Please Note - As class numbers are so Limited there can be no refunds unless you cancel before the term starts.

  1. Drop off and Pick ups - Safety and Security Policies & Procedures 
  • Inspire students are under supervision whilst in the classroom during Art Class sessions only. While we endeavor to provide a safe environment, Jessie cannot be responsible for students outside their allocated class time or outside the classroom.
  • Drop off/Pick up - Inspire can be accessed from the car park behind the library (Kamo Road entrance) or behind the dry cleaners (Three Mile Bush Road entrance) Jessie Rose has car parks 4,5 and 6 for your convenience. 
  • Entry to Inspire through the Jessie Rose shop when it is open is also an option. 
  • If parking in the car park please be aware of other business's etc as to not block anyone in, or park in their allocated car parks. After 5 this is usually not a problem, but please still be aware. 
  • Please make sure your child is accompanied to Inspire by a responsible adult and is picked up on time. 
  • Do not drop off or allow children to wait unsupervised as children need someone to supervise them before Jessie arrives and invites kids into the class - Jessie may be arriving from or departing Inspire between classes, as in the unlikely event of an emergency there may be no supervision during this time.
  • Please make sure a parent is there on time to collect their child when the classes finish as we need to close the studio doors to clean in between classes. 


  1. Public holidays

There are no classes held on public holidays. Where classes fall on public holidays, the class will then go to the Monday or the Friday of that week. 

  1. Clothing in Class 

Students can wear what they like to class, but Inspire is not responsible for any damage to the student's clothing.

When working with acrylic paints aprons are always available for the Students to use in class.

Inspire is not liable for personal injury sustained or any lost, damaged or forgotten personal property, whilst on the premises.
    • It is the student's parents/guardians responsibility to notify their teacher in the event of injury/medical condition prior to class, as well as it is the student's parents/guardians responsibility to notify their teacher if the student has any special medical conditions that can affect their behaviour in class.

    1. Class Policies

    Class times - Students must be punctual to classes to ensure they receive the most out of their time in class, regular class attendance is also vital to the success of the student.

    Class sizes: To ensure students have a good amount of one on one time with Jessie, our classes are limited 10 students.

    If you/your child is away from a class, please be aware due to limited class numbers you will not be unable to come into another class to catch up.

    Disruptive students - During a students time at Inspire , Jessie maintains the right to dismiss any student who damages property or causes disruptions to any classes of a severe nature.  

    Please also be aware what your child consumes before class. This is simply to increase the ability of students to concentrate and to minimise the disruption in class due to the sugar effects on the behaviour of children.  

    Photography in the Classroom

    Photography of students in class is permitted only by Jessie - using her discretion, and Only of those who have consented to photos being take for Social Media etc.  (This is done during the enrolment process) Each week Jessie posts photograph updated of our time at Inspire HERE -  https://www.facebook.com/artwithjessierose/  We really recommend you follow this page to stay updated and to see some of your child's progress as the weeks go by.  It is also a good way to encourage students to be proud of their achievements and to show them how proud Inspire is to have such students.   Also by agreeing to social media photos, every now and then photos are uploaded to our website https://www.jessierose.co.nz/ or used for various forms of marketing- and from time to time photos may be published in Newspaper's or in a magazine write up.
