Initially, you will need to register with Bookings @ Berkhamsted.

If you have already registered on the BASECAMP website, the same login details can be used.

1. Register your child(ren)

Enter your child(ren)'s name, school and year group.

Once you have registered your child(ren), they will be remembered for your next booking, so this stage will be skipped.

2. Choosing Dates

Select your child(ren)'s names to book sessions by ticking the box alongside "Book sessions for [child's name] during ..."

Next choose which dates you would like to book from the checklist: next week, the next two weeks, the next month, or a particular term.Click continue.

3. Choosing Sessions and After-School Clubs

For each child, select the sessions you wish to book for each date shown by ticking the appropriate tick box.

If your child is attending an after-school club (details of your child's allocation can be found on the Parent Portal) and you require care following the club, choose the session time required for pick-up, select the tick box to indicate your child will be attending an allocated after-school club on that date, and select the club to which your child has been allocated from the drop down menu.

NB Choosing a club that your child has not previously been allocated will not mean attendance and an extra hour of wrap-around care will be charged.

In the top-right corner of the screen, details of how many credits you have remaining in your account will be shown. These will automatically update as you choose sessions. It will also update the credit balance when an after-school club is chosen to reflect the time the child will be attending a club.

Bookings need to be made for Breakfast Care by 7.00am and for After-School Care by 3.00pm on the day.   Please note that if booking WAC with Childcare Vouchers as payment, all bookings need to be made 14 days in advance of the session required.  Any late bookings can be made using an alternative form of payment (please see section below detailing payments).
