SPEAKITALY NYC - Cancellation Policy for Children Classes (rev.12/2022)
RULES & DISCIPLINARY ACTIONSSpeakItaly 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 the 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.GROUP CLASSESAll requests for a full refund for group courses/classes (minus a non-refundable fee of $50) must be submitted to SpeakItaly NYC by email and be received at least 10 business days prior to the scheduled first day of class. If the request is made within the terms, a prorated monetary refund will be credited to the card used upon enrollment. No refund is allowed if the request is received outside of these terms.
In case your child, after attending the first class, needs to withdraw from the group for medical reasons or a proven emergency, we can give you a credit for the remaining classes to use for another group course for the following term, only when and if the group remains with a minimum number of three students in the class.
No refund is given after the first class or for missed classes under any circumstances.
SpeakItaly NYC reserves the right to reassign teachers after a course has started if unforeseen circumstances occur. If a teacher resigns, students are not allowed to request a refund nor they can entertain any paid teaching relationship with such teacher as he/she is bound by a non-compete agreement with SpeakItaly NYC
ONLINE CLASSES: No attendees other than the registered student are allowed during the lesson.
PACKAGES RENEWAL: Please be aware that all renewals for private or group classes made by email or phone are binding and subject to the cancellation policy signed upon enrollment and to the most updated one that is online at www.speakitalynyc.com
IN PERSON CLASSES: Please arrive 10 minutes prior to your class and no later than 10 minutes after the starting time to avoid interruptions during class. We can’t guarantee that she/he will be able to hear the doorbell afterward. If you know you will be running late, please let her/him know beforehand.
The starting date of a package must be no later than 6 months from purchase. Private packages expire after 6 months from purchase. No refund is allowed in any circumstance.
The fee for private lessons is charged in full if cancellation is made less than 36 hours in advance. Your cancellation must be received during business hours (9AM to 7PM) in order to be considered. We may decide to waive one late cancellation as a courtesy if a medical reason occurred.
If your child doesn't like the first class, we will assign a new teacher and waive that class. We allow up to two changes of teachers.
If you arrive late, the teacher will still need to end your class at the time previously scheduled.
If classes are suspended by the student for any reason for longer than 60 days, or if you cancel 3 consecutive classes, Speakitaly NYC reserves the right to reassign teachers and time slots.
SUMMER CAMP: All sales are final. There are no refunds or transfer of funds for other Summer Camp days or Speakitaly NYC programs.. If Speakitaly NYC cancels a program due to COVID, credits will be issued. 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 within two weeks prior to the beginning of the week.
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 prorated fees for campers arriving after the start of the session or leaving before session completion.
PACKAGES RENEWAL: Please be aware that requests to add days to the enrollment made by email or phone are binding and subject to the cancellation policy signed upon enrollment and to the most updated one that is online at www.speakitalynyc.com
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.
FIELD TRIP WAIVERSpeakItaly NYC will provide reasonable supervision of the participants within its care and control. The supervision will be appropriate for the ages of the participants, but Speakitaly NYC is not an insurer of the safety of any participants, nor can it supervise all movements of all participants at all times. There are certain risks in walking to the destination and being at the final destination. I agree that no employee or volunteer has any personal liability unless he or she has acted recklessly, wantonly, or intentionally injured my child.USE OF SUNSCREEN: Parents are strongly encouraged to apply sunscreen in the morning before dropping their children off at camp. Speakitaly NYC is not responsible if your child gets sunburnt
EVENTS, WORKSHOPS AND COOKING CLASSESTickets are non refundable nor exchangeable to other dates or Speakitaly NYC’s events. They are transferable to another attendee.
If the event is outside or the weather does not permit (NYS declares state of emergency) you will be given the option to reschedule. NO refunds are allowed under any circumstances.
COOKING CLASS: We understand that although Speakitaly NYC prioritizes safety for its students, participation in the cooking classes and other activities hosted by Speakitaly NYC (the “Activities'') involves an inherent risk of injury and illness including cuts, falls, burns, allergic reactions, and other risks associated with preparing and consuming food. We further understand that the Activities may include food preparation, which will require the use of potentially dangerous kitchen equipment such as knives (safety knives where practicable), electric mixers, blenders, gas or electric stoves (induction burners where practicable), microwave ovens, conventional ovens, etc., and that other children or adults will be present during the Activities and working with the same equipment. We elect to allow the Student to participate in these activities and assume full responsibility for any loss, property damage or personal injury that we or our property may sustain as a result of the Student’s being engaged in such activities, whether caused by the negligence of Speakitaly NYC or otherwise. We acknowledge that we know of no medical reason why the student should not participate in the Activities, including, but not limited to food allergies or sensitivities of the Student or anyone in our household(s). In the event of an emergency, we give our consent to Speakitaly NYC to provide medical care to the Student or us, and to give authority to any emergency personnel to render immediate aid. I fully agree with the terms and conditions above.
NYC COVID-19 UPDATED GUIDANCE to ensure the safety of our staff and students, Speakitaly NYC complies with the updated guidance issued by the City of New York for indoor spaces. You can review the most recent policy at nyc.gov/keytonycAs the situation continues to evolve, we reserve the right to cancel/postpone all in-person classes and activities, or to switch to virtual classrooms. No refunds are allowed for such situations.
