There is a step by step guide available here   http://thedart.co.uk/how-to-book-d-rt-centre-courses-online/
If you wish to book courses and pay by childcare vouchers or tax free childcare payments, this can be done by sending the list of activities you would like to:
we will then contact you to let you know the total cost so that you can make the payment.
Tax free Childcare 
 
If you would like to pay through your tax free childcare account please be aware of the following advice we have been given by  the Childcare Choices team  www.childcarechoices.gov.uk  
When you have made your provisional booking and know the total amount you need to pay, transfer 80% of this amount into your taxfree childcare account and wait for the government to pay in the remaining 20% before you pay the d.@rt. The government will only pay this money to your account once your 80% payment has been cleared.  
 
Please do not pay the d.@rt until you have 100% of funds to cover the costs in your account. Unfortunately, if you do so, the government will not pay the 20% top up and it will be the customers liability to make the payment up to the full account.

Our popular classes build arts, crafts and cookery skills in a fun and safe setting with experienced artists and tutors.

£17 a day for the main activity from 10am till 3pm and the choice of wrap around care from 9am till 10am, or from 3pm till 5pm at £3 per hour.

£22 per day for all cookery sessions and Teen Tuesdays as these include extra ingredients/ resources.

This is childcare with a creative focus!!!

3. In the event of a customer choosing to cancel their course a refund cannot be given, nor payment swapped to another session, unless the course is full and we can fill the space.
4. Should the d.@rt Centre have to cancel a workshop you have booked onto, an alternative workshop or date will be offered. Where this is not possible or acceptable to you, a full refund will be paid.
