NOTICE FOR PARENTS AND MINORS

DOES "EVERYBODY" INCLUDE MINORS UNDER 18 YEARS OLD?

In 2018 we had a good look at our responsibilities in opening up parts of our offerings to the children and young adults that accompany a parent or family member to our classes. We love having young people and family around us, engaged and inspired, but it comes with the necessary workload from the organisers to ensure their protection and we are now happy to announce that the changes for children's access to classes are ready to extend to all weekend classes. Weekday classes will remain exclusively for adults.

REGISTRATION REQUIREMENTS FOR MINORS & GUARDIANS:
All participants and members of the group that are under the age of 18 years old must have their parent or legal guardian complete a Registration Form on the minor's behalf. Parents will be given a chance to nominate another adult to attend and participate with the minor, by naming them on your registration form and by preparing, signing and uploading a consent letter to the same form. (You can re-submit a new form anytime).

USING DATA MANAGEMENT TO IMPLEMENT SAFEGUARDS:
We have now streamlined the registration data you provide us, so that we can securely manage it (away from Facebook) and check the names of adults attending with children to better work with parents to protect children, that join us on a Saturday and Sunday as a community.

To remain compliant with the law and responsible protection of the younger members we serve, we only communicate directly with minors in the presence of, or by sending communications directly to the legal or guardian.

AN ADULT BUT NOT QUITE 18?
If you are a young adult, but not quite 18 years old, have a chat with your parent/s who can fill it out this form on your behalf. If you and your parent prefer for you to attend with another adult that can be responsible for you (e.g. an older sibling etc) then please have one of your parents/guardians prepare a short letter (signed by the parent) nominating an adult person to be responsible for you and attend our Sunday group class to practice yoga with you. Parents don't need to mail the consent letter to us, they can simply take of picture of it and upload it to our form.

WHAT ABOUT YOGA TREKKING? CAN MY CHILD ATTEND?:
Yes. Younger members 7-17 years of age can also attend our Yoga Trekking events on the group's timetable, lead by the same WWC compliant team delivering our Acro Yoga offering. The price for children to attend our events is half the usual full ticket price, being $18 for Yoga Trekking and $5 for Acro Yoga or any of our other regular yoga classes.

WHAT ABOUT THE NANNY YOGA? CAN MY INFANT <7 YEAR OLD ACCOMPANY ME TO CLASS?:
Yes, but only at specially priced Yoga with Nanny events where we have organised for the safe nurturing of groups of 6, 12 and 18 kids. We pool together the cost of a police cleared and professionally screened nanny and offer you a combined adult and child ticket for $22, including the cost of the Nanny for minimum bookings of 4 people. We have our resident mum, Sere Roe who will be there with beautiful Calista (nearly 2 years old) who will oversea the Nanny and accompany the mums and dads in class, so that the teacher can hold the space for you and deliver a rejuvenating, smooth experience.

We contract 1 nanny per 6 children and offer you additional children's passes at $10 for each additional child you bring... so for $42, you can bring 3 kids, get a nanny for an hour and have an awesome yoga class outdoors to unplug for an hour, all taken care by us. We cater for children and infants 1-6 years old at this event. As usual we have spare mats and props on standby.

Our team is using the opportunity to implement outdoor, natural activities, whilst the children are with the nanny (and not just have colourful toys thrown at them, whilst their nature surrounds them).

IN TIMES OF JOY AND THUNDER:
Whatever age you are, enjoy 'being' yoga and exploring your body in a normal setting with a mixed bunch of normal people without worrying about the show of it all.

If you are a parent, young adult or child concerned about your child and want to get support from us, we are here to listen and help in anyway we can including providing access to youth support workers that we know and have screened for clearances.

A list of crisis support contact options (online chat, website info and phone numbers) now feature on the COMMUNITY DASHBOARD footer of every page of our website.

Any questions or queries are welcome at the following email: or by calling Will on 0447699871 for more information. An anonymous feedback email has also been set up if you really need to tell us something we could be doing better, to submit a complaint or report an incident or concern involving a minor. The owners or admins will not ever see the feedback or know who sent it but will get a summary of the key issue and non-identifying context.

CLOSING - To the kids: You are the leaders of tomorrow and will bring this earth back towards a balanced realm of love, creativity and utility using the evolved ideas you posses. If you are having a hard time with anything in your life, know that people really care and there is support there to, listen and help lift you back up. You are HUGELY important in our community and as Lamb from Owlkeyme says "If you think you are too small to make a difference, try sleeping with a mosquito for a night!" Never be afraid to ask for help from your parents, friends and wider family.
