Make-ups/Absences:
Families enrolled in our summer classes may schedule up to three online make-up classes for missed classes. We do not allow make-ups in our outdoor classes because we are limiting classes to seven households. Online make-ups can be scheduled on your TMC Dashboard. If you miss class for medical reasons, we will happily schedule additional make-ups for you. Do not attend an in person class if you or your child are sick.

Guests: 
Because we know that repetition is essential in early childhood learning, we do not allow families to attend classes as "drop-ins".  All families register for the entire session unless they are registering late.  However, online families with out-of-town guests, an occasional "extra" child (sibling/babysitting, etc.) are welcome to bring a "drop-in guest".  These online visits are a flat fee of $10 per visiting child and can be scheduled
on your TMC DashboardGuests will not be permitted in our outdoor classes because we are limiting class size to seven households.
