Terms and Conditions


 

Thank you for booking with Little Nessies. The Terms and Conditions apply to all group classes, private lessons and intensive courses booked with us. If there are specific terms relating to some class types only, this will be highlighted below.  

Holidays and Term Dates 

All term dates and scheduled holidays will be advised at the booking stage, at the beginning of every term and are venue and day specific. 

Instructors and Timetable  

Little Nessies will aim to conduct class using the same instructor on a weekly basis. Please note that due to staff training, illness or holiday cover the instructors may change on occasion. Little Nessies has no requirement to inform customers in advance of this change. 

Little Nessies reserve the right to change or withdraw classes from the timetable as per our business and staffing requirements.   

Payment Collection 

Our preferred payment method is by Direct Debit through our partner company Go Cardless. Details of the DD payment system will be sent at booking.  Alternative payment options, such as Paypal or bank transfer incur a £10 admin fee and can be arranged with the office by emailing hello@littlenessies.com 

Refer-a-friend discount 

As a thank you for introducing your friends to Little Nessies, we offer a £10 discount off your next term. To qualify, your friend must start their term and have made payment before your next term start date. The £10 discount will automatically be taken off your renewal fee. Referred friend must be a new Little Nessies customer. Only 1 friend referral and discount can be applied per term. 

Sibling Discount 

Should you have more than one child enrolled in lessons with us, the sibling discount will apply to all subsequent children only. The sibling discount will apply to the least expensive term fee. Sibling discounts are not available in private lessons or intensive courses. 

Re-booking 

Little Nessies automatically re-enroll all Nessies at the end of the current block.  Re-booking can be cancelled by emailing hello@littlenessies.com.  An invoice will be issued with new term dates and class time with a payment collection date for term fees. It is your responsibility to let us know if you are looking to discontinue lessons before payment is collected and the refund policy detailed above will apply.  

As your child progresses, or if any circumstances change surrounding the venue or instructors, we may change the class time when renewing. We will inform you of all changes to class times prior to the new term start date. 

Refunds and Cancellations 

Once the term has started no refunds can be given for the payment of term. If you miss a class for any reason, we do not offer any credits or refunds.  Refunds will only be granted at the discretion of Little Nessies in exceptional circumstances and must be discussed with the office. An admin fee of £10 will apply. 

In the unfortunate instance where a class has been cancelled by Little Nessies, we will credit the class towards your next term.  

Late Payment Fee  

In the instance of any late payments, an additional late fee of £10 will be applied.  Late payments are deemed as any payments collected after the payment due date.   

Direct Debit Failure 

If your DD payment fails, we will attempt to retry collection through our Go Cardless system. Should it fail for a second time, a £10 admin fee will be added.
