Drop Off – Youths
We require that you bring your child into the Artspace Lobby daily before each class to sign him or her in. Please see the Youth Schedule (above) for drop off times. Please DO NOT drop your child off at the curb or across the street. We will not be responsible for your child’s safety under such circumstances. If your child is a rising 6th grader or older, you may come in on the first day and sign a waiver allowing him or her to sign in (and/or out) without you for the remainder of the week.
Pick Up – Youths
We expect you to pick up your child promptly in the main Lobby. You will be required to show an ID. You will sign your child out with the instructor in the classroom. Please see the Youth Schedule (above) for pick up times. There is a $5 late fee charge for each 5 minutes after the designated pick up time. Repeated instances of late pick up will result in dismissal from the program with no refund. If your child must stay past 4pm, please enroll in the After Hours Program (more info below).
This is a relaxed and fun time from 4:00 – 5:30pm daily that includes art activities, games, and more. An additional fee of $25 per student for the week applies ($20 members). After Hours students will be signed out with the After Hours instructor.
Staying all day but don’t want to pack a lunch? Select from the nutritious options, provided by our lunch vendor. Vegetarian and gluten-free options are available. Lunch is $5.50/day or $27/week.
