Terms & Conditions

Payment, Refund & Cancellation 

Once your deposit has been paid your place on a course is reserved. Deposits are non-refundable. The rest of your course fee is due to be paid a week before the start of the first session. If your course fee has not been paid in full you will not be able to attend the session. 

 

If your baby arrives early and you miss some or all of the course, you may apply for a refund of any of the sessions and these will be refunded at a pro-rata rate. In the unlikely event of the course being cancelled you will receive a full refund. 

The fee is 100% due should you need to cancel or amend the course date that you are booked into if made less than two weeks before the course starts. If a session for any reason needs to be rescheduled you will be given as much notice as possible. 

Group Classes- If you or your partner are unwell and unable to attend a group class, we will endeavour to invite you to attend the next available class. We will also send you all the class content and materials via email. 

Private Classes- If you or your partner are unwell and able to attend a class, the session can be rescheduled at no extra cost, at a time convenient to us all. If more that one session needs to be rescheduled and as a result Kinship incurs extra costs (travel, childcare, administration) then these must be agreed to a paid in advance of the session/s.
