Customers are expected to behave in a civilised and respectful manner at all times towards the Teachers, other customers and any members of the public who are on the Premises.

To comply with our ‘Safeguarding & Child Protection Policy’ and best practice, we request that parents/carers DO NOT take photographs or videos at Learnalot. Whilst our teachers will do their best to enforce a total ban on the use of photographic/film or video equipment by parents/carers at classes, due to the nature of their work and the concentration required during the delivery of sessions, we are unable to guarantee this, and your cooperation would be appreciated. From time to time Playtrain may organise class photo shoots, but only where all parental consents have been obtained.
Please try to keep noise and disturbance from the waiting room to a minimum to avoid distracting your child and others.
Although general advice will be offered, no requests for transfers, moving up age groups or sessions can be confirmed on the spot at classes. Absolutely no cash/cheques or enrolment forms will be accepted at the class.

If the response is not satisfactory, please send your complaint in writing to Playtrain.

The Parent agrees (for and on behalf of the Parent and the Pupil) that any claim by the Parent or the Pupil against Playtrain or any teacher, employee or agent of Playtrain must be brought within 60 days of the event that gave rise to such claim. Any claim made thereafter shall be time-barred.

We may transfer this agreement to someone else. We may transfer our rights and obligations under these terms to another organisation.
You need our consent to transfer your rights to someone else. You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these terms to another person if we agree to this in writing.
Nobody else has any rights under this contract. This contract is between you and Playtrain. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms.
If a court finds part of this contract illegal, the rest will continue in force. Each of the paragraphs of these terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
Even if we delay in enforcing this contract, we can still enforce it later. If we do not insist immediately that you do anything you are required to do under these terms, or if we delay in taking steps against you in respect of your breaking this contract, that will not mean that you do not have to do those things and it will not prevent us taking steps against you at a later date. For example, if you miss a payment and we do not chase you but we continue to provide the service, we can still require you to make the payment at a later date.
These Terms constitute the entire agreement between the parties hereto and supersede all prior agreements and understandings between the parties. It is agreed that no statement, promise or inducement whether written or oral alleged to have been made by either party and which is not contained herein shall be binding or form part of this Agreement.
The safety and wellbeing of your child or the child in your care is of the upmost importance to Playtrain. We have a responsibility to report any inappropriate or suspicious behaviour to the relevant authorities.
Whilst we will try to ensure you always have the same teacher in a particular class, we cannot guarantee this as teachers may fall ill, leave or cancel for personal reasons. On occasion we may also need to have a new teacher join or lead your lesson in order to complete their teacher training or assessments. This will in no way affect the quality of your lesson.
Our Classes are designed with a child’s physical, social, cognitive and emotional development in mind. Moving children into classes before a certain age could be challenging for them and detrimental to their progress. We have therefore applied a minimum and maximum age to each level, which is based around these considerations and must be adhered to.
We reserve the right to make amendments to our Terms and Conditions at any time to reflect changes in our business or statutory obligations. The new version will be posted on our website and will take effect immediately upon posting. If applicable these changes will be communicated to all our customers by email. If you book lessons after the new Terms and Conditions have come into effect as part of your booking process you will indicate your agreement to be bound by them. Previous versions of our Terms and Conditions can be requested from [email protected]
This entire agreement shall be governed by English Law and shall fall under English jurisdiction.
