Reading Fairy terms and conditions/policies
Reading Fairy's terms and conditions aim to present a fair sustainable structure to all. We aim to provide the highest quality classes for all our customers, as is our need to secure the regular employment to secure the best class leaders and venues available.
We are committed to the safety of all persons who attend our lessons and to deliver the highest standard of service.
Participating in a Reading Fairy class is entirely at your own risk without any proven negligence, breach of duty of care or lack of due diligence by Reading Fairy, your local franchise or its employees.
Payment is through our online booking system.
Confirmation of place
If payment is made through any other way than card payment using the online booking system, your place will only be confirmed on full payment. An acknowledgement will be sent with payment details however 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.
A course or event may be cancelled provided you inform the franchisee in writing within 7 days prior to 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 your class leader.
Thank you for your understanding and co-operation.
Holidays and sickness policy
Regrettably we cannot offer discounts or refunds to cover your booked holidays due to the need to ensure continuity of service.
You may offer your place to a friend who also has a child to a session you know you are unable to attend. You would need to inform your class leader in this instance.
Twins & Sibling discount
Reading Fairy offers local discounts for twins/siblings if brought by one adult sitting within the teaching circle.
A parent with twins/sibliings will need to have either another adult or an arrangement with another parent, should they need to take one of the twins/siblings to the bathroom. The class leader can never be responsible for your child.
Supervision and withdrawal of service
All children must be supervised at all times and not left unattended. The class leader cannot be responsible for a child at any time. Regrettably as our classes are designed for toddlers, older siblings cannot attend unless specifically invited.
Should a carer or associated visitor behave in a way that the class leader 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 your class leader will ask you whether you wish to renew for another term. The class leader 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
Reading Fairy will endeavor to run classes during bad weather e.g. snowy conditions. However should we need to cancel due to safety concerns, parents will be notified/contacted (please check your local 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 we cannot automatically offer cash refunds.
Parents are asked to keep their child 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 child at home if he/she or you:
- Has a fever or cough or has had one in the previous 14 days
- 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:
- Chicken pox
- German measles
- Whooping cough
- Scarlett fever

We cannot offer a refund for a lesson missed due to illness. You may offer your place to a friend, who also has a child, to the session. You would need to inform your class leader in this instance.
