Kia Ora Parents & Caregivers,

Holiday Programmes bookings are now LIVE for 19th – 23rd April!  We are giving priority to people on our database to get in first, before making any public and social media posts.  Apologies it’s later than hoped, but we have been working on two changes

  1. New Age Groups!

We’ve listened to feedback and we’ve split the age groups into 3 groups, so activities and friendships can be even more targeted.  All programmes will be running different programmes, and have different coordinators and leaders. Click on the links below see the activities for each programme:

  1. Years 1-3: Kea
  2. Years 4-6: Pukeko
  3. Years 7-9: Piwakawaka

We will access the success of the new programmes before deciding if to make them permanent or not.

  1. New Payment Method

The Aimyplus data system now allows us to take payment at the same time as bookings, and then you are guaranteed your spot, without waiting for us for confirmation.  There are 3 options for payment at the time of booking:

  1. Bank Transfer (no fee for you)
  2. Visa or Mastercard – Credit or Visa Debit (2.5%)
  3. WINZ Client. You will need to input your client number into your profile before choosing this option.

All Bookings are done online at: https://yat.aimyplus.com

Here’s a reminder of how to make a booking after logging in:

– Click on ‘Make a booking’

– Select childs name

– Change Programme Venue: ‘Youth Alive Oscar’

– Select ‘Holiday Programme’ & click ‘Next’

– Select the programme appropriate to your child’s age & select all three days

Our Summer Holiday Programmes are now taking bookings!!!!  For the first time, we are running Holiday Programmes before Christmas, because of the gap between when schools finish and the Christmas Break. We will then be running for the two final weeks of January.

If you plan on applying for the OSCAR SUBSIDY, please do so asap, as it helps the paperwork from our end too. If you have any questions about finance, email: accounts@yat.org.nz or any generic questions about holiday programmes, email Shelly at: rego@yat.org.nz

We only take ONLINE registrations, so please log-in with your usual email and password and choose the dates you want! If you’ve not logged in before, click ‘New Parent’ and go through the process, before making a Booking for your chosen child. https://yat.aimyplus.com

 

A Teen Camp and Intermediates Breakaway are also running prior to Christmas! Plus a Babysitting Course for Teens. Follow the hyperlinks for more details. Busy Summer!!!

Change of Policy: In order to be fair to those who need childcare for the whole week, we won’t be confirming any single day bookings until Friday 4th December. This is in response to some people just booking the special outing days, and others missing out on the full week of childcare they need, and only able to attend on ‘in’ days. We value the relationships and trust we’re able to build over the week, and place priority on leader/young people connections. Please contact us if you have exceptional circumstances.

In Level 2 we will have a maximum of 38 children in each programme, plus their 8 leaders. If we move into Level 3 or 4, we won’t be running a programme, and any money paid will be reimbursed. If you plan on applying for the OSCAR SUBSIDY, please do so asap, as it helps the paperwork from our end too. If you have any questions about finance, email: accounts@yat.org.nz or any generic questions about holiday programmes, email Shelly at: rego@yat.org.nz

Change of Policy: In order to be fair to those who need childcare for the whole week, we won’t be confirming any single day bookings until Friday 11th September. This is in response to some people just booking the special outing days, and others missing out on the full week of childcare they need, and only able to attend on ‘in’ days. We value the relationships and trust we’re able to build over the week, and place greater priority on leader/young people connections, than just entertainment.
