After-School program-1


Please note: There is a minimum enrollment needed per day in order to run the program, and six week minimum participation (i.e. six consecutive Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays – or six consecutive full weeks). In the event that the minimum enrollment is not met for the day(s) you registered, we will notify you before the start of your 6-week block. If your school begins or ends outside the 6-week session blocks set by The Center on Central for 2013-14, we will ask you to pay a prorated amount for the time before Session 1 begins and we will prorate other sessions as needed to line up with your school calendar.

* In addition, “Pay for 5 sessions, get the 6th session free” is an option when you prepay for the After-School Program. The full-year cost is $4500, payable in advance. To be eligible for the discount, we require completion of a paper registration form and payment by cash, check, money order or credit card at our point of purchase credit card machine (on-line payment is not accepted for the discounted $4500 program fee).

There is an early cancellation penalty for 2013-14, as follows:

before September 3 – 75% refund
September 3 – October 15 – 50% refund
October 16 – December 15 – 25% refund

Full-year, prepaid registrants also receive a complimentary membership to The Center on Central for the remainder of 2014 and all of 2015 (a $148 value), where they can take 10% off all programs beyond the After-School Program and its “pull-outs” – such as Parents Night Out/Kids Night In, Saturday offerings, Workshops, Birthday Parties, Summer Creative Arts Day Camp and CAMP 24 Creative Arts and Social Skills Summer Day Camp.
