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 session (Fall Program).  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 accommodate 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.
