Terms and Conditions
Blossoming Baby Terms and Conditions aim to present a fair sustainable structure to all. I aim to provide the highest quality classes for all my customers at suitable venues.
I am committed to the safety of all persons who attend the classes and to deliver the highest standard of service.
Participating in a Blossoming Baby class or course is entirely at your own risk without any proven negligence, breach of duty of care or lack of due diligence by Blossoming Baby.
Payment is through the online booking system on the Blossoming Baby website or through BCAS payment.
Confirmation of Place
If payment is made through any other way than card or PayPal payment using the online booking system, your place will only be confirmed on full payment. Booking confirmation will only be sent when payment is received. If you pay using the online booking system, you will receive an automated reply confirming your place and/or an email with the course details.
A course or event may be cancelled provided you inform Blossoming Baby by email within 7 days of the course commencing. Please note there may be an administration charge of up to one class for any changes made.
You may offer your place to a friend as a gift provided you inform Blossoming Baby of the change.Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
Regrettably I cannot offer discounts or refunds to cover your booked holidays due to the need to ensure continuity of service.
Blossoming Baby offers local discounts for twins if brought by one adult sitting within the teaching circle.
Supervision and Withdrawal of Service
All children must be supervised at all times and not left unattended. Blossoming Baby cannot be responsible for a child at any time. Regrettably as our classes are age specific from the age of birth up to three, older siblings cannot attend unless specifically invited.
Should a carer or associated visitor behave in a way that the Blossoming Baby 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, Blossoming Baby will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term or course. Blossoming Baby 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
Blossoming Baby will endeavour to run classes during bad weather e.g. snowy conditions. However should I need to cancel due to safety concerns, parents will be notified/contacted. Please check the Blossoming Baby Facebook page and make sure your phone number is 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 I cannot offer cash refunds.
Illnesses and Sickness Policy
Parents are asked to keep their babies 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 baby at home if he/she:
Has a fever or has had one in the previous 24 hours
Has had an upset stomach or diarrhoea in the previous 48 hours
Has heavy nasal discharge
Has discharging eyes
Has symptoms of a possible communicable diseases such as:
Hand, foot and mouth disease
We cannot offer a refund for a lesson missed due to illness. You may offer your place to a friend, who also has a baby, to the session. You would need to inform Blossoming Baby in this instance.
Commitment to Equal Opportunities
Blossoming Baby has a commitment to ensure that the equipment and activities are value and worth to everyone regardless of race, culture, language, gender, age, experience, religion, background, ability or disability.
The information on this form contains personal data.
Blossoming Baby will record, process and keep your personal information secure in accordance with the Data Protection Act 1998. Information will not be passed onto a third party.
Videos, Photographs and Confidentiality
I like you to be able to take pictures or videos of your babies or children during the course provided it doesn’t interfere with the class. In addition please always be sensitive of taking pictures of others without their permission. If you are asked to stop, please do respect the rights of others.
In addition, if Blossoming Baby feels that the amount of video is excessive, not just short clips, then you may be asked to stop.
Please remember that much of the content of the class is under copyright and while I am very happy for you to practice at home, these are not to be incorporated into another public activity without my permission.
Protection of Property
Please note that your property left in prams or bags is your responsibility and Blossoming Baby cannot take any responsibility for the safeguarding of these items.
Health & Safety and Hygiene Policies
Blossoming Baby follows rigorous internal checks of the venue and its own equipment to ensure that they are clean and safe. Daily Risk Assessments are conducted.
Blossoming Baby asks all parents and carers to remove their shoes while in class in order to reduce the chance of transmission of microorganisms. Shoes need to be worn to visit the bathroom within class times and care exercised to avoid slips.
Changes to Terms and Conditions
Blossoming Baby may update these T&Cs. I will inform you of changes through regular channels of communication and you have 14 days to opt out of accepting changes in writing. Failure to do so will entitle Blossoming Baby to treat this agreement with you as being updated with the changes.
