Late or Non-Payment Policy

Customers who fail to settle the order fees in accordance with these Terms & Conditions will be contacted by Shine via email and requested to settle the amount in full.  Should a customer failure to comply with this request, Shine reserve the right to suspend the customer’s account and apply an administration fee of £10.00. The suspension will only be lifted once the requested payment (plus the administration fee) is settled in full.

Medication and medical details

It is the customer's responsibility to keep Shine updated about children's medical conditions and medication.  Any medication provided for staff to administer must be accompanied by a detailed care plan and must be in date.  Parents/Carers should provide full instructions regarding any treatment/dosage required.  Shine reserves the right to refuse a booking until we are satisfied we can provide a  safe and competent level of care.

Amending an Order Policy

When a customer wishes to amend an order, he/she must notify Shine staff via [email protected] or 01174 033 033. Please note that, whilst Shine will always try to accommodate a customer’s request, it may not be possible to swap a child into a different activity if, for example, that activity is fully subscribed.

Non-Arrivals Policy

Should a customer fail to inform Shine that his/her child will not be attending, the absent child will be deemed a ‘non-arrival’ and the customer will be charged in full.

Non-Booking Policy for After School Clubs

In the event that a child arrives for an after school activity without being booked, Shine will return the child to the school office for safeguarding reasons.

Late Collection Policy                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            

Any child collected after the end of the session will be charged a 'late collection fee'. The charge will be £1.00 per child every 2 minutes. The charge should be paid in full immediately and certainly prior to the child attending Shine again. Subsequent occasions will be logged and, at the manager’s discretion, may lead to the customer's account being suspended.  At settings where a second session runs, Shine reserves the right to add your child onto the second session register and the charge will be added to your account.

Emergency Closure Policy

Refund Policy

Providing the customer has notified Shine in accordance with the Cancellation Policy he/she will be entitled to a refund by way of a credit to their Shine account. Should a customer request a direct refund then he/she must do so in writing to [email protected].

Childcare vouchers Non-Payment Policy

Customers who have opted to pay via childcare vouchers must do so at the time of booking. Late payment will lead to the option of paying by childcare vouchers to be withdrawn.
