Terms and Conditions
In agreeing to attend a GrowFit class I:
- Release and forever discharge GrowFit from all claims that I may have or may have had arising from, or in connection with, my child and a GrowFit program; and
- Indemnify, will keep indemnified and hold harmless GrowFit, to the extent permitted by law in respect of any claim as a result of or in connection with a GrowFit class.
I warrant that my child has not at any time suffered blackout, seizure, convulsion, fainting, dizzy spells or any other medical condition and is not presently receiving treatment for any illness, disorder or injury which would render it unsafe for my child to take part in a GrowFit class. I have read and I consent for my child to participate in a GrowFit class and understand the risk involved and further agree to be bound by the GrowFit’s Code of Conduct and operating rules.
I acknowledge that GrowFit uses its best endeavours to ensure that the equipment and sporting facilities used in the program are safe and fit for the purpose and acknowledge that all sports are inherently dangerous. I have voluntarily read and accept the inherent associated risks.
Centres are encouraged to make space inside their centre where possible during rainy and hot days. If the centre cannot provide a safe location for the class to be run we will be forced to cancel the class for the day.
Due to the unforeseeable nature of the weather GrowFit can provide up to two make up sessions each term due to heavy rain or temperatures that exceed 35 degrees.
Make-up class policy
If your GrowFit trainer is unable to attend a centre for any reason, a makeup session will be held during the school holiday period. This time will be arranged at the convenience of the early learning centre.
We are unable to offer make up sessions for reasons not caused by GrowFit.
All classes are subject to change. While GrowFit uses its best efforts to operate classes as per the timetable published on this website, in some instances changes are required due to fluctuations in demand. No guarantee is made that classes will run per the timetable. Any changes required will be communicated to those affected prior to the date classes commence.

Parent Paid Classes
Each term costs $11.50 +GST per class multiplied by the number of weeks in the term.
Payment is in advance for the whole term at the start of each term as our fees are structured this way. Please enrol at the beginning of term to receive the best value for that term. Once term has commenced only enrolled children will be able to participate in our sessions.
To ensure that our customers are satisfied with our program prior to enrolling, we offer a free trial class for all children at the start of the year or when GrowFit is starting at a new early learning centre.
Unfortunately, we cannot take casual bookings or pro-rata weeks you may be away (unless greater than 3 weeks). Please refer to our make-up class and refunds policy for missed classes. All fees must be paid before the commencement of each term. If fees are not paid by this time your child may not attend any class.
Enrolment is assumed for the whole year so there is no need to re-enrol at the start of each term.
If you need to cancel enrolment before the end of the year you can do so by emailing email@example.com.
All enrolments and direct debit agreements will be cancelled at the completion of each year.
We are unable to provide refunds for sessions missed due to minor illness or short term holidays. If your child has an extended illness or injury (missing 3 weeks or longer) we are happy to provide a refund or credit once a doctor’s certificate is provided.If you are taking a holiday for 3 weeks or longer please notify us before the beginning of term so your payment amount can be altered. We are only able to vary this in very exceptional circumstances.
New Enrolments during term
If your child begins attending the centre after the GrowFit term has commenced you will only need to pay for the sessions remaining in that term. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to advise the starting date of your child.
GrowFit Coronavirus Policy
Health practices and procedures Effective illness and injury management and hygiene practices are promoted and implemented.
Offence relating to protection of children from harm and hazards
Health, hygiene and safe food practices
To ensure all employees and families implement appropriate risk management procedures to prevent the spread of Covid-19 or reduce the potential for the illness to spread.
Coronavirus (COVID-19) can cause illnesses similar to the common cold, but it can also cause more serious respiratory diseases. Most people displaying symptoms such as fever, cough, sore throat, tiredness or shortness of breath are likely suffering with a cold or other respiratory illness—not coronavirus. However, the threats posed by the virus mean serious steps must be taken to stop the spread of the disease.
What must employees and families do?
To comply with government guidance employees and volunteers and families must:
- comply with guidance issued by Government agencies, including in relation to attendance, quarantine and self-isolation. This includes:
- ensuring they/a child/a family member comply with isolation requirements and stay home, for 14 days where required, if at risk of infection from coronavirus eg they’ve recently travelled overseas, or been in close contact with someone who has the virus
- ensuring they/a child/a family member stays at home if unwell
- seek medical attention if they develop a fever, cough, sore throat or shortness of breath within 14 days of travel to an affected area. Call ahead before visiting the doctor/hospital to advise them of your symptoms, and wear a surgical mask when visiting the medical facility
- advise the service if they develop symptoms of the virus or are confirmed to have the virus while in isolation. This is particularly important if they have been at the service before isolation
- provide written clearance from a doctor after a period of isolation or quarantine confirming they/child/family member are not contagious and may return to the service.
Employees, volunteers and families must also comply with any isolation/exclusion periods in relation to coronavirus implemented by the Approved Provider or Nominated Supervisor including periods which exceed government requirements.
Implement effective hygiene process
The coronavirus is most likely to spread from person-to-person through:
- direct close contact with a person while they are infectious
- close contact with a person with a confirmed infection who coughs or sneezes
- touching objects or surfaces like door handles or tables contaminated from a cough or sneeze from a person with a confirmed infection, and then touching your mouth or face.
Employees and volunteers will ensure they continue to implement hygiene processes outlined in the Health, Hygiene and Safe Food Policy to ensure high standards of hygiene and infection control at all times. This includes ensuring they and where relevant children:
- wash hands frequently with soap and water including before and after eating or handling food, going to the toilet, handling equipment, using gloves, and after wiping or touching nose and cleaning up spills of body fluids
- cough and sneeze into their inner elbow, or use a tissue to cover their mouth and nose and placing tissues in the bin immediately after use
- GrowFit trainers have been given thermometers and will track their temperatures daily starting from 2 weeks before returning to class.
If using alcohol-based hand sanitiser in place of soap it will contain 60-80% alcohol. In addition, the GrowFit trainer will ensure daily cleaning is documented and completed regularly after each class:
- using alcohol based hand sanitiser before and after every session
- wearing surgical masks if a person with the virus or in isolation has been in the area being cleaned.
- wiping down and cleaning all equipment with alcohol spray and wipes after each class
No GrowFit trainer has travelled oversea since March , and if they do so, they will not be allowed to return to work until they have completed quarantine as per government regulations and returned a negative Covid test.
Information and notification requirements
GrowFit trainers will:
- report instances of (suspected) coronavirus to the local state/territory health department
- comply with notification requirements for serious incidents which include:
- any incident involving serious illness of a child at the service where the child attended, or should have attended, a hospital
- any emergency where emergency services attended ie there was an imminent or severe risk to the health, safety or wellbeing of a person at the service
Interactions with Children
Where appropriate, GrowFit Trainers will speak with children about the Covid-19 in ways that do not alarm them or cause unnecessary fear or distress. They may, for example, discuss with children their feelings in relation to the virus, remind children that the risk of catching the illness is very low, review hygiene measures they can take to reduce the risk of infection or discuss some of the good things happening in the world. Trainers will be careful not to speak to others in an alarmist way about the coronavirus if children are present or within hearing.
