FAQs

Q:

If I drop out will I get a refund?

A:

LEARN Administration fees (currently $30) are non-refundable. Class costs are refundable until the late registration deadline listed on the home page.  There are NO REFUNDS at all after the late registration deadline.  This is due to the fact that teachers have already purchased supplies for each student registered.

Q:

Do I have to stay for all four class periods?

A:

No! Sign up for only the classes you want. You are not obligated to stay any certain number of hours and can start at any time. If your child is only interested in a class during third hour, arrive a few minutes before third hour and leave when you are finished. If you are planning to take a class during first hour, we ask that you arrive at 12:30 to be present for opening exercises to hear important announcements.

Q:

What do I do with my child that is under 3 years old?

A:

We have both a Toddler and an Infant Nursery for children who are too young to take classes. When you register for class, you must also register any young children for the Nursery.

LEARN has to adhere to strict Fire Code Guidelines.  When the Nursery reaches its class capacity, it is in fact full.  LEARN cannot add additional children or Parent Helpers to the Nursery.  Please note that the Nursery is the ONLY location available for young children, as even the Church Sanctuary is utilized as classroom space.  Parent Helpers may not take their young children into the classrooms where they are helping, as again every classroom has strict Fire Code Guidelines, and there is not room for additional children.  If the Nursery fills before you are able to register your young child, you will need to find alternative child care for the 10 LEARN days that semester.

Q:

I know LEARN is a co-op; how am I expected to help?

A:

Since LEARN is a true co-op and is meant to be a pooling of talents, we need everyone's help! When you register your children for classes, you will be asked to register as a Parent Helper, which involves helping the teacher keep order, taking young children to the restrooms, helping with crafts, etc.

 

Q:

Do I have to be present the whole time my children are at LEARN?

A:

Yes. In order for your child to participate, you must be present and helping the entire time your child is at LEARN. You may not drop your child off, or leave them in the care of another parent who is already at LEARN. If you cannot be present for some reason, you may substitute someone in your place who will fulfill your responsibilities. You can use a neighbor, friend, grandparent or adult (over 18) sibling. This person stands in your place, following your schedule.

Q:

What should I do if we have to be absent?

A:

If your family cannot attend LEARN one week and you know more than a week in advance, please stop by the administration office and inform the attendance secretary so that it can be noted in the attendance book for the appropriate week.  If you find that you cannot attend LEARN prior to Thursday of that week, please email or call the Assistant Administrator or the Administrator.  In addition, please contact your children's teachers to get any work that they will miss.

Every person is important and Administration needs to know if they need to find extra help if you will be absent so please be sure to notify Administration of EVERY absence, parent or child.  Thanks!
