Frequently Asked Questions
Why are classes being taught in a home setting?
Classes are being taught in a home setting in Fairfield until a permanent and affordable commercial location can be acquired. Some classes are held at Mother's Day Out campuses.
How do I register?
1. Click on the CLASSES tab on our website.
2. Under the class you're interested in, click the register tab. You will be taken to our registration page. If you do not already have an account with ACTIVE, you will need to create an account in order to register.
3. Once your registration and payment has been received, you will receive a confirmation email with more information about the class.
What if the class I want is full?
If the class you want is full, you can request to be put on the wait-list.
Are make-up classes available?
Yes. If your child is unable to attend a class, make-ups must be scheduled during the same teaching week of the class that is missed. Please call or email to let me know of any absences and to schedule a make-up. This changes during the summer schedule. Summer absences are not guaranteed a full hour make-up class. You will, however, always be given the materials for the missed lesson.
What if my plans change and my child cannot take the class we registered for?
The registration fee (paid to the registration company) is non-refundable after registration is received. If you change your mind after attending the first class, you will receive a refund for 90% of your paid tuition. There will also be a small $5 to $10 fee for supplies given to your child on the 1st class. No refunds after attending the 2nd class.
My child is not old enough to start kindergarten in the Fall of 2020, but has a strong interest in reading. Can I still enroll him in the class?
No. The reading classes are designed to be taken the year before kindergarten.
Why aren't more classes being offered?
Until a location can be acquired, classes will be taught in my home, by one teacher. There are more day and time options during the Fall registration. Typically, once students take one class, they stay on for the entire school year and go through the entire curriculum. Therefore, by the end of the year, there are very few time slots left for new classes. The best time to register is in the Fall.
Is this the same Head Start to Reading that was offered at the Jones Rd location?
Yes. The author of that curriculum, Diane Miller, has licensed her curriculum. Now BOOST is able to offer the same classes, closer to home!
How many students are in a class?
The ABC classes are capped at 4 students. ABC is only offered in Fall and Spring.
The other classes have a limit of 5 students.
The class sizes increase during the summer session.
When should my preK child (age 4 or 5, year before kindergarten) start the classes?
