Centering on Children makes every effort to ensure that you get your order in a safe and timely manner. Should packages become lost during shipment, we will
track them to the port of entry in your country. Once it has been
determined that the packages have arrived at the port of entry, the
customer assumes responsibility for tracking packages from the point of
entry to their final destination.
What follows is some useful information to consider when ordering from us.
Your Estimate will include a link to "Buy Now" via Paypal, using your

Centering on Children, Inc. uses the US Postal Service for shipping ShoeboxTasks outside the continental United States. Packages are sent by Air Parcel Post, approximate 10 days delivery to your country. Your country's postal protocol will determine the delivery time thereafter. Due to the high costs for mailing these activities, handling charges are kept to an absolute minimum.
The US Postal Service is responsible for goods shipped to the foreign country’s port of entry, from which point your country’s own mail service assumes responsibility for delivering packages to their final destination. You, the customer, will pay for any taxes/fees peculiar to the country of destination at time of receipt. Please research your country's customs fees before ordering--we have no way of knowing what, if any, fees apply. Packages "unclaimed" due to unpaid customs/taxes are returned to Centering on Children, and you will be responsible for costs of re-shipping the order if you wish to receive it.
Orders originating within Ireland, Scotland, and England (and perhaps other countries) may be eligible for exemption from paying these fees. Application should be made at a local VAT office for an Import Duty Exemption Certificate. Submit this completed certificate with your order form. We will post the certificate on the box containing the materials being sent to you. There should not be any additional import fees/collections once this is done. If charged, reimbursement for these fees from your country is possible but we understand it is a long process.
