Where the customer changes their mind during the term/the child is unable to attend a refund will be given if a minimum of two weeks notice is provided.

Where the school/venue closes and gives us notice, where possible an alternative class will be arranged on the day; otherwise the class will be replaced at the next available opportunity.

In the event of a red weather warning or other force majeure any classes that are cancelled will not be replaced or refunded.

Cancellation of In Person events due to Covid -19 restrictions, Red Weather warnings and other Force Majeure situations

Anyone 4 Science will replace such cancelled in person events with online events of similar length and content at times as close to the original event times as possible. Refunds will not be issued.

Cancellation by Anyone 4 Science

Anyone 4 Science reserves the right to cancel camps, clubs and workshops where the number of children booked is not sufficient to make the event viable. We aim to give as much notice as possible. Normally a warning email will be sent 2 weeks before the camp start date advising clients that there is a possibility that a camp might be cancelled. A final decision date is then agreed with all concerned.

Behaviour Policy

We aim to have a few simple rules which everyone can understand. These are as follows:

Instructions from the leaders must be obeyed.

Everyone must be safety conscious at all times.

No one is allowed to leave the venue without permission from the leaders.

Most behaviour issues are dealt with by the club/camp leader with the child directly. The leader explains what the child is doing that is unacceptable and asks the child to desist from that behaviour. In the event of continuing issues with a child’s behaviour, we operate a 3 stage system.

Stage 1 – A verbal warning to the child.

Stage 2 – If the unacceptable behaviour persists the parent is notified at collection time or by email and a strategy to improve the situation is agreed between the parent and the teacher.

Stage 3 – If the unacceptable behaviour still persists the child may be asked to take a break from science. The length of the break is to be decided by the teacher. In some cases the teacher might decide that it is necessary to ask a parent to come to collect a child from the activity.

Late Collection Policy

It is imperative that your child is collected promptly at the end of science club, as our staff have commitments elsewhere. We appreciate that sometimes there may be circumstances beyond parent/carer control affecting the prompt collection of your child. If you know you are going to be late collecting the child from science club please call or text at the earliest opportunity and discuss with the club leader the arrangements for the collection.

No late collection fee will be charges on the first occasion in a term that you are late, however for subsequent occasions a late collection fee will be charged to your account as follows:

15-20 minutes late = €10.00

20-30 minutes late = €20.00

30-40 minutes late = €25.00

Unreasonable and/or persistent lateness may regrettably result in the terminating your child’s registration at science club.
