isolated at the club in a safe area, until the parent’s arrival.  Evidence will need to be provided of either testing or self-isolation, before the child is able to return to the after school club, as per these Terms & Conditions.

Session  Changes  or  Cancellations by The Tamariki Club
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  by  The  Tamariki  Club.

Where there has been an official announcement of the closure of the school due to adverse weather conditions or any other reason other than the Coronavirus, either by the Education Department, or by De La Salle Primary School itself, or any other authoritative body, The Tamariki Club will not be liable to reimburse fees for that particular session (or  sessions).

Session Changes – During the Coronavirus Pandemic
If the Government of Jersey, or the Track & Trace Team, or any other relevant authoritative body, deem it necessary for any child attending to self-isolate due to Coronavirus (whether that is an individual, small group, or the entire club attendance), or the club is closed down due to ‘Stay at Home’ orders (‘lockdown’) or similar, then The Tamariki Club will not be liable for a refund of fees, or credit of fees to accounts, and will instead apply our usual minimum 7 days’ notice cancellation policy.

This means, that we will treat the required self-isolation of any children, or the forced closure of the club, with 7 days’ notice conditions on all relevant bookings, and parents will receive a credit to their account for any fees paid past the 7 days period.  This credit will be available to use for any future booking, either for the after school club or the holiday club; there will be no cash refunds issued as an alternative to the credit refund to your account.  

Insurance
All participants are covered by Public Liability Insurance whilst at  the clubs, however The Tamariki Club cannot be held responsible for any act, omission or 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.

Exclusion after Sickness – During the Coronavirus Pandemic
If your child or any member of your household shows symptoms of the Coronavirus at home, do not bring them in to Tamariki.  You should immediately contact the Coronavirus Helpline for advice, and contact The Tamariki Club as soon as possible after this to let them know the outcome of this conversation. 

If your child has been sent home from Tamariki with suspected symptoms of the Coronavirus, then you must:

  • Immediately isolate yourself and your household.
  • Call the Coronavirus Helpline (tel. 01534-445566).
  • Follow the advice of the helpline, and as soon as possible, advise The Tamariki Club of the outcome of the discussion with the helpline.
  • Your will need to allow a minimum of 48 hours being symptom free, before the child is allowed to return to Tamariki again.
  • If your child has had a negative test result, then they must still wait 48 hours after the test result has been received before their child returns to Tamariki.

Departure
Each  participant  must  be  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.

Photography
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,  in  printed  publications or on our Facebook page. If  you  do not wish your child’s image  to  be  used  please indicate on the booking form.

Equal  Opportunities
We consider language, behaviour or action that is designed to be offensive or creates discrimination to any user of the  clubs or member of staff, unacceptable and will not be tolerated. If any behaviour at the club is considered inappropriate, the offending pupil or pupils will be given a clear warning. If the behaviour persists, the child or children will be removed from the activity.

If a pupil continues to ignore the staff member and is considered to be affecting the equilibrium of the whole session, then a parent will be called and the pupil asked to leave, and/or will have to miss the next session they are due in.

Data  Protection
The information we collect is only for the purpose of processing your booking and providing the childcare service, we only collect necessary information to fulfil this purpose.  This information will be kept for as long as is necessary to meet our regulatory requirements.  We use third-party suppliers to help provide this service, all third party suppliers meet the new GDPR guidelines.  We protect your information with a combination of technical and organisational security measures.

Disclosure of Information with regards to the Coronavirus Pandemic
If we are required to provide information to the Track & Trace Team, the Coronavirus Helpline, or the Government of Jersey during Coronavirus pandemic, then The Tamariki Club will share only the relevant and specific information requested and for this purpose only. At present, the information that we can be requested is related to who was in the premises at a particular time, who may have been in close contact with the particular individual, names, and contact phone numbers
