Terms & Conditions

For all Lively Learning Enrolments
  • Enrolment is conditional upon acceptance of the following:

    SAFETY

    Parents/ Guardians are required to supervise, and have the total responsibility for the care and safety, of their child(ren) at all times whilst they are attending the Multiple Intelligence Lively Learning Program.

    Parents/ Guardians of children in the Read, Write and Count Lively Learning Program are required to supervise, and have the total responsibility for the care and safety, of their child(ren) using the gym equipment at the beginning of a session.

    Never leave your child unattended on the gym equipment or be distracted by having a chat to a friend. Your child can fall in a second.

    Socks and shoes are to be removed on entry into the gym to prevent children slipping. Griped soled socks are permitted if necessary, however they are not as safe as bare feet.

    Be aware that some parts of the gym circuit may not be appropriate to your child’s stage of development. For children who move easily over the equipment, gym challenges are displayed near the gym equipment to extend the difficulty of the climb.

    Lively Learning is a nut free centre. Please do not bring any food containing nuts.

    Children in the Read, Write and Count Program cannot be left at the program if your child is anaphylactic or asthmatic and the appropriate medication has not been provided and hung on the hooks at the entrance to the playroom.

    Children under 3yrs need to be closely supervised by parents/guardians in the playroom as some activities have small parts and are not recommended for children under the age of three.

    FEES

    A non-refundable deposit of $50, or the full term payment, must be paid by the second last week of a current term to secure your child’s place in a class for the following term. If you opt to pay only the deposit, the term fee balance needs to be paid by Week 1 of the new term.

    A child’s place in a class is not secured until payment of the full term fees has been made prior to, or at, your child’s first class of a term.

    A child’s place in a class is only secured from the week of your first payment, NOT from the first class you would like your child to start the program. For example, if you want your child to attend the new term but can’t attend until Week 3, you must pay for Week 1 and 2 (even though your child didn’t attend) if you want to secure a place in this class. Until you secure a place with payment, the place in the class can be offered to another family wanting to enrol. Please note that missed classes can be done as make-up classes- refer below.

    A discount of 10% applies to the fee of a child for families who have second or third child enrolled in the program at the same time or for a child who is enrolled in more than one class. The 10% discount applies to the class fee of the lowest amount(s).

    A child can be enrolled on a casual basis (i.e. pay as you attend) if the child’s family is about to welcome a newborn during the term. Please contact Sophia to request a casual attendance.

    Siblings over 13 months attending Lively Learning regularly need to be enrolled in the program.

    Siblings not enrolled in the program- A gold coin payment is required for siblings over 13 months who attend Lively Learning on the odd occasion. After a sibling has attended two sessions in a year, $20 will be charged per occasional session attendance thereafter. If a sibling attendance is going to be more than once in a term, permission must be sought from Lively Learning to ensure that there is a vacancy in the class.

    Children enrolled in the program- A gold coin payment is not required for children who are enrolled in a class and attend their sibling’s class on the odd occasion. If a sibling attendance is going to be more than once in a term, permission must be sought from Lively Learning to ensure that there is a vacancy in the class. If there is a vacancy in the class, a parent may seek permission to bring an enrolled child to a sibling’s class on a more regular basis. This is not to be considered common practice but rather an avenue Lively Learning can exercise to support families in need. However when a class has reached its maximum participant number, this option is not possible.

    If you need to withdraw your enrolled child prior to the start of the term you will receive a refund of the money you paid less the $50 deposit.
    Enrolment is on-going until you notify Lively Learning that your child is not continuing. Failure to notify Lively Learning that your child is not enrolling in the following term, could result in a late notification fee as a place would have be held for your child and therefore not available for another child to take.
    Please put exact cash payments in an envelope and place in the centre deposit box. Cheques are payable to Lively Learning.

    Internet banking details are as follows: BSB NO: 033-028 ACCOUNT NO: 251427

    In the internet transaction, please state your child’s first name/your first name. e.g. Matthew / Karen.

    If payment of fees is not received for services provided, Lively Learning reserves the right to impose a $50 late fee payment and an additional 10% fee for each week payment is not received.

    As a bonus, a child enrolled in a Read, Write and Count class can attend their younger sibling’s Multiple Intelligence class for free UNLESS there is not a place available in the class. Also, if initially there is a space in a class for the older sibling to attend for free but then the older sibling is taking the last space wanted by a paying customer, the family with the older sibling will be given the first option to pay for their older child to continue to attend.

    MISSED CLASSES

    If you are unable to attend your session, please notify Sophia so that other parents can do make-up lessons.

    There are no fee refunds or discounts due to missed classes. However each child is entitled to a maximum of 2 make up sessions per term. Missed sessions need to be made up in the term they were missed, unless otherwise negotiated. Please note that if your child is away for a prolonged time due to illness or other special circumstances, please speak with Sophia.

    Before attending a make-up session please book a time with Sophia to ensure space availability.

    Lively Learning is closed on school and public holidays, unless otherwise notified.

    • 1st preference is given to a child currently enrolled in the class.
