  2. Click “BOOK HERE” and select the programme you’d like to book. Choose between Term, Holidays, Early Finish and Teacher Only Days.
  3. Select between a recurring (same day every week) or casual (irregular/one-off) booking for your child.
  4. Enter your email address and create your account.

Questions? We're here to help

Enrolling into a new program may sound daunting and you may have some burning questions. We’ve put together some of our FAQs and answered them right here for your convenience.

You must rebook for every school term and school holiday.
Recurring/regular bookings are set days for each day of the week for the whole duration of the school term. This can be full-time (5 days a week) or part-time (1–4 days a week). These days must be the same day every week.
These bookings can be created under the “Recurring or Regular Booking” tab on the booking page.

Select the “Casual Booking (Full Booking View)” option and select the days you require care. This type of booking can be made at least 24 hours before the day’s care is required.

In emergencies, we may accept bookings before 12pm on the same day, if safety forms have been completed*.
Please contact the customer service team on 0800 274 172 as soon as possible.
