Under the new Government roadmap, face-to-face parent, baby & toddler classes will be permitted from April 12th and adult exercise classes from May 17th. Because pregnant women are still considered to be a vulnerable group, we will also be monitoring guidelines by the Royal College of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists. We will provide an update nearer the time.
Bookings & refund policy
The Government have said that they will be reviewing the guidelines again in early April, so whilst we are keeping everything crossed that we can go back to face-to-face, this may be subject to change. As we are all having to operate in very reactive circumstances with very short notice, if you have booked on to face-to-face course, our teachers will offer an online class as an alternative. As you are being offered a viable option, refunds will not be issued. All of our teachers are independent businesses and this is their livelihood. We thank you for your understanding and support during what remains a very tough time for all of us.
When we are able to return to face-to-face classes you can rest assured that your safety is paramount.
COVID-19 – risk assessment for face-to-face classes
All teachers who are offering face-to-face classes have undertaken a risk assessment and only will offer classes if it is deemed safe. Our teachers are certified in COVID-19 infection control and all classes and equipment will be fully sanitised and cleansed follow the highest of health and safety COVID-19 requirements.
Music & singing
Our classes will still contain many of the songs that you love! Our teachers will be wearing a suitable face covering such as a visor and all that we request is that singing be kept gentle and soft and focused on your babies. Guidance will be given to you by your local teacher.
As per government guidelines, we require that face coverings be worn in all communal spaces within a venue. As you and your baby are considered to be in one ‘bubble’ you do not need to face covering, so long as you are safely socially distanced from other parents. Your local teacher will give you guidance on this.
Mummy meet-ups & Whats App groups
Where it is safe to do so, lots of our groups have been arranging safe and socially-distanced gatherings so that they can connect. We also set up WhatsApp groups where mums in the classes can still connect and support one another beyond their sessions.
You and your families matter
The health and safety of your families are paramount and rest assured that no matter whether our classes are face-to-face or online we are here to support you and your baby in the very best way that we can.
Thank you for your ongoing understanding and support
