Parents/Guardians are to note that hubs provide their services from Monday to Saturday, from 08:00 to 13:00 hours and on Wednesday evening there is also an extended service from 16:30 to 19:00 hours.

The representative will ask the parent/guardian for all the necessary details and will require copies of the following documents:

  • Copy of ID Card of Parent/s and or Guardian/s;
  • Copy of the ID Card of person/s authorised to pick up the child/ren; and
  • Copy of the Birth Certificate of child/ren.

  • The Statementing Board Report;
  • The Psychological Report; and
  • The Individual Educational Plan (IEP).

Once the representative fills in the online application, the parent/guardian will receive an acknowledgement that an online application for the Klabb 3-16 service has been submitted either through SMS or Email, depending on one’s choice.

Notification of acceptance and payment
Once FES processes the application, parents/guardians will receive a notification either through SMS or Email:

  1. ​This notification will inform the parent/guardian that the application has been accepted and so s/he may access the link provided (in the email or SMS) to affect the online payment.
  2. For those who do not have an email address, the parent/guardian will receive an SMS stating that the application has been accepted and that s/he may affect the online payment.
  3. Payment may be made at any of the hubs where one can pay either in cash or by credit card. Alternatively, one can visit the FES Head Office at Mtarfa, where one can pay either in cash or by cheque.

Parents/Guardians will buy packages of hours at a cost of 80c per hour, where packages range from 10 to 150 hours.

Parents are obliged to inform the respective Centre Coordinator at least one day in advance if they are not going to make use of the service. Failing to do so may mean that the hours will still be charged. A medical certificate is to be submitted if the child is not attending due to being sick.

Topping up
When the number of hours paid for is almost utilised, parents/guardians will once again receive an Email or SMS informing them to top-up the number of hours. The same payment procedure, as noted in points 1 and 2 above, is to be followed.
