Frequently Asked Class Questions

Dear Parents: the following information will be helpful when you register your child for our class.

You will receive an informational email before your child's class start that will include the room number, letter to your homeroom teacher, specific pick up proceedure, and more.

Letter to your child's Homeroom Teacher

If your child is taking our class at a public school, please print this note* and fill it out and give to your child's homeroom teacher notifying them that your child will be attending the Imagine That! Class every week. You will just need to print it out and send it in to your school. We will also notify all teachers, Prime Time, ASP and other After School Program Directors of the children that are in our class. This form will be sent to you with your class information email.

Please be advised that even with these precautions, if your child is a bus rider, your child may be placed on the bus by accident, especially the first week. Although this is a rare occurrence, you may want to be home in case this happens. It is helpful to remind your child to stay at school the morning of the class every week. You also may want to tell the Prime Time Director. It is not uncommon for our fax to Prime Time to get sent to the wrong program.

Pick Up Procedure

Unless your are directed differently, you may pick your child up in the classroom the first week. After that, the teacher will let you know if the children will be brought to the front entrance or some other location for pickup.

If your child is not in Prime Time or other after school program, you will need to pick your child up in the assigned room at the end of the program (unless directed differently in your confirmation email. Please note the end time on the Schedule Page. Please remember that there is a late fee of $1/minute for pick-up. Many of our teachers have children that they need to pick-up immediately after class and some have second classes at other locations. I am sure you understand the need for them to leave on time.

Who can pick up your child

Your child will not be allowed to go home with anyone that was not listed on your registration form or otherwise indicated to us without written permission. If you wish to add another name permanently, please send it to us by email. If it is a one-time situation, please send the note with your child and make sure that they keep it with them until the Imagine That! Class. If given to their homeroom teacher, it may never make it to us in time.

After School Programs

If your child is in PrimeTime or another after school program, we will take them back to the program after class. We will inform them ahead of time that your child is in our class, but it would be a good idea for you to let them know as well.

Snack

If you wish your child to have a snack, please send one that is easy to eat and not messy.

Information on what we are studying

We will periodically be sending information about what we are doing in class via email.

Behavior Contract and Liability Release form

You will need to agree to our behavior contract and Liability release form to register for our programs. You can see this form here.

Parent Feed Back

We always want to hear feedback about our program. We will send an evaluation form at the end of the session, but please feel free to let me know how your child is enjoying the class. Please click here for our parent feedback form.

Payments

If all payments will be by credit card, payments may be divided with half due before the start of classes. The remainder will be automatically charged to the same credit card approximatly 1 month after class starts.

The fee for the sessions will vary depending on the number of classes being offered. This is due solely to the school schedule of holidays and other days when school is not in session. For instance, if there is no class on a particular date due to a scheduled school closure (e.g. teacher workday, holiday), then the number of classes will be reduced and the fee adjusted accordingly.

Refunds

All refunds must be requested in writing by email.

If you cancel at least one week prior to the start of a session, you will receive a refund of all that has been paid less the $60.00 deposit.

If you cancel less than one week prior to the start of a session or after a session has started, there will be no refund issued.

We look forward to a great year with your child!
