Illness: Making Rainbows believes that babies and young children should be immunized, and you warrant that the child/ren in your care will not attend if they are unwell, including communicable, contagious or notifiable illnesses. Under the current Public Health Act 2005, this legislation does not make immunisation mandatory and does not force a service to refuse enrolment or attendance of children whose immunisation status are not up-to-date.
If your child exhibits vomiting, diarrhea, has an excessive rash, a persistent cough or green runny nose or obvious contagious conditions, such as head lice or conjunctivitis or a fever over a certain temperature (typically 38C), please refrain from attending Making Rainbows sessions. Bringing other unwell children or siblings, who have been kept home from school to a Making Rainbows class is also not permitted.

Cancellation of classes: Making Rainbows endeavours to run every class we have committed to! However should we need to cancel a class, parents will be contacted by email and/or text. Making Rainbows reserves the right to cancel classes without refund in exceptional circumstances beyond our control i.e. unpredictable storms and bad weather, the sudden closure of a leased venue (meaning a hired location not controlled or owned by Making Rainbows Pty Ltd), other varied cases of emergency, or unforeseen unavailability of a staff member.
If class enrolments are not enough to operate at a venue due to unforeseen drop-outs or client shuffling, we can also cancel the session mid-term.

Trial spaces are not considered as ‘secure’ and if a full term client wants to enrol for the full term in the interim, they will receive priority. Trial spaces cannot be guaranteed during long mid-term breaks (during the 6 week holiday between December until January), as spaces fill fast and clients wishing to enrol for a full term enrolment will receive priority.

Please let the teacher know if your child has any specific allergies. Making Rainbows Pty Ltd takes no responsibility for personal loss or injury sustained during the session.
