Terms and Conditions
LEAP4Kidz Class/Camp
Updated 5/1/2020

Thank you for enrolling in a LEAP4Kidz program.

By enrolling, you accept the policies and conditions outlined below. 

Class Minimum:  All classes and camps have a minimum number of participants to go forward.  If minimums aren’t reached, class will be cancelled and all funds refunded.  In some cases we may opt to run a program with less students, but this is not guaranteed.

Refunds:  If class does not reach the minimum for a particular session, a full refund will be given. If you cancel 7 days prior to the start of camp, a refund, minus deposit, will be given. If you cancel after the first class, a prorated refund will be given of remaining camp fee LESS $25 admin fee.   However, you must inform LEAP4Kidz at [email protected] prior to the start of the second class to obtain a refund. After that, no refunds will be given. Students who are dismissed because of a rule violation or disciplinary reasons will not receive a refund.  Camp deposits are non-refundable but can be transferred to other camps within the same camp session year and location.  There are no refunds once a camp session has started.

Authorized Adults:  It is assumed by LEAP that the adult that enrolls the child has legal custody and/or is authorized to enroll the child in a class or camp during the time specified.  Further, all enrolling adults are authorized to make payments and agree to all our policies at the time of enrollment.

Safety:  LEAP requires criminal background checks for Instructors, Directors, Managers, and all staff who will be on site for any duration of time at our classes/camps.  Unless managed by a sponsoring organization, LEAP will take attendance and inform parents of absence at the contract number given for all classes where students attend directly after school.  Parents are required to sign in/sign out their child for camp.  Children will not be sent to the curb for pick up without written authorization.  Teachers do not have any specialized medical or safety training and will NOT hold medicine for children during camp or class.

Class Overview:  LEAP4Kidz classes are an integrated learning program offering introduction to a variety of topics using Lego bricks as a learning tool to foster thought and creativity.  IN PERSON:  The class hour is structured in 3 parts: Lesson of the day discussion with the whole class; Project model building from a provided planogram completed in pairs; Creative free play (“Master Builder”) time. Children are required to engage in all parts of class.  Children are not allowed to opt out of one section without opting out of the class for the day.  ONLINE:  The class is structured for online instruction only, with materials being provided and online sign in required to access materials.  Lessons and build instructions will be available during the class/camp session only, and are not to be downloaded or copied in any way.  Some classes will have downloadable material at the end of the lesson for offline learning.

Lego’s are used for demonstrative and learning purposes.  The goal isn’t to create a complex model or follows a series of directions, but to think about the learning topic for the day using a hand-on project.  The complexity of the building varies from model to model as is necessary to demonstrate the larger topic of discussion.  The goal of each class is to get kids thinking about “how they would do it”.  Not every child will complete the class build each time.  The education is in the process.  Children will be challenged to problem solve, create, and find solutions themselves.  Children will also be asked to help each other and work collaboratively. Each child will have a different learning style and level of skill in problem solving.

Camp Overview:  Camp is structured depending on the type of camp.  All camps have team creation and sharing as a key component of the curriculum.  IN PERSON:  Kids will work in pairs or teams to create and problem solve.   Sharing and working well within a group is a necessary requirement.  There is not an option for children to be given solo materials if they are unable to work with the group.  Movie Making and Robotics will utilize laptops, webcams, software, and potentially the internet to teach the curriculum.  Children are required to engage in all parts of class.  Children are not allowed to opt out of one section without opting out of the camp for the day.  Children that have difficulty with sharing will be given time outs and it is the child’s responsibility for missed camp time.  ONLINE: The camp is structured for online instruction only, with materials being provided and online sign in required to access materials.  Some camps may require software download(s) along with online instruction.  Lessons and build instructions will be available during the camp session only, and are not to be downloaded or copied in any way.  Some camps will have downloadable material at the end of the lesson for offline learning.
