Terms and Conditions
Please read the following terms and conditions under which we offer our services. By making a booking or using any of our services (eg attending a class or event) you agree to accept and abide by these terms.
We are unable to give refunds for, or carry over to a future booking, class sessions that you do not attend.
At the discretion of the class leader, and depending on availability and prevailing guidelines on mixing established groups it may be possible for you to make up the missed class by attending any of our other classes. This should be during the current block of classes you have paid for and may not be carried over to subsequent blocks. Please check with your class leader before attending a different class.
Baby Development Courses are sold as a 6 week continuous course and we are unable to refund for any missed classes during the course. Where a deposit is taken for this course this secures your place on the course, and is not refundable if you are subsequently unable to take up your place.
At the discretion of the class leader, and depending on availability and prevailing guidelines on mixing established groups you may be able to attend another course elsewhere in the same week to catch up. Please check with the class leader regarding this.
If a class is cancelled by the class leader you will be informed of the options available to you to make up the class.
Where the cancellation of a face to face class is due to factors beyond our control, in particular, but not limited to, coronavirus (COVID-19) restrictions, for example local lockdowns or requirement for isolation we reserve the right to substitute online classes for face to face sessions, and in these instances, no refund or carrying over of class sessions will be provided.
Your child (or children) is your responsibility during the class. Please supervise them closely during the session and particularly during the use of equipment. Do not allow them to go near equipment when it is not in use.
At all times please follow the instructions and guidelines of your class leader, including those relating to guidelines imposed by the venue or other authorities, whose only goal is your child’s, and your safety and enjoyment.
Please no food or drinks during the session (apart from breast/bottle/tube feeding for infants).
In order to help prevent the risk of the spread of infectious diseases, such as, but not limited to, coronavirus (COVID-19) there may be measures in place for those attending classes which you will be asked to adhere to. These could include washing or sanitising hands, keeping a certain distance from others not from your household, following directional signage in relation to the venue, or other similar measures. Please ensure to follow these guidelines as given by your class leader and for the venue.
No liability can be accepted for any incident that occurs due to this guidance not being followed.
While Tots Play makes every effort to ensure the safety and comfort of you and your child during the sessions, participation in our activities, and the use of our equipment is at your own risk. Your class fees include insurance cover for your child.
Infection control policies, such as cleaning regimes and hand washing/sanitising protocols following prevailing Government guidelines have been developed for our class sessions and events and will be carried out by your class leader as required.
Healthy Children and Adults
Please bring only healthy children to class. You and your child should remain at home if he, she or you have had a fever, vomited, or had diarrhoea within the past 48 hours or are exhibiting contagious cold symptoms (usually during the first few days of a cold) or any symptoms of COVID-19. If you see another child with a runny nose or cough, do not automatically assume the child is contagious. Allergy symptoms can resemble cold symptoms.
We reserve the right to refuse admittance to the class if we feel that the child or adult is too ill to participate, or has coronavirus (COVID-19) symptoms, such as a raised temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste.
Parents and children should wear comfortable play clothes. For Discovery Tots please bring a blanket or mat for your child to sit/lie on. For Social Tots children should have bare feet or non slip socks/slippers and dresses should not be worn as they may interfere with class activities.
For Action Tots children should wear closed in soft soled shoes. Any jewellery, with the exception of small stud earrings, should be removed from children before starting the class. Adults should also avoid jewellery that dangles in any way or could get caught up when participating in class activities with your child.
Photography and Video
From time to time we may request to take photographs or shoot video during classes to use for marketing and promotional purposes, which may include, but is not limited to, use on social media, promotional materials or our website.
Tots Play is happy for you to take photographs of your own child during classes. If you wish for another child to be in the picture please seek permission from the adult accompanying that child before taking pictures.
Class time should be enjoyable for all. If your child is disrupting the group, or is in any way harming other children, we kindly ask that the adult responsible for them remove the child from the group until said behaviour has stopped.
In order for the children to be able to focus on the group activities and to develop their listening skills, we ask that chatting between adults is kept to the free play section of classes.
We ask that mobile phones be places on silent during classes and only used in an emergency or to take photographs as detailed in the photography and video section of these terms.
Tots Play reserves the right not to allow a child or parent to return to class if their behaviour is deemed unacceptable, in this instance we will refund any unused portion of class fees.
What If My Child does not want to participate?
At Tots Play we let the child be the guide. At this early age, not participating in an activity is entirely appropriate. As with anything new it often takes a few weeks for children to settle in to the classes, and it is not expected that they will want to join in with everything straight away, or be able to concentrate for the full session to begin with. After all, part of the reason for coming to the classes is to develop these, as well as many other skills, and this does take time. Our group activities are encouraged but we never want to force a child to participate, rather we feel that each child should be able to join the activities at his or her own pace.
Children learn in different ways, some will participate, some will learn by watching and others by listening. We often hear from parents that a child who seemed not to be participating will repeat the songs and activities later at home. It is worth noting, though, that the more enthusiastic you are about the activities, the more likely your child is to want to join in, and the quicker they will feel at home.
It can also be seen that children progress much more quickly in the skills that the classes promote when Tots Play becomes part of their weekly routine, rather than something that they attend now and then. Once they settle in and become used to the classes most people find that the child’s enjoyment of the sessions and their level of development increases enormously.
We have a number of play resources, including the specially recorded songs used in class, available for purchase so that you can continue to enjoy your favourite Tots Play activities at home. Ask your class leader about the current range and pricing or visit our online store at https://www.totsplay.co.uk/online-store or music store at https://www.totsplay.co.uk/buy-music
We also have pre-recorded, online courses, of some of our classes and activities that you may like to take part in at home to extend the Tots Play fun throughout the week. These can be found at https://www.totsplay.co.uk/online-courses. Please ask your class leader for a code if you would like to purchase one of these in order for them to receive credit for this.
Ask your class leader about provision of party services and nursery sessions in your area.

COVID- 19 DISCLAIMER AND ACCEPTANCE OF RISK
Any participation in online classes still requires safety measures to be taken. All activities require Adult Supervision, and care must be taken that the area to be used at home is clear and there are no hazards or other issues that could cause injury whilst participating in the online sessions. You must also ensure that any equipment you are using for any session is suitable for the activity being demonstrated/participated in. By taking part in any Tots Play online activities you acknowledge and accept that you do so at you own risk, and should take appropriate steps to ensure that participation can be carried out without injury either by participation or by and hazards or equipment used.
While class sessions will be adapted as far as possible to allow for social distancing guidelines to be adhered to, we recognise that when working with mobile babies, toddlers and pre-schoolers it may not be possible to keep them at the required distance from each other at all times. We have balanced the potential risk of this with the further measures taken, such as hand washing/sanitising and reducing or eliminating the sharing of equipment. By attending classes however, you accept that there may be occasion that children do not remain at the specified distance from each other and choose to attend classes with this knowledge. The safety measures that have been introduced are intended to minimise the risk of contracting the Covid-19 virus, but this risk cannot be completely eradicated. Therefore by attending any of our classes or events you acknowledge that you do so at your own risk.
