Registration

All registrations are done ONLINE only. Registration opens WEDNESDAY, March 16 at noon.

Classes will be filled on a first-come, first-served basis, until the maximum number of students for each is reached. A wait list will be created if a class fills. If any enrolled child decides to drop out, families on the wait list will be notified by the second class of the session. If your child is enrolled and decides after the first class that they do not wish to participate, you will receive a refund or credit for 75% of the remaining class tuition. You must inform the Extended Care Director before the second class to receive this refund. No refunds are available after the second class of the session.

If the minimum number for a particular class is not reached by Wednesday, March 30, 2022 at noon, the class will be cancelled.

Classes start the week of April 4, 2022, except for Creature & Figurine Creations with starts on April 12.  See the class descriptions for specific start and end dates, and for any days class will not be held.

Please email the extended care director if you want your child to go to the regular Extended Care program after the class instead of picking them up as soon as the class is over. The normal hourly rate will apply for time in after care past the class end time, and you must pick up at one of the designated pick up times.
