Policies

Tuition, Fees, and Discounts:
All tuition and fees are due at the time of registration. Class reservations can not be made without payment. Tuition and fees are non-refundable. Tuition cost includes all materials, classes, and instruction for the class.  Some studios offer sibling discounts (A sibling discount is offered when more than one family member is registered, or if a child signs up for multiple classes in the same full session), ask a staff member if your local studio offers this discount.

Missed Classes:
If you have to miss a class please call to let us know of your absence. Due to our desire to keep the student/instructor ratio low, classes can only be made up if there is room available. Classes can be made up by substituting the missed class with another class offered on a different day or time. In order to make up a class you must call 24 hours in advance and receive verbal confirmation that there is space available. If a scheduled make-up class is missed, it is lost and considered void. All make-up classes must be made up in the semester that you are registered for. Classes that are not made up within the semester are considered invalid.

Withdraw:
No refunds will be given for a student if he/she must withdraw. We will hold the balance as a credit for one year. Our classes fill up very quickly, so if you need to withdraw please contact us as soon as possible.

Weather:
In case of bad weather we normally follow the judgment of the local school system. However it is best to call our voice mail service where we may have further instructions.

Holidays:
Noah’s Art closes on or around the Easter, July 4th, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Hanukkah, and New Years holidays. Specific closing dates will be posted on our schedules as well as on our website.

Transition Before and After Class:
Please try to arrive on time (especially with the younger ones). A late arrival is very distracting to the class and the child coming in can be apprehensive about being late. Our time between classes is limited and is used for clean-up and preparation, so please do not arrive any earlier than five minutes before your scheduled class time. Upon entrance sign in your child and an instructor will meet you at the gate. Parents participating in the two year-old classes are allowed to enter the studio work area. Parents of the 3-10 year-old classes are welcome to remain in the lobby area or use the class time to enjoy the shopping center, but are not allowed into the work area. After class no child will be permitted to leave the work area without a parent or care-taker present.

Sick Child Policy:
In consideration for all students, please do not bring your child to class if he/she is not feeling well. If a Noah’s Art employee notices that a child is not feeling well (runny nose, excessive coughing, overly tired…), they will call the parent to come and pick up the child early from class and a make-up class will be offered to that student.

Behavior:
Noah’s Art reserves the right to dismiss any child from class due to inappropriate behavior. If your child has any social/emotional behavioral concerns please notify an instructor prior to class.
