1a. The client is fully responsible for any children in attendance at the event.

To ensure the privacy and safety of all children, no names will be linked with the imagery unless with prior agreement.
2. At the beginning of each event toys and equipment provided by Creative Little People are checked that they are clean and safe for use. Should any equipment get broken or damaged, please bring it to the attention of a member of Creative Little People staff so that they can deal with it immediately to ensure the safety of all individuals.
3. We encourage children to be kind to each other at all times and ask for the client’s help to ensure that any disruptive behaviour is dealt with to avoid marring others’ enjoyment of the event.
