Cancellations received one week prior to class start date will receive a 50% refund
Cancellations received the week of class start date will not receive a refund
Inclement Weather Policy
Inclement Weather Policy for In-school Classes
If your school has an inclement weather policy that covers refunds, Little Hands Creations will follow that policy.
If your school does not have a policy, the following will be adhered to:
If SPS cancels enrichment programs for weather conditions, we will work with the school to schedule a make-up class. If a make-up class cannot be scheduled, we will not issue refunds.
However, if SPS is running enrichment programs, but Little Hands Creations needs to cancel due to weather conditions, and a make-up class is not able to be scheduled, refunds will be issued.
Inclement Weather and Park Playtime Policies for LHC Summer Camps
Little Hands Creations monitors summer weather conditions closely so we can prepare for heavy rain, extreme heat, or poor air quality.
During nice weather, outdoor summer camps and Lunch Bunch will run at Cowen Park as scheduled, and indoor camps may have the option to move outdoors, depending on the curriculum and at the discretion of LHC staff.
During inclement weather, outdoor summer camps and Lunch Bunch will relocate indoors to our studio at 5901 Roosevelt Way NE, Suite 101B. Our studio is air conditioned and has an additional air purifier.
Walk Home Authorization
If your child is able to walk home by themselves, we need that authorization in writing. Please indicate this on your registration platform, or email us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org
Missing the first sewing class
Things happen! Kids get sick! We know that things come up. If your child needs to miss the first class of our machine sewing program, we have two options.
If you have a sewing machine at home, we can email you our paper sewing template and a truncated version of the beginner sewing procedure. You can work through the process with your student and they can bring in their completed paper sewing to the second class and join the group.
If you do not have a sewing machine, you can join one of our make-up classes! We offer them on Wednesdays in our Roosevelt studio. Pricing is $30 per 90 minutes class.
Covid-19 Policies & Precautions
Little Hands Creations has been pivoting and adapting since schools closed in 2020, and we are committed to providing the safest possible environment for our students and staff.
All eligible students must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 to attend Little Hands Creations classes. Please be prepared to show proof of vaccination on the first day of class. If you have a medical exemption, please email email@example.com to make arrangements. All LHC staff members are fully vaccinated.
If a student exhibits symptoms of any illness, LHC staff will contact that student’s grown-ups to discuss whether early pick-up is necessary. If a student is exhibiting any symptoms that could indicate a Covid-19 infection, early pick-up will be required, and a negative antigen Covid test will be required for that student to return to camp. The families of other students will be notified if they have been in close contact with any student or LHC staff member who tests positive for Covid.
While not required, mask wearing is still highly recommended in all Little Hands Creations classes, due to the large number of children with whom our instructors have contact.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
