WHY WON’T THE REGISTRATION SYSTEM LET ME SELECT THE CLASS I WANT?
If you have any questions or problems while registering, please contact Emily Currid at EmilyCurrid@nationalyouththeater.org.

 

DO YOU ISSUE REFUNDS?
No, sorry, we do not issue refunds. All registration payments are final. The exception to this would be if there were not enough students to hold a class; then all registrants would receive back their tuition.

 

HOW EARLY MAY I DROP MY CHILD OFF?
We ask that students do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to class time. While NYT staff may be on premises, they are busy setting up and cannot be responsible for supervising children until that time. We also ask that you pick your children up promptly when classes are over so that the class coordinator my complete their duties and head home to their family.

 

MAY I STAY IN CLASS WITH MY CHILD?
No, parents are asked to drop off their children, then return to pick them up when class is over. There are several reasons for this policy. For one, we require a background check on all adults that are in proximity to our students. Secondly, having parents in class may have an unintended disruptive effect.  And, if a child deals with separation anxiety, it is usually resolved more easily when the parent drops the child off at the beginning of class. Our teachers are really good with helping kids get into the fun and feel better quickly.  Unfortunately, there is not space allocated for parents to wait at our venue. There are, however, several places close by where parents may wait if they don’t live close enough to go home: HEB BBQ, Starbucks, and many fast food and regular restaurants.

 

WILL DINNER BE SERVED DURING CLASS TIME?
No, your child will need to eat dinner before or after classes.

 

DO YOUR TEACHERS HAVE BACKGROUND CHECKS?
Absolutely! In fact, any adults that are volunteering or working around the students have completed background checks, as well as having had child protection training.

 

WHAT IF I HAVE OTHER QUESTIONS?
Please contact the class coordinator at ChristiLachney@nationalyouththeater.org.

*Following our program guidelines in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, classes will only be open for viewing by NYT instructors.
