Children are supervised when at WSA, during class time. A tutor or staff member will ensure that all children are collected by a parent or designated guardian. Wherever practicable, tutors and staff take steps to ensure they are not in a situation where they are alone with a child.
All our classes/workshops and events require a minimum number of participants to be financially viable. Regrettably, there are occasions when we need to cancel classes/workshops as they have not met that minimum number. If that happens then we will refund you in full.
If you change your mind about a class/workshop we need 5 days advance notice. This is so we have time to sell your place. Otherwise, one less person in a class or workshop may mean that we’re not covering our costs and the class/workshop may no longer be viable.
If you do cancel we will make a refund (less a $15 admin fee, or $10 if the cost of the class/workshop is less than $60). Otherwise, you can transfer to another current class/workshop if space is available.
We cannot issue a refund or a transfer if you cancel less than 5 days in advance or once the class/workshop has started unless organised with Management.
