To support the health and wellbeing of all our Mini-Explorers and staff, Minitalia Lab will continue an enhanced cleaning routine and we will encourage frequent and thorough handwashing. If your Mini-Explorer is ill and exhibiting any of the following symptoms; fever, cough, sore or itchy throat, runny or stuffy nose, sneezing, headache, aches or pains, diarrhoea or nausea, she/he must not attend. She/he must remain home and you should seek medical advice prior to her/his return. Restrictions on access to the site for anyone other than our Mini-Explorers and Minitalia Lab staff may be applied. We ask that during your visit you comply to managing the occupational health and safety (OHS) risks associated with an infectious (communicable) disease pandemic by practising good OHS. Please refer to the Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) website for up to date information.

Workshops are not sold individually, only a trial workshop is offered at the special price of $25 per child. Workshops may run during Public Holidays. If there are no workshops on Public Holidays the term fee remains payable in full. If you join during the current term a discount of $25 will be given per each sessions you have missed.

If you need to change day or time, please advise Minitalia Lab: if we have availability you may be able to change it. Once we have changed your workshop at your request, we cannot guarantee that you can change back to your previous day/time and no refund will be given if this is not possible. Changing workshop may attract extra charges.FEE REFUNDS: There is no refund for cancellation. No refunds or discounts will be given for classes missed. If a child withdraws part way through a term, the term's charges remain payable in full. Minitalia Lab allocates a place in each workshop for that child for each term, and we engage teachers and prepare materials for the duration of the term. For this reason, we are not able to provide refunds. Fees are not transferable to another child or term. Due to the current restrictions for COVID19 we are not able to provide make up workshops. Upon a payment, in case of lockdown, Minitalia Lab will provide an online program, if the online program is not available Minitalia Lab will provide a credit note for the following workshops available. In the circumstances of teachers illness workshops may be subject to cancellation. In this case Minitalia Lab will notify you and provide a make up session but not refund. DISCOUNT: a 5% discount is offered only on the full term fee for a second sibling. A 5% discount is also offered for a booking of multiple terms when fees have been payed in advance and full. Discounts are not cumulative and not alway available.

You cannot photograph others at any time without their permission. Classes are only for children enrolled for that day. Siblings with their additional carers are welcome to watch (not participate) so long as they do not interfere with the class and there is room to do so. Minitalia Lab does not take any responsibility for children that are not enrolled and children that are not supposed to attend that workshop unless it is a make up session.
