Twilight Hours After School Club
Twilight Hours began as an After School Club. We offer a wide range of activities, sporting, craft and much more. There is plenty of opportunity for your child to relax and unwind after a busy day at school. We have Games Consoles and tablets which are time-limited to enable all children to participate if they wish to.
A healthy snack is provided every evening. Lots of fresh fruit is accompanied by Toast, Cheese & Crackers or similar with a fruit or water drink. Children's independence is encouraged by serving themselves (with some help).
Bookings and Payments
All children will need a completed and signed contract and registration form and medical form. These must be returned to us prior to commencement of care. If your child requires any medicine whilst in our care, we need a Permission to Administer Medicine Form also.
All fees are payable in advance. We issue an invoice for the booked sessions which needs to be paid and cleared before the first day of care.
We offer 2 options:-
Regular Booking where you have the same night booked every week and your child’s place is guaranteed. The Booking Form for this can be found here.
Ad-Hoc Booking where you ask for specific dates and take the chance of them being available. Depending on your circumstances this may be organised in advance or on the same day, bookings can be made by phone or email.
Booked sessions which are not used will still be charged.
Payment can be by cash, cheque, bank transfer or childcare voucher. The vouchers are co-ordinated by your employers. Please ask for further details. We currently accept a wide range of vouchers, please find out which your employer uses and get back to us.
The Government offer several ways to reduce your childcare bills. Check out www.childcarechoices.gov.uk for full details. These can give significant savings!
A one-off £10 Registration Fee is payable for every child joining Twilight Hours
If you wish to secure a place well in advance at the Club, a payment of £50 per child will be required. £10 will be the Registration fee and £40 the Deposit. Deposits are refundable against your first half-term’s invoice. If you do not take up the place(s) the £50 is kept by the Club to cover costs.
If a cheque to us is rejected by our bank an additional charge of £10 will be invoiced to cover administration costs.
Refunds on fees paid will be given if Twilight has to close. These refunds will be in the form of a credit taken against the next invoice. This is to avoid legal issues caused by the voucher schemes and working families tax credit.
