Terms & Conditions

Terms and Conditions Please read the following Terms and Conditions before proceeding with your booking. By proceeding with your booking, you are agreeing to the terms and conditions.

We reserve the right to amend these terms and conditions at any time without notice.

 

Responsibility

Those in charge of the child/children are solely responsible for the control, care and safety of their child/children at all times whilst at Little Story Learners. Little People Academy Ltd and Little Story Learners cannot accept any such responsibility.

 

Cancellations

Little People Academy Ltd and Little Story Learners are under no obligation to credit or refund if your child is unable to attend part, or the entirety, of the classes paid for. We regret that we are not always able to offer an alternative for missed sessions. Wherever possible, please notify the class leader via text or email if your child is unable to attend a session. In the instance that a class venue cannot be used in the short term (due to e.g. refurbishment), we will endeavour, where possible, to re-schedule your session. In this instance Little People Academy Ltd and Little Story Learners are not responsible for any travel expenses incurred. It is occasionally necessary to change the time or venue of a class. This will only be done if necessary, and we will do our best to keep class times as similar as possible, but unfortunately, this cannot always be guaranteed. If the class leader must cancel a class with short notice then she/he will email or text you, so please ensure you check before every class in case of a last-minute issue such as illness. In the event of us having to cancel a session, we will issue a credit against your fees. When a class venue is not available on a longer-term basis (more than one week), on public health or other grounds outside of our control, then we cannot be responsible for providing any further sessions during that time at that venue. If this occurs, we will switch to an alternative means of delivery, for example online live or pre-recorded video classes.

 

Adverse Weather

In the case of adverse weather, where a session goes ahead (when the venue has been judged by the teacher to be accessible and safe), Little People Academy Ltd and Little Story Learners is under no obligation to credit sessions that may be missed in the event of adverse conditions local to yourselves preventing you from attending the session.
