Booking Alterations / Late Bookings
For holiday club bookings, alterations will only ever be made subject to availability and with a minimum of 7 full days notice before the day your child is due to attend. Rainbow Factory reserve the right to charge an administration fee of £10 for this service.
Cancellation / Refund Policy
It is not the Rainbow Factory's policy to issue refunds for any cancellations or child's sickness/injury leading to them being unable to attend. We are also not liable for the Holiday Club being cancelled beyond our control.
Please ensure that children do not bring valuable toys and belongings with them as we cannot be held responsible if they go missing. We cannot guarantee the return of lost property, but will endeavour to return items on request that we are able to identify. Parents will be required to pay the cost of postage. Rainbow Factory will keep lost property for a period of four weeks only. If it is left unclaimed after this period has expired, Rainbow Factory will distribute the lost property to local charities.
From time to time we take photographs which may be used for marketing and promotional purposes. If you would rather your child was not included in any photographs we must be informed in writing before commencement of your booking.
If you book by telephone we will ask you for relevant medical information, allergies, additional needs and dietary restrictions regarding your child. If you book online the same information is requested at point of registering your child. If full information is not provided this may result in that child being excluded from certain activities, or if it felt necessary, excluded from using Rainbow Factory Holiday Club. In such circumstances no refund or credit will be paid. Rainbow Factory reserve the right to cancel a booking at any time where there has been a failure to provide full information about a child.
Rainbow Factory reserve the right to charge a fee for late collection of any children. If a child/children is collected after the allocated collection time identified on booking, the parent/guardian will be subject to an immediate charge of £8 per child. An additional £8 will be charged for every half hour that passes, up until collection. The parent/guardian will be expected to pay the late fee at point of collection.
Rainbow Factory staff have a duty to respond if they suspect a child in their care may be suffering from abuse, or if a child makes a disclosure about abuse. In this event the relevant staff will follow the Safeguarding Children's Policy as detailed in our policies and procedures.
Ratios /Age Groups
Rainbow Factory ratio of staff to children normally exceeds all statutory requirements. The actual ratio varies between activities and age groups. Rainbow Factory does not offer any higher staff ratio than 1:8, irrespective of any child's additional needs unless arranged and agreed previously.
Rainbow Factory does not accept liability for personal injury or death of any participants unless directly caused by the proven negligence of the company or its servants.
All children in our care are covered by our Public Liability Insurance.
The Rainbow Factory has a strict no bullying policy. If an incident does occur there will be communication between the parent/ guardian of the child regarding the matter. The Rainbow Factory reserves the right to exclude any child for any reason at its absolute discretion.
Furthermore, the Rainbow Factory reserves the right to exclude or refuse any person without notice, if we consider that their presence compromises the good atmosphere of the club. Transport home will be the responsibility of the parent and no refund/credit will be available.
Rainbow Factory reserves the right to amend its services and activity programme, content, times, dates and venue in the event of unsuitable weather conditions, failure of equipment, building faults and any other operational faults that may arise from time to time, without refund or compensation to the customer.
