In the unlikely event that a space at afterschool club is not available immediately, we will add your child/children to the waiting list. We also have a waiting list for Reception children starting the next school year, please send us an email if you would like your child to be added. If you have a regular place at afterschool club and need a one-off extra day booking, please email us and we will add this for you if we have space.

Holiday Club

You will be able to book holiday club dates from the first school day after the previous holiday club. The exception to this is the Summer Holiday Club which you will be able to book onto at the same time as the Summer Half Term Holiday Club. Please feel free to email us to enquire about available holiday club spaces before creating a Magicbooking account.

Afterschool club and holiday club fees are to be paid in advance of attendance through Magicbooking. Please create a payment plan at the time of booking to suit you. You will need to select if you want to pay by card, childcare voucher or tax-free childcare, and whether you would like to pay in instalments. If you need to change your payment plan, or make a mistake, please email us and we can amend this for you.

Please note that if you select childcare voucher/tax-free childcare that you will need to pay The Newcroft Club as instructed by your childcare voucher provider/tax-free childcare scheme (outside of Magicbooking). Remember to inform us at when you pay in this way, so that we can update your Magicbooking account, and make sure to use your child’s full name as the reference.
