Terms and Conditions
No refund will be provided in case of booking cancellation or no-show. However in extenuating circumstances, these will be considered by the course leader – please do get in touch.
Health & Safety Notice
Risk assessments are undertaken by your session leader. As parents and carers we are sure you are aware that although every effort is taken to ensure that our environment is safe and the props used are in good condition and age appropriate, accidents can occur to children in the safest of environments. Please ensure that you supervise your child at all times during the session as Water Filled Wellies cannot be held responsible for accident or injury incurred during our classes or at any other time in our venues. Many thanks for your cooperation in this matter.
Hygiene in our Sessions
All our session leaders are equipped to wipe down, clean, wash and sanitise relevant equipment between sessions.
We wash blankets and replace/check quality and cleanliness of all our props regularly.
We will begin the series of classes on the date set out in the booking. The estimated end date for the half-term is as notified to you during the booking process.
Places are limited and so we always recommend that you prepay for each half term to secure your spot.
If you miss a class due to sickness or holidays it cannot be refunded, transferred or carried over to the next course. If we have to cancel or make a change to the time of a class, and you are unable to attend the rearranged session(s), then we will refund you a pro-rata share of your payment which relates to those session(s).
If your baby/child is sick please feel free to call and let us know. If it is likely to be a long term illness then please call and discuss with your session leader as refunds and credits for long term illnesses are discretionary.
A NOTE about adverse weather: refunds will not be given in the event of adverse weather conditions.
Always liaise with your session leader or check your local Facebook page for updates regarding the safe access to venues and subsequent class cancellations.
Please do not attend sessions in the event of your child being unwell. We wish them better of course, but must ensure the risk of infections or communicable diseases spreading is isolated. In the event that your child contracts an infection please inform your session leader regarding the nature of the infection so that they can inform other parents.
Please refrain from attending sessions if:
• Your child has a fever or has had a fever within 24 hours of the session
• Within 48 hours of the session, your child has had an upset tummy and/or diarrhea
• Your child has a discharge from their eyes or heavy discharge from their nose
• Your child is showing symptoms of the following: (taken from the NHS Website – please see further
Symptoms appear 1 to 3 weeks after being infected.
Infectious period: The most infectious time is 1 to 2 days before the rash appears, but it continues to be infectious until all the blisters have crusted over.
1. Chickenpox is a mild infectious disease that most children catch at some time. It starts with feeling
unwell, a rash and, usually, a fever.
2. Spots develop, which are red and become fluid-filled blisters within a day or two. They eventually dry
into scabs, which drop off.
3. The spots first appear on the chest, back, head or neck, then spread. They don’t leave scars unless
they’re badly infected or picked.
Symptoms appear 7 to 12 days after being infected. Infectious period: From around 4 days before the rash appears until 4 days after it’s gone.
1. Measles begins like a bad cold and cough with sore, watery eyes.
2. Your child will become gradually more unwell, with a fever.
3. A rash appears after the third or fourth day. The spots are red and slightly raised. They may be
blotchy, but not itchy. The rash begins behind the ears and spreads to the face and neck, then the
rest of the body.
4. The illness usually lasts about a week.
5. Measles is much more serious than chickenpox, German measles, or mumps. It’s best prevented by the MMR vaccination. Serious complications include pneumonia and death.
Symptoms appear 14 to 25 days after being infected.
Infectious period: From about 6 days before swelling in the face until about 5 days after.
• A general feeling of being unwell.
• A high temperature.
• Pain and swelling on the side of the face (in front of the ear) and under the chin. Swelling usually
begins on 1 side followed by the other side, though not always.
• Discomfort when chewing.
• Your child’s face will be back to normal size in about a week.
• It’s rare for mumps to affect boys’ balls (testes). This happens more often in adult men with mumps.
• If you think your child’s testes are swollen or painful, see your GP.
Slapped cheek disease (also known as fifth disease or parvovirus B19)
Symptoms appear 1 to 20 days after being infected.
Infectious period: A few days before the rash appears. Children are no longer contagious when the rash appears.
• It begins with a fever and nasal discharge.
• A bright red rash, like the mark left by a slap, appears on the cheeks.
• Over the next 2 to 4 days, a lacy rash spreads to the trunk and limbs.
• Children with blood disorders such as spherocytosis or sickle cell disease may become more
anaemic. They should seek medical care.
German measles (rubella)
Symptoms appear 15 to 20 days after being infected.
Infectious period: From 1 week before symptoms develop until up to 4 days after the rash appeared.
• It starts like a mild cold.
• A rash appears in a day or 2, first on the face, then on the body. The spots are flat and are pale pink
on light skin.
• Glands in the back of the neck may be swollen.
• Your child won’t usually feel unwell.
• It can be difficult to diagnose rubella with certainty.
Rubella can be prevented by the MMR vaccine.
Keep them away from anybody who’s in the early stages of pregnancy (up to 4 months) or trying to get pregnant. If your child has had contact with any pregnant women before you knew about the illness, you must let the women know, as they’ll need to see their GP.
Symptoms appear 6 to 21 days after being infected.
Infectious period: From the first signs of the illness until about 3 weeks after coughing starts. If an antibiotic is given, the infectious period will continue for up to 5 days after starting treatment.
Antibiotics need to be given early in the course of the illness to improve symptoms.
• The symptoms are similar to a cold and cough, with the cough gradually getting worse.
• After about 2 weeks, coughing fits start. These are exhausting and make it difficult to breathe.
• Younger children (babies under 6 months) are much more seriously affected and can have breathholding or blue attacks, even before they develop a cough.
• Your child may choke and vomit.
• Sometimes, but not always, there will be a whooping noise as the child draws in breath after
• The coughing fits may continue for several weeks and can go on for up to 3 months.

• spread to other parts of your body
• be itchy
• sometimes be painful
Sores (non-bullous impetigo) or blisters (bullous impetigo) can start anywhere – but usually on exposed areas like your face and hands

The sores of blisters burst and form crusty patches
Scarlet fever is a contagious infection that mostly affects young children. It’s easily treated with antibiotics.

Discrimination and Behaviour

Parents and caregivers should ensure that their behaviour is entirely appropriate at all times, and refrain from behaving in a discriminatory or disruptive manner or a way which is likely to cause offence to anyone else. This includes refraining from using bad language. All parents and caregivers are required to show respect to all session leaders and attendees of our sessions.
Filming and photos of your child/children during class is permitted, however please be sensitive to other families who may not wish their child to be filmed or photographed. The session leader may request that photography or filming is stopped. Their decision is final, and continued participation in the class is contingent upon complying with the session leader’s instructions.
We will sometimes request that promotional film and photography is taken during classes, but we’ll seek permission from families. By booking with us you agree to the terms and conditions and take full responsibility for the wellbeing of your
child/children during classes.
We endeavour to provide the same session leaders throughout each half term, but we cannot guarantee that the session leaders will remain the same, and we reserve the right to change the session leaders from time to time.
