Terms and Conditions
Panda Programmer reserves the right to cancel or postpone scheduled class(es) or camp(s), depending on enrollment. If a class or camp is canceled, parents will be refunded all associated registration fees.
In order to guarantee a spot in the next class for each current student, Panda Programmer automatically re-enrolls students for the next session. If parents would not like to re-enroll their child for the next session, no problem! Just let us know at least 10 days before the beginning of the next session and we will not automatically re-enroll your child. Otherwise, we will bill your credit card for the next session and your child will be all set to continue learning.
Your child’s right to participate in any Panda Programmer class is conditioned upon timely payment by you of the applicable fees due to Panda Programmer. All fees are payable in advance and are non-refundable except as specifically set forth herein. Failure to pay fees when due will result in cancellation of your child’s right to participate in a Panda Programmer class.
Late Pickup Fees:
At the end of class, please pick up your child promptly. A 10-minute grace period is given for any unexpected problems. After the 10-minute grace period, a charge of $15 per 15-minutes late (for each child) will be assessed to the parent when the students are not picked up on time after class. Late pick-up fees are due at pick up. Cash, check, or credit card is accepted.
For example, if class ends at 5:50, please pick up your child at 5:50. If you are late and pick your child up at 5:56, you will not be charged a late fee because this is less than 10 minutes late. However, if you pick up your child at 6:03, this is 13 minutes late and you will be charged $15 for one 15-minute block. If you pick up your child at 6:12, this is 22 minutes late and you will be charged $30 for two 15-minute blocks. Please be prompt. We don’t want to charge late fees!!
