Terms of Service

Fees:

We know life can be unpredictable but our fees cannot refunded due to change in circumstance or change of mind, so please choose as carefully as you can prior to enrolment. Partial fees and partial refunds are also not available.

Please be aware that term in advance and PAYG enrolment options close one week prior to commencement of term and require an ongoing commitment to the full term (cannot be cancelled prior to the end of term). Should you wish to limit your commitment, please choose a casual enrolment, which will remain open as long as there are places available. Enrolment options will be crossed out when sessions are not available.

Supervision of Children’s Programs:

Although our staff are highly trained, experienced, and qualified to provide high quality education services; Peaceful Rooms is not an ‘approved education and care service’. We are a community centre offering a variety of programs for children, teachers, and parents. Therefore our services are not subject to the requirements of the Education and Care Services National Law (WA) Act 2012 and Education and Care Services National Regulations 2012.

As such a parent or guardian on the child’s enrolment form must supervise the enrolled child/ren during all children’s programs other than our specialist sessions which have a specific developmental focus (such Children’s House).

Supervision is only provided by Peaceful Rooms during these specific development sessions. Parents must be available by phone throughout the session in case of emergency.

All employees of Peaceful Rooms have a current Working With Children Check as required for child-related employment.

A current Working with Children’s Check is required for Montessori Professionals Membership. Please email a copy to hello@peacefulrooms.com to confirm membership. Membership will be cancelled if WWCC is not provided on request.

Attendance & Illness:

Sessions are not offered on public holidays. Please check dates for our programs on our website.

We ask parents and children not to attend:

  • in the early stages of illness as at this stage they can be infectious and shed the virus, bacteria or parasite through coughing, sneezing, contaminating surfaces and personal contact
  • until they are symptom free if they have a cold or flu
  • if they have had gastroenteritis until they are symptom free for at least 48 hours

If your child is unwell please refer to these guidelines if necessary.

Peaceful Rooms does not require your child to be immunised to participate in our programs, however we encourage immunisation to protect vulnerable members of the community. We understand this is a personal decision for each family.

Media:

Peaceful Rooms staff do collect media of children and adults participating in our programs from time to time, with the purpose of sharing the benefits of the Montessori approach and the value of our services. Media may include photographs, video, quotations, drawings or other artworks. These are always framed positively and with respect.

Media may feature on our website, emails, booklets, social media pages, posters or other communications. Children’s first initials only are used in social media. We are happy to collect only images without faces pictured on request.

To make specific requests about what media is collected and how it is used, please email us at hello@peacefulrooms.com.

* Please note Peaceful Rooms may need to update the Terms of Service periodically as we adapt and improve our services over time.
