• Listen and follow instructions
• Participate in class activities

Does the Junior School provide before-class or after-class care?
No. Children may be dropped off no earlier than 15 minutes before their scheduled class time and must be picked up promptly after class.
The class my child wants to take is full. Is there anything I can do to get him/her in this class?
After a class has reached the maximum enrollment, no additional students may register. There is a waiting list of three students per class. If space becomes available, these students will be called in the order their registrations were received.
May I register my gifted child for an older age group?
No. Age requirements are strictly enforced and are non-negotiable. All children must be registered in their correct age groups.
May I stay in the classroom with my child?
No. Independent learning and socialization are an essential part of their art class experience. If you feel that your child is unable to remain in the classroom for more than a few minutes without you, you may want to enroll in a parent/child class. The Junior School offers a variety of parent/child classes and workshops. See the front office for details.
May I leave my child at the drop-off door at class time? May I pick up my child there?
Not if your child is registered for a class in the 4–6 age group. All children ages 4–6 must be dropped off and picked up at the classroom each class meeting. Children in all other age groups may utilize the covered drop-off at the corner of Bayard and Bartlett streets (entrance on Berthea).
Do you have change for the vending machines?
No. Please provide your child with change for the vending machines.
A friend or relative is visiting from out of town. May he/she attend class as a guest with my child?
No. Only registered participants may attend class. Guests are not allowed in the classroom.
