Should I have an emergency and am no longer be able to provide my services, I will work with you to reschedule or refund your deposit. This would only be in the case of a true emergency and is never expected to be a possibility.

Should you need to reschedule due to illness, please provide 24-48 hours of advance notice. As a fellow parent, I understand that kids get sick and will work with you as much as possible on rescheduling.  You are allowed one rescheduling but please give me as much notice as possible.
