Important Information:

• Workshops may be cancelled or postponed should minimum student numbers not be met.

• If you need to cancel a booking please do so at least 36 hours before the scheduled date so we can cancel if numbers are too few.

• When you first enrol, you will need to complete an enrolment form and provide a postal address.

• A safety check required by the Children’s Act 2014 will be carried out so that it is completed before you finish the Playcentre Educator Award.
