THE DOODLE PLACE POLICIES
CLOTHES WILL GET MESSY. Paint does not always wash out. We are not responsible for ruined or stained clothing. Dress child appropriately or send with a smock or old t-shirt.
THE DOODLE PLACE IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR PROVIDING MAKE-UP CLASSES OR ISSUING REFUNDS TO STUDENTS WHO MISS A CLASS DUE ILLNESS, EMERGENCIES, OR OTHER EVENTS BEYOND OUR CONTROL. COURSE REGISTRATION IS NON-TRANSFERABLE TO A DIFFERENT CLASS.
CANCELLATION POLICY (Classes)
All classes are non-refundable. No make-ups or credits are offered for missed classes after the session has begun. For multiple-week registrations if you cancel 48 hours prior to the FIRST class of the series, your fee may be credited toward another class of the same value. For single class registrations if you cancel 48 hours prior to your class, your fee will be credited toward another class of the same value. For a class cancelled due to inclement weather you will be notified and a credit will be issued.
CANCELLATION POLICY (Camps)
Because we offer a program with limited class sizes and sessions, and we organize materials and supplies in advance, your camp registration fee is non-refundable and non-transferable.
LOW ENROLLMENT POLICY:
We reserve the right to cancel any class/event that does not meet our registration minimum. You will be notified one week in advance if your class has low enrollment and an email will be sent 48 hours before the class confirming if the class will run.
PHOTO & SOCIAL MEDIA POLICY: The Doodle Place reserves the right to photograph or video classes, programs, and participants, and artwork during any class or activity. As a small business, our ability to communicate about our classes and offerings depends on our ability to demonstrate with photos and video. Photos and video are for promotional purposes and may be used in future publications and media communications in any format, including social media platforms. By participating in The Doodle Place classes and programs, you consent to the taking and publication of you and your child's photograph and video for these purposes. The Doodle Place does not have an “opt-out” option for photo and social media policy.
SICK POLICY: No person (adult or child) with an infectious illnesses should attend class. Please wait until all risk of infecting other students has passed before returning to class. No refunds will be issued for missed classes and make-up classes do NOT transfer to subsequent semesters or to enrolled siblings.
INCLEMENT WEATHER POLICY: In cases of inclement weather, The Doodle Place may cancel and reschedule classes at our discretion with the choice of a full refund or credit toward a class/session of equivalent value. The refund/credit is only issued for cancellations/reschedules due to inclement weather initiated by The Doodle Place.
BEHAVIORAL EXPECTATIONS: Students are expected to demonstrate appropriate behavior during class by being kind and respectful to others and willing to try each art project. Students must have the ability to follow instructions, stay on task during class lessons, and remain silent during focused work times. If they are excessively disruptive, a parent/guardian will be notified to pick up the child immediately if the behavior impedes the positive experience of the other students. The Doodle Place reserves the right to dis-enroll a child at any time that is unable to meet these expectations to ensure the safety of all children and to honor the time and practice of all enrolled students.
THE DOODLE PLACE HAS THE RIGHT TO REFUSE REGISTRATION TO STUDENTS WHO HAVE A HISTORY OF INAPPROPRIATE OR DISRUPTIVE BEHAVIOR.
