ET littles is committed to creating a positive inclusive environment for its littles and staff.  For this reason, it is important that all littles and parents understand and abide by the company policies and guidelines as outlined below.

*IF CLASSES DO NOT BEGIN AT THE START OF THE CYCLE, CLIENTS WILL ONLY PAY FOR THE REMAINING CLASSES IN THE CYCLE”

  • All first time Classes require a non-refundable deposit to secure that date.

  • After the first lesson, students are encouraged to book Classes on their own with their Acuity account login, which will be created upon booking their first lesson. **Please advise management if you have any issues with this. 

  • Texts and emails will be sent out as a reminder, two days in advance.

The new packages have been formulated to keep the billing and scheduling more organized as we grow as a company.

    • 6 Lesson Package expires 3 months after first lesson

    • If a lesson is missed in the package without 24 hour notice, that lesson is considered forfeited.

  • If you choose to reschedule a lesson in the package, please DO NOT CANCEL the lesson in acuity. There is a difference between cancelling and rescheduling. Please contact management for assistance.

MISSED CLASSES:

Consistency and commitment are the keys to developing and mastering any pursuit.  Therefore, littles are encouraged to attend every class in order to advance their skills.  If a littles must miss a class, we ask that you please call, text, or email management with a minimum of 24 hours in advance.   *We do not issue refunds.  No call or no show classes are considered forfeited *

IMPORTANT: IF a littles IS SICK, PLEASE DO NOT COME IN. (SEE BELOW FOR MAKEUP CLASS POLICY) 

SICKNESS:

Parents or littles who are suffering from colds or other infectious illnesses shall not enter the space. The same applies to the teachers. An online class (via Zoom/Skype/Facetime/Google Hangout) is the preferred solution to this situation. Should the littles be too unwell to participate in an online class, provided as much notice as possible is given, every effort will be made to make up the class. 

MAKE UP CLASSES:

Any class cancelled at least 24 hours ahead of the scheduled lesson, OR if sickness or emergency occurs, a make-up lesson will be available at a time convenient to both the teacher and the littles.  Make-up options are strictly based on availability, so the sooner advanced notice is given, the more options there will be to reschedule. Typically, make-up classes will take place at an alternate time/day within the week, or can be given virtually. All make-ups are to be booked with office management. Cancelled make-up classes will not be made up. 

WEATHER CANCELLATIONS:

ET littles does not follow the public or private school weather open/close schedules.  In the event of extreme weather, the decision regarding class cancellations will be made the night before, or by 9am the day of classes. Notification will be called, emailed, and/or texted to littles, as well as posted on corresponding socials.

 

IF YOUR TEACHER CANCELS:

In most cases, when your teacher cannot be here, we will find a suitable substitute teacher and the class will continue as regularly scheduled upon notifying the littles.   If your teacher cancels a class, and we are unable to find a substitute teacher, we will find a make-up date.  

HOLIDAY BREAKS:

We will be CLOSED on all major Holidays including New Years Eve, New Years Day, Easter, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Halloween (up to teachers discretion), Thanksgiving, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day. Please advise your teacher and/or office management as soon as you know you will have to miss a class due to any religious obligations & holidays, so we can accommodate accordingly.
