terms of service
Coder Kids, Inc. is our official name and we go by Coder Kids in the day-to-day. Coder Kids provides the following Terms of Service to you. We may update these occasionally as we grow, learn from our members, and figure out what works well.
What we offer you
Coder Kids provides computer science and engineering training to elementary and middle school kids at before and after-school programs. This training includes our curriculum, personalized instruction from our trained tutors who are experienced coders themselves, use of our Apple iMacs, MacBook Airs and ChromeBooks, and eligibility to earn Coder Kids achievement certificates, among other benefits.
A 50% refund will be available to you during the first and second week of instruction. No refunds will be available after the conclusion of the second week marked as 8:00 pm on Friday of the second week. This policy applies to all students including students who were not able to attend the first and/or second class.
Zero Bullying Tolerance
In an effort to provide an enriching experience for all our students, we follow strict guidelines on how to combat bullying. If an instructor or Coder Kids representative sees or suspects a student is bullying or is being bullied by another student, the instructor will stop the entire class immediately and have an open discussion about bullying. The conversation will cover 1) what bullying looks like, 2) what to do if you are being bullied and 3) how to stop bullying as a group. We encourage students to come up with answers on their own so that they may take ownership of the situation and realize that bullying not only affects the person being bullied but the entire class. Every time bullying occurs, the instructor or Coder Kids representative will repeat this process.
Example Discussion Points
Common examples of what bullying looks like:
1. Someone looks at you in a mean way or laughs at you.
2. Someone pushes or hits you.
3. Someone says something mean to you.
Examples of what to do if you are being bullied:
1. Ignore the bully and walk away.
2. Tell a teacher. If a teacher does not respond, tell another teacher.
3. Tell the bully to stop.
Lastly, discuss how to stop bullying as a group:
1. If your friend or peer is the bully, ask him or her to stop.
2. If you do not feel comfortable asking the bully to stop, change the subject.
3. If the bullying does not stop, the teacher will stop instruction and have a discussion with the entire class. This means less time coding for the entire group.
Coder Kids can dismiss student from the program without any prior warning for violating any of the Terms of Service. Refunds will not be given for students dismissed for failure of the student or parent to abide by the Terms of Service.
Parents who are more than 10 minutes late will be assessed a $25 fee. Students may be dismissed from the class with no refund for those instances where late pickup occurs more than once.
Please report any violations of the Coder Kids Terms of Service to firstname.lastname@example.org.
