Good evening Building Connections Family!
First of all, I hope that you are all doing well and enjoying summer!
We have had so much fun in June with 3, very successful camps! I love that we are seeing lots of new faces, known faces from recent and even faces from long ago who are returning! It brings me so much joy to meet you, your child and get an opportunity to walk with you. Even if it is briefly, we want YOU to know that we hear you, we love you, and you are valued and welcome here!
So many updates, but I will get to that later! What everyone wants to know is
“WHEN IS THE FALL SOCIAL GROUPS REGISTRATION DATE/TIME???”
Set your alarm for JULY 14 at 1:00 pm!
SPOTS WILL FILL UP FAST!
Since April, we have had a significant influx of people who couldn’t get into groups and/or camps, who have been on a waitlist and are looking to secure a spot!
We want to be able to meet everyone’s needs; however, we have limited spots available!
If this is a priority for you, be ready before 1:00!
Enrollment is time stamped, so we will start from the beginning and work our way until it is full!
We will have a LIVE sign up for the fall social groups on this day/time!
(NOT NOW!) We will only honor enrollments ON JULY 14 and after! If you enroll before July 14, it will be void! Waiting is hard but you’ve got this!!!
ON JULY 14:
1. Go to the website: www.buildingconnectionsnc.com and click on Enrollment!
This is ALL families-even if you did social groups last year, you will need to do another form, as information may have changed!
DO NOT DO REENROLLMENT FORM! We are basing groups on enrollment forms only right now-even if you are an OG BC family!
2. The most important is that you decide what days and times could work for you for the fall-pick your 1st, 2nd, and 3rd choice. We do our best to accommodate you, but our most important is placing your child in a BEST FIT group! Classes are capped at 6 kids for PK-5 and 10 for teens. On occasion, I have put more in a class, but under special circumstances, depending on the needs of the class!
I want to be clear: I will not compromise the integrity of these groups and the success of a child to put more kids in a class to get more in! I do realize many benefit and I want everyone to benefit, but not to the detriment of anothers success!
*After you enroll, we will be monitoring age groups, numbers, etc as you register LIVE and once we reach the max of each age group, we will then start a wait list. You will be notified if you will be on the waitlist.
*We will be working diligently to make groups and will send a follow up email to inform you of your child’s class day/time/teacher and logistics about coming to group! This email will go out early August.
*WE ARE SERIOUS ABOUT BEST FIT GROUPS! We will make phone calls to new families to understand more about your child! We tailor groups based upon need, age group, developmental levels, availability, etc! So much goes into making groups, so thank you for your patience in advance because we only want to provide a high quality service so that your child gains skills and practice that is individualized!
*********NOTE: Because we want to give a high quality service to you, we want you to make sure that when you register, that you are certain that you can commit to 6 weeks, 1.5 hr 1x a week. WE do know it is a commitment for ALL family members. So take this time to decide what is a priority for you! We assume that when you register, that you are committed to attend.
* We realize and are gracious to situations that are out of your control at times, but we have many that do want a spot. After you are notified via email of your class day and time, you will have 24 hours to accept/decline. If we do not hear from you in that time frame that you are not wishing to accept that spot, we will assume you are coming and you will be charged the full group amount. If you do not show the first day and have not communicated with us that you are not coming, you will be responsible for the full group amount and a $100 cancellation fee.
