Speakitaly NYC is not responsible for providing make-ups or issuing refunds for camp days missed as a result of vacation plans, scheduling conflicts, illness, emergencies, or other events beyond our control. There are no pro-rated fees for campers arriving after the start of the session or leaving before session completion.

CANCELLATION POLICY: All sales are final.  100% refundable up to 10 business days after enrollment minus a $99 restocking fee. If after attending the first class, your child needs to withdraw from the group, There are no refunds or transfer of funds for other Summer Camp days or Speakitaly NYC programs. If Speakitaly cancels a program due to low enrollment, a full monetary refund will be provided unless the parent or guardian agrees in receiving school credits. Such cancellation notice will be received at least a week prior to the beginning of the week.

LATE FEE: For each child signed out after the program's end time, the parent/guardian will be charged a late fee of $5.00. The parent/guardian will be charged an additional $1.00 for every minute after the initial 15 minutes for each child. A late fee must be paid for a child to continue in the program.

RULES AND DISCIPLINARY: SpeakItaly NYC is committed to providing an environment that fosters the physical and emotional well-being of all program participants. Creating a safe, enjoyable environment is the responsibility of Speakitaly NYC staff as well as program participants, and families. Discipline Actions are limited to verbal warnings, individual counseling, time out, and parent contact. Most discipline issues are minor and are easily resolved by the staff, the child, and parents. However, serious infractions may result in immediate suspension or termination from the program. Examples include but aren’t limited to intentionally threatening/hurting others. Our discipline actions are meant to provide opportunities for children to learn responsibility and concern for others. All program sites are violence-free. We expect all staff members, program participants, and families to be respectful of others and the property of others.

This authorization extends to all media, formats, and markets that are now known or later discovered. This authorization shall continue indefinitely unless I otherwise revoke this authorization in writing.

FIELD TRIP WAIVER: SpeakItaly NYC will provide reasonable supervision of the participants within its care and control.
