While every care will be taken for children's welfare and wellbeing, neither the teacher nor the venue are responsible for your child/ren's safety 2. You must have a mobile phone with you - switched on - and be within easy reach in case of emergency 3. The class is only 1 hour long and is designed to be supportive and understanding of common ADHD behaviours, such as impulsivity, restlessness, hyperactivity and difficulty focussing. However, in the unlikely event that a child's behaviour prevents others from enjoying the class or from being safe, they may be asked to leave the room, and may no longer be supervised. You would then be called to collect them for their own safety. By booking the workshop, you agree to these terms - they are set out clearly to maximise the potential for a fun, productive and safe experience for children Location: Hometown Hub, Melrose https://www.hometown-hub.co.uk/melrose Parking available nearby
