HOLIDAY CLUB CANCELLATIONS (including child sickness):
Please ensure that children do not bring valuable toys and belongings with them as we cannot be held responsible if they go missing. We cannot guarantee the return of lost property, but will endeavour to return items on request that we are able to identify. Parents will be required to pay the cost of postage. Musical Minds will keep lost property for a period of four weeks only. If it is left unclaimed after this period has expired, Musical Minds will distribute the lost property to local charities.
From time to time we take photographs at our venues which may be used for marketing and promotional purposes. If you would rather your child was not included in any photographs we must be informed in writing before commencement of your booking.
If you book by telephone we will ask you for relevant medical information, allergies, additional needs and dietary restrictions regarding your child. If you book online the same information is requested at point of registering your child. If full information is not providedthis may result in that child being excluded from certain activities, or if it felt necessary, excluded from using Musical Minds. In such circumstances no refund or credit will be paid. Musical Minds reserve the right to cancel a booking at any time where there has been a failure to provide full information about a child.
Musical Minds reserve the right to charge a fee for late collection of any children. If a child/children is collected after the allocated collection time identified on booking, the parent/guardian will be subject to an immediate charge of £8.00 per child. An additional £8.00 will be charged for every half hour that passes, up until collection. If the parent/guardian is unable to pay the late fee at point of collection, it will automatically be added to the relevant account.
Musical Minds staff have a duty to respond if they suspect a child in their care may be suffering from abuse, or if a child makes a disclosure about abuse. In this event the relevant staff will follow the Safeguarding Children’s Policy.
