Registration

Go to Registration for details on signing up for lessons and refund policies.

Record Card and Badges

For all programs: at the last lesson a record card is issued to each participant indicating their accomplishments and a badge given if the requirements of the level have been successfuly met.

It's possible for children to work on two levels in the 15 lesson sessions (Spring and Fall programs).  When a level is completed a badge will be awarded and the child will begin working on the goals for the next level with the same instructor in the same class.

Make-Up Policy

If a child is absent, we offer our clients a make-up lesson with a maximum of two make-up lessons per session (not transferrable from session to session). If your child is entitled to a make-up lesson it is up to you to contact our office.

Make-up lessons are scheduled where there is space in a class of the same level at a time suitable to you. If we are unable to schedule a make-up lesson, we will put your name on a waiting list and call when a spot becomes available.  We will do our best to accomodate make-ups, however, there is no guarantee your child will receive a make-up.

If you know in advance that your child will miss his/her regular lesson for any reason - please advise the office immediately (preferably giving 12 hours notice). We have limited spots available for make-up lessons and your child's spot may be used for someone else waiting for a make-up lesson. By letting us know your child will miss his/her lesson, we do not automatically put them on the waiting list for a make-up lesson.  Please do not call and ask for a make-up if you have not indicated in advance your child was going to be away.

In order to offer make-up lessons, we need your co-operation. If you do not call in or let us know in advance of your child's absence, the make-up system will not work.
