We try to ensure that all activities run smoothly to ensure that children are able to experience all of the planned activities and have multiple checks in place to prevent disappointment, however there some rare situation where a particular activity is unable to be run - usually this is due to a safety concern caused by to the weather or a provider becoming unwell/delayed.

Should this occur we will attempt to provide an alternative activity on the day to ensure everyone leaves with a smile. Alternatively, we may need to postpone the activity for another suitable day. In either scenario, we will communicate the change to you via phone call, email or SMS with the updated plans.
