1. Is the class fee charged per day or per 2-week session?
Kids at College classes cost $50 – $85 each and that fee covers the entire 2-week session (8 days, a total of 10 hours of instruction).
2. MY CHILD HAS AN ACCOUNT, BUT I CAN’T REMEMBER THE LOGIN?
Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you have forgotten your child’s account login. Please include the child’s full name and birthday when sending this request.
3. When can I register?
4. MAY I COME ON CAMPUS TO SHOW MY CHILD WHERE HIS/HER CLASSES WILL BE?
The Kids at College Packet Pick-Up event provides an opportunity for parents to pick up the child’s T-shirt and the car-line sign. It is also a great time for parents and children to locate classrooms and become familiar with the Polk State College campus.
5. WHO ARE THE KIDS AT COLLEGE INSTRUCTORS AND STAFF?
Most Polk State Kids at College instructors are teachers from local public and private schools. In addition, the program uses parent volunteers to supervise students between classes, at snack time, and during arrival and dismissal. All instructors and parent volunteers (in addition to all employees of Polk State College) undergo a background check.
6. HOW DO I PLAN A SCHEDULE?
Individual classes are 1 hour and 15 minutes in length and are scheduled between 8:15 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (Lakeland Campus), or 1:15 p.m. and 5:30 p.m. (Winter Haven Campus). The schedule lists classes by campus, session, time and age group. Children may take up to six classes during each session (three classes per campus). The College does not provide transportation between campuses. If a child wishes to take classes with a group of friends, the parents must coordinate to ensure that all students are registered for the same classes at the same times. Many classes are offered at multiple times.
7. WHEN IS THE PACKET PICK-UP?
Parents should print the child’s schedule in advance and attend the Packet Pick-Up event on the appropriate campus: LAKELAND CAMPUS – Tuesday, June 13, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Lakeland Gallery (LTB 1108). WINTER HAVEN CAMPUS – Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Lobby (WFA Building). These are drop-in-and-pick-up sessions; parents are not expected to stay for the duration of the event.
8. WHAT IF I CANNOT ATTEND THE PACKET PICK-UP, OR I MISSED IT?
Packets that are not distributed during the event are sent home at the end of the first day of Kids at College.
