How does my child sign up for Kinderdance® programs?
Some schools and child care centers offer Kinderdance® programs to all students as part of their curriculum, and some offer Kinderdance® as an enrichment or after-school program. Some do both! Go to the REGISTER page and find your school if you’d like to sign up and pay online for enrichment/after school programs. Call or email us if you’d like to have Kinderdance® programs offered at your school.
When will classes start?
A minimum enrollment and full payment of 5 children is required for a class to be scheduled and maintained.
What if classes have already started?
Your child can begin classes any time during the session. Pro-rated tuition and registration fees will apply.
There is a $25 annual registration fee due each year in September. Students joining in January will pay a $15 registration fee for the remainder of the dance year. Students joining in summer will pay a $5 registration fee for the summer months.
How do I pay tuition?
Tuition is due before classes begin. For your convenience, tuition will be automatically deducted from your credit or check card each month on the 1st.
Pro-rated fees do apply if your child starts classes later in the session.
Is tuition prorated if my child is absent or if the month only has 3 classes?
All tuitions are based on an average of four (4) lessons per month. Months with five lessons are considered to balance against those months with three lessons (i.e., those with holidays). Sorry, but no refunds or deductions will be made for days your child is absent. You are paying for your child’s space as well as for the services you receive. If your contracted schedule is not working for you, please call or email to discuss changes that may be possible.
What is the class schedule?
The Kinderdance® programs generally follow the academic year, with summer classes offered at participating locations. Elementary schools, child care centers and any locations offering the program can begin at any time.
Schedules will vary slightly among our various locations but generally they will follow the following schedule:
Thanksgiving Break: Thanksgiving Day through the following Sunday
Winter Break: Christmas Eve through January 1st
Spring Break: Same as nearest school district
SUMMER CLASSES RUN JUNE THROUGH AUGUST
KDCV follows the nearest school calendar in regards to breaks…. Thanksgiving Break, Winter Break, and Spring Break, as well as any other school holidays observed by individual school locations.
Total value of lost dance days due to holiday or holiday breaks has been considered and is reflected in the monthly tuition amount.
What if there is bad weather?
Kinderdance of Central Virginia follows the nearest school district weather cancellations/delays. There will be no make-up classes or refunds for classes cancelled due to bad weather.
Can I come watch the classes?
Yes! However, to ensure optimum learning for your children, we ask that parents do not visit classes until after the first four weeks. This period is when the children get used to the teacher and routine of the class. Our classes are structured with lesson plans and visitors can create distractions to a child’s social and emotional comfort. If you are interested in knowing more about how your child is progressing and what she/he is learning, please talk with your Kinderdance® Instructor. We invite all friends and family to see what we’ve learned at a year-end demonstration.
Will there be a recital or program?
Yes! We will have an end of year program, complete with costumes, each spring demonstrating all your child has learned!
How is Kinderdance® different from other dance/movement/gymnastics programs?
Kinderdance® teaches to the whole child. The curriculum was designed specifically for young children, and includes activities that help children achieve both physical and emotional developmental milestones. The programs also incorporate academic concepts like numbers, colors, shapes and words. For more detailed information click HERE to read the Science of Kinderdance®.
How can my school offer Kinderdance® as a movement program for all the students?
Many schools offer Kinderdance classes as a part of their curriculum, with weekly classes for all the students. Classes generally last for half an hour to forty minutes, and Kinderdance charges a flat hourly rate. Sometimes the school includes classes as part of their budget, and sometimes parents pay an additional fee. Click HERE to contact Kinderdance if your school is interested in finding out more.
If your child is enrolled in a school where you pay Kinderdance directly, you may withdraw from the class in the first three weeks and your prorated tuition will be refunded to you. After three weeks of class, there are no refunds.
Tuition and registration fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Notification to withdraw from class must be received in writing by the 15th of the month in order to stop tuition payment for the following month.
