ABSENCES:  POPPKiDZ continues to adhere to a firm no make-up policy to ensure consistency and minimize disruptions in your student’s class. However; if you have pre-planned vacations or absences, we are happy to offer a partial credit voucher for missed classes when discussed at the time of registration.  Exceptional circumstances are evaluated on an individual basis.

CHOOSING A CLASS: To ensure your student is placed in the most appropriate class, the knowledgeable POPPKiDZ hospitality team will guide you through a short series of questions to determine the best class for your student prior to your start date. Once your student has begun, the experienced POPPKiDZ instructional team is dedicated to teaching to their individual needs, even in a group class. However, if adjustments need to be made for safety reasons, they are done so quickly and discretely.

POPPKiDZ students enjoy ongoing, flexible enrollment with new class times added as needed.  For currently available class times, contact our hospitality team.  Registration for ALL 2019 is now available!
