Private Course Terms & Conditions

Terms & Conditions

  1. When booking a private School of Babywearing course, your course costs are calculated by adding together the tutor fee and expenses (travel, accommodation, etc.) and fees per learner. This cost will be provided to you in advance. You will pay a 50% deposit to secure your course. This deposit is non-refundable, except in the event that the School of Babywearing is unable to deliver the course. If you do not proceed with the payment of the balance, and rebook a course within six months of your original course date, we will reduce the balance payment by 20%. The deposit is payable on booking and usually at least 12 weeks before your chosen course date.
  2. The balance of your course payment (the remaining 50%) is payable 4 weeks before the course date (8 weeks in the event of an international course). If you have extra participants who book between the date on which you paid your deposit and this date, please advise us and we can add their costs onto this invoice.
  3. In the unlikely event of a course being cancelled by the School of Babywearing, we will refund your course fee in full or will rebook the course for mutually convenient dates. If part of a course needs to be postponed, we will do our best to rearrange this as soon as possible. (Please see clause 6 re Force Majeure).
  4. The course fee includes:
    • Training and assessment by qualified School of Babywearing tutors and assessors
    • A School of Babywearing course manual for each participant
    • Support from a tutor while participants are completing coursework

The course fee does not include:

  • Venue costs (you need to provide or book and pay for a suitable venue)
  • Accommodation and meal costs (except where stated)
  • Personal insurance
  • A babywearing demonstration doll
  • Any slings or carriers, unless otherwise agreed. Participants will need access to a small range of slings & carriers to complete Babywearing Consultancy coursework

5. The School of Babywearing® is part of Babywearing UK, which is a non-profit social enterprise. We understand that venue costs and other costs may need to be added to international course costs and expect all costs to be transparent and shared openly with course participants, so that it’s clear no profit is being made from courses. Extras such as demo dolls should be offered to participants as optional.

6. FORCE MAJEURE – A “Force Majeure Event” means any circumstance not within a party’s reasonable control including, without limitation:

  • acts of God, flood, drought, earthquake or other natural disaster;
  • epidemic or pandemic;
  • terrorist attack, civil war, civil commotion or riots, war, threat of or preparation for war, armed conflict, imposition of sanctions, embargo, or breaking off of diplomatic relations;
  • nuclear, chemical or biological contamination or sonic boom;
  • any law or any action taken by a government or public authority, including without limitation imposing an export or import restriction, quota or prohibition; and
  • collapse of buildings, fire, explosion or accident.

If a party is prevented, hindered or delayed in or from performing any of its obligations under this agreement by a Force Majeure Event (“Affected Party”), the Affected Party shall not be in breach of this agreement or otherwise liable for any such failure or delay in the performance of such obligations.
