Terms and Conditions of classes
Please read the following terms and conditions carefully.
Food and drink
Food and drink is allowed in our venues. We would ask that food is not consumed during a class session as this can be distracting for all children. We know that babies can need to feed and sleep at any moment so please continue to feed (breastfed or bottle) and comfort them as necessary.
Can't attend a session?
At Story Sense, a block of 6 weeks is allocated and paid for each child and this is non-refundable (see cancellation policy below). If you are unable to make a session due to illness or holiday, please inform your class leader as soon as possible. You are able to pass your space to a friend for this week. When contacting your leader, please inform them who will be taking your space.
Please DO NOT bring your child/ren to the Story Sense classes if they or you have any of the following symptoms, are ill or have serious infections which are contagious.
A high temperature
A new, continuous cough
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste
Please DO NOT attend classes if
you've tested positive for coronavirus
you live with someone who has symptoms or has tested positive
You have been near someone who has tested positive in the last 10 days.
If you have attended a class in the previous week and you or your child has developed a serious illness, please advise me of this so I can inform all others in the group. If you or your child have had sickness or diarrhoea, please ensure they are 48 hours clear before attending the next session.
Whilst we no longer need to socially distance, we have kept our class numbers low to ensure there is still plenty of space for you to spread out. Please be mindful of others in class and keep your distance as much as possible. Babies and toddlers are now able to come together to share resources and interact.
You are no longer required to wear a face mask but you are more than welcome to if you would prefer. Your class leader will continue to wear a face shield throughout the sessions.
Arrival at the venue
Before entering, please use the hand sanitizer provided.
Leaving the venue
Please use the hand sanitizer provided on the way out of the building.
Cancellation and Refund Policy

If you wish to cancel your space, you are entitled to a full refund if you have informed us in writing up to 5 days before the start of the term.
