Little Play is committed to creating and maintaining a safe environment for our Little Play Community.

We have developed these Rules of Play to and help outline the responsibilities of each member of our community.

If you have any questions, please contact us via: [email protected]

CHILD SUITABILITY & SUPERVISION RESPONSIBILITY

Whilst we will take all reasonable steps to ensure a safe play environment, Participation in Little Play classes is at your own risk.

Class curriculums are developed by both primary school educator and occupational therapists and facilitated by appropriately qualified educators.

Due to the nature of the Classes, participation will be required by both parents/guardians and children. Parents/ Guardian are solely responsible for assessing both their own, and their child’s ability, age and fitness to participate in any particular class and book into appropriate classes.

Information about each class can be found on our website.

Where Little Play team members observe that a Child or Parent is unable to participate in part or all of a class, or where they have brought more than one child, they may privately ask the Parent to sit out or rebook into another class.

It is a condition of entry that each child is always supervised and remains the always remain the responsibility of their respective Parent/Guardian during their time at Little Play. This includes that Parents/Guardians must remain with their child during the class times. At no time is a child permitted to be alone or unsupervised.

Little Play is not and does not have childcare or creche facilities.
