Terms and Conditions

By purchasing a place with Messy Little Mates, you are agreeing to the following terms and conditions:

Stains or damaged clothing 

While we take precautions to prevent clothing getting ruined we cannot be responsible for the aftercare of any clothing items. We use all washable paints and materials but cannot 100 per cent guarantee they will wash out. 

It is recommended that your child attends wearing old clothing or clothing you don’t mind getting messy or stained.



Kids will be kids, they may trip and fall. However, Messy Little Mates requires parental supervision of your own child. This is not a child-minding service, you are responsible for your child at all times before, during and after the session. 

Allergic reactions

Messy Little Mates will aim to keep all set ups nut-free however if your child has an allergy please make the facilitator aware upon arrival. Messy Little Mates cannot guarantee what other children have had before class and if that will transfer to our setups. 

Reactions to food and products

We will be using an array of products for our session so please observe your child whist playing and investigating new things. Please seek medical help for any adverse reactions after class.

This is a very hands on class please keep an eye on your child as you the parent/guardian are responsible for your child. Messy Little Mates will not take responsibility for allergic reactions, or choking.


Please try and keep snacking before or after the play session and make sure everything is nut and dairy free.


If you or your child are sick please do not attend the class. As a hands-on class, germs are very easily transferred and you will very likely pass on your illness. Please let us know 24 hours before your class that you cannot make it to organise a make-up class or refund.

Fees and Refunds

Fees must be paid prior to attendance, no rainchecks or spot minding. Refunds will only be given if a make-up class cannot be organized. No change of mind refunds will be given. 


We take lots of pics of the kids getting messy for our website and promotional material. If you prefer not to be photographed, please let us know. Photo consent forms will be handed out at your first session.

Cancellation Policy

If the minimum numbers are not reached or in case of emergencies sessions may be cancelled. We will do our best to let everyone know prior to the session. A full refund will be given if the option of a make-up session do not suit.
