Petite Performers Chiswick is a franchisee and licence holder of The Petite Performers Ltd.
Petite Performers Chiswick is responsible for all transactions and payments relating to classes, camps and parties provided by Petite Performers Chiswick.
The Merchant of Petite Performers Chiswick is Miss Emily Cardno and she is the Merchant Of Record.
All Petite Performers branches offer a one-off paid trial class, after which the remainder of the term can be booked in full.
BOOKINGS & PAYMENTS
All classes and trials must be booked through the Petite Performers website using our booking software. Class sizes are capped at a maximum capacity and your child’s place cannot be guaranteed until full payment has been received. Adjustments to the original booking are made only if in writing and at the discretion of your Petite Performers representative.
Upon signing up after your three week trial you will be required to pay a one off registration. This includes your free Petite Performers T-shirt or Dance dress.
Please be aware the we require a half a terms notice to leave your class.
Uniform is compulsory for all children attending Petite Performers classes from 16 months up. Please see our ‘What to Wear’ page and ‘Shop’ for more information on what is required and how to order it.
All class fees are non-refundable unless authorised at the discretion of your Petite Performers representative. Each circumstance where a refund may be requested is assessed on its individual merits and cannot be guaranteed. On very rare occasions it may be necessary for a Petite Performers representative to cancel a class. If this happens you will be refunded or credited for the class or invited to attend a suitable, alternative class run by your Petite Performers representative. You will be notified of this by either email or phone so please ensure all correspondence details are up to date and correct at all times.
If a class is missed for any reason you are invited to attend another class as a ‘make up’ session. This does not have to be the same genre as your regular class and can be a great way to try out other Petite Performers classes and styles. Make up sessions must be arranged and agreed with your Petite Performers Franchisee or Teacher ahead of time to ensure there is space in the alternative class. We do not offer a refund for missed classes.
Please do not bring your child to class if they are unwell and could risk passing this onto other children or the teacher.
DROP-OFF CLASSES FROM 3
All classes from 3 years up are drop-off and Parents and Carers do not stay in the studio during the class. We understand that at this age it can be quite new for some children and their parents or carers but encourage you to help us transition and get to this stage as soon as possible.
PARENTAL PARTICIPATION CLASSES UPTO 3
All classes from 6 months to 3 years require a parent or carer to join in the class and help guide the child through the exercises. Parents and carers are responsible for their children at all times throughout these classes.
The age groups and levels for all Petite Performers classes has been determined by Head Office. Your child must be enrolled in the correct level class for their age. There are times when our Petite Performers teachers feel it is necessary to ask a child to move up or down a level. This is discussed with the parent or carer first and ultimately agreed by the teacher. Parents and carers must not enrol their child in an alternative class without prior consent from their Petite Performers representative.
ARRIVAL & DEPARTURE TIMES
Please arrive no earlier than 10 minutes before the start of your lesson and leave the studio swiftly after it has finished as there is often another class to follow. Parents and carers of drop-off classes are responsible for their child until the commencement of the class and must not leave the child in the care of the teacher earlier than is necessary.
Please give full details of any disabilities or learning difficulties your child may have at the time of booking to ensure safe and effective teaching methods are maintained and your child gets the best possible care and attention throughout their class.
TALKING DURING CLASS
Please refrain from talking and chatting too much during the adult participation classes. If your child is transitioning into a drop-off class and you find you need to be in the room for a few weeks, we ask you kindly to sit at the side quietly, encouraging your child to join in. Children concentrate and are much better in a calm and focussed environment.
DISTUPTIVE & INAPROPRIATE BEHAVIOUR
We kindly ask all children and adults attending any Petite Performers classes to be respectful and courteous to other families and the Petite Performers staff at all times. Should a child or adult become abusive or disruptive, it is the discretion of the Petite Performers representative to ask that person to leave the room and / or premises. We want all our participants to have an enjoyable experience at our school. If your child is uncontrollably upset, we recommend taking them out of the class until they have calmed down.
POTTY TRAINING / TOILET VISITS
We encourage all children who are potty training to attend our classes as normal. Please ensure you take them to the toilet right before the class starts and be on hand to take them during the class should they need to go.
Please be aware that the nature of dance and drama classes means your Petite Performers teacher may, from time to time, need to have physical contact with your child. You must inform your Petite Performers representative in writing before the start of your first class if you do not wish the teacher to have any physical contact with your child.
FOOD & DRINK DURING CLASS
Food and drink is not permitted in the studio of any Petite Performers school. If your child is taking two classes back to back they may bring water into the studio with them. If children our attending our holiday camps then they must bring water, snacks and lunch with them in a secure lunch box. There will be specific breaks taken where they can eat and drink.
PHOTOGRAPHY, FILM, PRESS RELEASE
On occasions the children may be photographed or filmed during their class for social media, advertising or website purposes. By attending our classes and signing these T’s & C’s you are agreeing to this happening unless you have otherwise informed us in writing.
