Terms and Conditions of Enrolment for School Holiday Programs

 

Session times and costs

  • Covid-19 Update: Classes will follow updated Health and Safety Policy, including increased levels of hygiene, cleaning of shared equipment and no sharing of food.

  • Our school holiday workshops run for two, three-hour sessions (9.00 am - 12.00 pm and 12.30 pm to 3.30 pm) at our Turner Baptist Hall premises, 17 Condamine Street, Turner. 

  • Fees are $55/session including materials used, either morning or afternoon tea and GST. Children staying for a full day are supervised for the half hour change-over period at no extra charge and must bring their own lunch.

  • Unfortunately, there are no sibling discounts - we aim to keep our prices as affordable as possible.

 

Enrolment confirmation, payment and cancellations

  • Whether or not a class goes ahead depends on the number of students enrolled. Should the class be cancelled, your child will be offered a credit for another workshop, or fees will be refunded.

  • An invoice will be sent with bank details for direct debit payments one week prior to the class start and enrolment is confirmed only when payment is made.

  • Payment is by direct debit or cash only.

  • No classes run on public holidays and fees are not charged for public holidays.

  • Should we be forced to close due to Covid-19, all unused fees will be refunded.

  • We want your child to have an enjoyable art experience. If your child is unhappy for any reason, please let us know immediately so we can work with your child - no matter how small the incident may seem. Sometimes friends fall out of favour with each other, sometimes a child may make a hurtful or unwitting comment that will upset your child. This type of behaviour is not part of our artKids art agreement with the children and we want to know about it so we can address it.

  • If you do choose to cancel your child’s enrolment within the seven days prior to the class start, we are happy to refund the fee less a $55 administration fee - we prefer happy students and happy parents but do need to cover our costs.

 

Drop off and collecting children

  • Drop off is no earlier than 8.45 am as our teachers are setting up. If you need to drop your child earlier, please contact us to see if we can arrange supervision. This is an extra cost that will be covered by the parent.

  • Pick up is either 12 pm for the morning session, or 3.30 pm for the afternoon session. Please collect promptly as we need to clean equipment and set up for other classes. 

  • If you are running late, please call the teacher and let them know.

 

Children with learning needs policy

We aim to be inclusive and find that art is a great way for children with learning needs or from different countries to express themselves. However, we are passionate artists firsts, educators second and not special needs educators. We are more than happy for parents, carers or support workers to attend our classes with a child.

 

Please complete the Learning Needs Profile (MS Word) and email to us before class. We will work with parents and children to aim for an enjoyable art experience for all students in our class, however, should your child’s learning needs and behaviour take our teachers away from the bulk of the class, we will suggest small group or one-on-one tutoring as an alternative.

Parents and carers are more than welcome to stay to settle children and leave when they are ready, however long it may take. Please do not feel embarassed - some kids take longer to settle than others and that is fine with us.

 

Sick children

  • In line with our Covid-Safe Policy, please do not send a child to class who is feeling ill, has a fever, cough or runny nose. If they become unwell during the workshop, you will be called and asked to collect immediately. Please ensure the mobile number you give us is able to be answered or provide a landline alternative.

  • If your child is ill on the day of their workshop, please text or call Robyn on 0405 014 180. A credit will be issued to use at another school holiday class or transferred to a term program.

  • Please note that no refunds will be given for sick children as we base our class scheduling on confirmed number of students.
