In the unlikely event that you should need to withdraw after the semester has begun, we offer a refund of 50% of the balance of remaining classes reimbursed at the end of the session.

Workshops: No refunds, no credit.

PARENT/CAREGIVER PARTICIPATION & RESPONSIBILITY
A parent or caregiver must attend for ages 6 months to 3 years, and is responsible for the well being of his or her child while in class. In order to make your experience at La Piazza di Carolina as immersive and authentic as possible, we ask that you try your best to refrain from speaking in English during lesson time. We encourage you to join in the class activities and songs with your child. A vocabulary list with essential words and phrases in Italian will be provided at the beginning of each session to help facilitate the process of language learning. With the list you can continue to practice and use the language at home with your child.
