Camp Terms and Conditions
- Registrations are on a first-come first-served basis. Parents on the waitlist will be contacted in the order we received the application.
Sign-Out • Language Kids Houston teachers will release children only to authorized individuals, as designated on the registration form. Only parents and authorized individuals may pick children up from the program. Parents must provide the name and contact information of any persons authorized to pick the child up, and that information must be provided upon registration, before the student is allowed to attend the program. • All children must be signed out every class by a parent or an authorized individual. Failure to sign your child out will be regarded as an “incident” and may result in suspension from the program, and Language Kids will not be obligated to refund for the missed day(s) of camp. • Only adults 18 years and older are authorized to pick children up and showing a photo ID is mandatory upon request. Parents must notify in writing if there are any changes in the persons authorized to pick-up their child. Phone calls are not accepted. Children without written permission will not be allowed to leave the school. Parents can notify Language Kids Houston in writing through any of the following means: Email: info@Language-Kids.com Fax: 832-201-7771
Late pick-up • If a child is picked up after the time the session ends, a late fee of $1.00 per minute will be assessed. • Late fees must be paid in cash within 24 hours from the time they were assessed. If late fees are not paid within this time period, Language Kids may charge the card on file for the amount due and if the payment is not collected, Language Kids may not allow a child to re-enter the program until the fee is paid. Missed days due to lack of payment of a late pick-up fee will not be made-up during another session or week.
Behavior expectations • Language Kids Houston language acquisition program will adhere to Language Kids Behavior Policy and Code of Conduct in order to ensure the safety of all the students (see below). Services will be suspended if disrespectful or unsafe behavior towards another student or staff member is displayed by either a student or a parent of a student. Parents must make sure their children understand the expected behavior towards other students and staff. All children enrolled in camp must be potty-trained.
In the event a child’s behavior becomes severely disruptive, unsafe to him/herself or others or the child does not respond to intervention, the parent/authorized caregiver will be called to pick him/her up immediately. If severe behavior continues, my child may be removed from the program.
Academic expectations • Language Kids Houston’s program is an academic foreign language acquisition program and its goal is to help students develop foreign language skills and cultural awareness. However, Language Kids Houston and its employees do not guarantee that students will be proficient in the target language at any point. Success in acquiring the language will depend largely in each individual student and the support he or she receives at home. • Although Language Kids Houston is an academic language acquisition program and the teachers will make their best efforts to help the children develop their foreign language skills, it is the parent’s responsibility to support children’s learning at home by following some or all the assignments and activities that the teacher will provide and seeking any other forms of support deemed necessary.
Special & Medical Needs • Our teachers are not trained or equipped to satisfy the special needs of students and no medications will be administered by the teachers during the program.
Refunds • Refunds will not be issued for non-attendance to one or more days of camp. Deposits are non-refundable for any reason. • If Language Kids Houston finds it necessary to un-register a child, a refund will be issued after deduction for classes already attended. If cancelling a camp, parents may receive up to 50% refund of the full amount paid if letting Language Kids Houston know in writing at least 14 business days prior the first day of the camp (not counting the first day of camp). Notices must be emailed to email@example.com. No full refunds will be issued.
