How do I ensure that my child is exploring safely? 
We sanitise the Visual Arts Space thoroughly after every session to ensure that it is safe before the next group arrives.

The accompanying parent/adult would know your child/ren best so full parental supervision is mandatory to ensure the safety of your child/ren. While we encourage children to have the freedom to explore, they do not have the freedom to destroy. If any structures are found to be damaged on purpose, penalty charges shall apply. All children must be accompanied by an adult at all times.
