What if my child misses a class?

In order for your child to get the most out of their class, it is important that students attend class each week. However, if your child is sick, please contact the office via telephone or email and we will advise the teacher. If you are planning to be away, please advise the teacher and/or the office of specific dates and reason for absence.

What if my child is not enjoying class?

We will do our best to find a class that works better to meet the needs of the student. Should that not work out, we have a cancellation policy in place. 30 day written notice dated the first of the month is required.
