After-School Programs

Complement your child’s learning experience with a Mad Science after-school program. Our unique approach gives children a solid scientific foundation that goes beyond the classroom. Children engage in hands-on activities, watch spectacular demos, and take home an educational science toy every class.

FAQ

What is your refund policy?

Our guarantee is simple. If your child attends the first session of the course and it does not meet their expectations, we will refund you in full. You MUST call us before the second class meeting to qualify. Cancelling your registration prior to the start of the program will result in a $10.00 processing fee.

When do I pay?

Payment is required at the time of registration. Mad Science accepts checks or credit cards (over the phone, on the registration form or through our on-line registration system). If you would like to pay at a later date, please call our office to learn more about our payment plans.

+

What is your class cancellation policy?

We will follow the inclement weather and school closure policy of the school district in which we are instructing. We will attempt to schedule a make-up class, provided the cancelled class takes place at least one week before the start of the next program.

+

What is your student behavior policy?

We strive at all times to provide a safe learning environment for everyone. To that end, Mad Science has a zero-tolerance policy regarding violence of any kind. Children exhibiting violent behavior will be asked not to return to Mad Science class. There will be no refund.

Will my child be supervised during the time between when school lets out, and Mad Science class begins?

Yes! This is a perfect time for students to go to the bathroom, and/or eat a non-peanut snack brought from home.

How often do Mad Science after school programs meet?

Unless otherwise noted, Mad Science programs meet once a week, on the same day of the week, for the duration of the program.

What do the options for dismissal actually mean?

"Picked up by" please list all persons authorized for pick up.

"Walk" our instructor will release your child after class without a signature.
