Pay for your booking

To secure and finalise a booking, payment must be made by debit/credit through Magicbooking.

If you have Childcare Vouchers/Tax Free Credit, please add details when making the payment in Magicbooking.

You will then need to email holiday.childcare@towerhamlets.gov.uk with confirmation of your payment via childcare vouchers/tax free credit.

Confirmation of scheme place(s)

We will confirm your booking by email once we have received your payment. Please note confirmation will only be given once full payment has been made.


Cancellations must be made in writing a minimum of 5 working days before the first day of the Holiday Childcare Scheme for a refund. Cancellations made after this date are non-refundable and non-transferable.

Please note you are paying for your child’s place not your child’s attendance.
