Ashburn Academy of Dance (the "Academy") offers programs of dance education for students under the age of 6, and for school-aged students. The Academy does not operate a child care program, and is not a licensed child-care facility.
POLICY REGARDING PRESCHOOL AND KINDERGARTEN PROGRAM
(Children under the age of 6)
Students under the age of six may not be left unattended during classes. A parents or caregiver must remain on the premises during classes for students in this age-group. If it is necessary for a student's parent or caregiver to leave the premises during class, the child's parent must make alternative arrangements for the child's supervision by an adult on-site, and must sign out and identify the supervising adult before leaving the premises. Academy personnel will not be responsible for supervising any child outside a classroom, and will not assist any child with bathroom breaks. It is the parent's responsibility to ensure that the student is comfortable with allowing the on-site designated adult to assist with bathroom or other issues if necessary.
POLICY STATEMENT REGARDING SCHOOL-AGED PROGRAM
(Children 6 years of age and over)
Students ages six and over are in our school-aged program and are free to enter and leave the premises without permission or supervision. Parents and caregivers are responsible for determining whether students are mature enough to attend classes without the presence of a supervising adult, and to designate such an adult if supervision is necessary and the parent cannot be present. It is the parent's responsibility to impose attendance and behavioral rules on the student, to ensure that the student knows how to contact a parent or caregiver, and to inform the student of all supervision or transportation arrangements made on behalf of the student. The Academy is not responsible for monitoring the arrivals and departures of students. All students are expected to abide by waiting room rules. The Academy reserves the right to require parental supervision between classes where the Academy determines, in its sole discretion, that a student's unsupervised behavior is inappropriate or disruptive.
STATEMENT TO BE SIGNED BY PARENT OR GUARDIAN:
I have read the above supervision policy statements, and agree to abide by the policy applicable to my child, based upon my child's age. I understand that the Academy provides dance instruction inside the classroom, but assumes no other responsibility for the care and supervision of my child.
