Terms and Conditions
This contract sets out the terms of the out of school care place provided by SocialBall Kids to your child.
Fee payment is one month fees in advance prior to your child starting SocialBall Kids. The first fee is due approximately 17th July for the following August. Failure to pay fees by the due date will result in the offer of the place being withdrawn. An annual registration fee of £21 is required to secure your child’s place. A 5% surcharge will be levied on all payments over 21 days late and consistent late payment may result in withdrawal of the space. Costs will be reviewed on an annual basis.
A 3% administration charge applies to each transaction unless a standing order or monthly bank transfer or childcare vouchers is your method of payment
The school year has been calculated as 40 weeks and the weekly charge will remain constant throughout the school year, irrespective of in service days or Edinburgh City Council public holidays.
The club closes promptly at 6pm and we ask that you collect your child prior to this time. We are required to vacate the building at 6pm, as such we have a late fee policy - 0 to 5 minutes late will result in a £5 and above 5 minutes late is £20.

On occasion external trips out with the local area may incur a small additional charge.
Parents must inform the club if the child is unable to attend as soon as is reasonably possible. As the running costs remain the same it is not possible to give any reduction for these days.
Primary 1 and 2 children will be collected from their classes. Primary 3 – 7 should make there own way to the hall. For children that attend schools other than Hermitage Park there is a designated meeting place such as the reception area for P3-7 to meet the younger children before we walk to the after school club as a group. Any non appearance of a P3-7 child will result in a telephone call to the parent by the play leader to advise them of the situation. This is where the clubs responsibility ends.
