Holidays and sickness policy:
Regrettably we cannot offer discounts or refunds to cover your booked holidays due to the need to ensure continuity of service.
You may offer your place to a friend who also has a toddler to a session you know you are unable to attend. You would need to inform your Class Leader in this instance.
Toddler Sense offers local discounts for twins and siblings.
A parent with twins/siblings will need to have either another adult or an arrangement with another parent, should they need to take one of the twins to the bathroom. The Class Leader can never be responsible for your child.
Supervision and withdrawal of service
All children must be supervised at all times and not left unattended. The Class Leader cannot be responsible for a child at any time. Regrettably as our classes are not designed for babies under 13 months or older children unless specifically invited. Younger babies (aged between birth and 12 months) attending with their older sibling must be supervised at all times. Please be aware that if children are aged above 4 years they will not be able to play on the equipment or participate in the activities due to health and safety reasons. They are welcome to attend; however, it is recommended that you bring along colouring books, story books, etc. to keep them entertained during the sessions.
Should a carer or associated visitor behave in a way that the Class Leader feels is unreasonable then the company reserves the rights to withdraw the provision of classes to the client.
No later than two weeks before your term runs out your class leader will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term. The Class Leader will inform you of the mechanism to rebook your space and payment terms. Note however that places remain on a first come first served basis.
Cancellation of Classes policy:
Toddler Sense will endeavour to run classes during bad weather e.g. snowy conditions. However should we need to cancel due to safety concerns, parents will be notified/contacted (please check your local Toddler Sense Facebook page and make sure your phone number is are kept up to date on our register).
An additional class will be offered if we have to cancel a class or refund against a future term’s fees. Regrettably we cannot automatically offer cash refunds.
Parents are asked to keep their toddler at home if they have a serious infection and to inform the setting as to the nature of the infection so that other parents can be alerted.
Please keep your toddler at home if he/she:
• Has a fever or has had one in the previous 24 hours
