Hesitating to register for a program? 

Not sure if your child will like it,
or not sure when it will be a good idea to be in a group setting?

It remains our practice to offer a full refund to anyone who needs to cancel a program registration
before the program begins. 
Anyone who attends an initial session and decides the program is not right for them
can also receive a refund if they notify us right away that they are dropping out.

Please feel free to speak with us directly about your concerns!  We are here to help!
