Please read EVERYTHING carefully. The link to record absence/book make up is at the bottom of this page.
– Clients are ENCOURAGED to mark themselves as absent which creates a greater chance of make up spots becoming available for everyone.
– To increase the possibility of your gaining pool time, the system will show available lessons for your current level and the level below. If you choose to book the level below, you still need to follow the lesson plan even if your baby has done this before, otherwise, only book the current level.
– You are allowed 2 make ups per term, but no availability can be guaranteed.
– No make ups are available online within the first 3 weeks of your 1st lesson date.
– The system will show you availability of any lesson/s 7 days from the point of checking. You can check for availability and use your make ups any time between week 3 and the last date of term.
– You can book a make up before your known absence. EG you are on holiday week 9 of term. If you mark yourself absent then you can use your make up in week 5.
– Preference is always given to online bookings.
– If you have booked a make up and don’t intend to use it, please release your spot in the parent portal at least 5 hours prior so it can be used for someone else.
– If you don’t use a make up, you can’t get it back. FOR THE CONSIDERATION OF OTHER MUMS AND DADS NEEDING MAKE UP CLASSES – PLEASE PLAY FAIR!
