In today's modern world parents need flexibility when choosing their childcare provider. At Big A we are able to offer you a week-to-week service where you can book one day or five, the choice is yours. Each week you will be required to book and pay directly with the afterschool club for the childcare that you require for the following week, Friday is our cut-off day for booking/paying, or canceling. No booking can be made without the appropriate payment in advance.
On the days that you have reserved your child/children will be collected from their classroom/school by a qualified member of staff who will escort the children back to the after-school club within the school or if based off-site, by our company minibus or walking. Each school will have a slightly different system, please check our individual page for your child's after-school club for more precise details.
Each club provides a light snack inclusive of the price and each day the children have a variety of outdoor and indoor activities on offer to choose from. The planning within each unit is child-led and we aim to meet the demands of each child within our care.
The after-school price for our end-of-school until 6 pm is £15* for the first child and £13* for a sibling. This price is for the session however, you can collect at any time that you choose to do so. We have also introduced a 4 pm finishing time at our after-school clubs at a cost of £5 per child.
Some of our schools finish earlier on a Friday, and the charge for the early finish until 3 pm is £7.50, with the normal after-school price of £15 charged for the additional 3 pm-6 pm.
There are two booking/payment systems in place, (some schools are on our online system others are directly with the club within the school) All sessions are pre-booked and paid for a week in advance directly with the after-school club, payment can be made in one of four ways: cheque, cash, childcare vouchers, or the government childcare tax scheme. When approaching a half-term break the booking and payment will be required before the break for the first week back at school. If payment is made via vouchers or the government childcare tax scheme then a remittance is required at the time of booking, this can be a screenshot or a printed hard copy.
We do not credit for any sessions canceled on the week.
All bookings and payments are completed a week in advance with the Friday of the preceding week being the cut-off day for bookings and payments to be made. Any emergency bookings made after this time are subject to the on-the-week booking charge of £5 per day per child after school and £2.50 per child per morning, this is at the discrepency of the management team.
*All prices are subject to change but are correct as of November 2023.
