Setting Up Classes
  1. Decide what class your children would like to take.
  2. Look for a teacher/class. If they have their own site move to step 4.
  3. Libraries, banks, churches, and community centers often have rooms for the public, sometimes at no cost. If there are costs (for instance, you might have to cover rent or insurance), include these charges in the price of the class. Ask about parking and bathroom facilities, and any other amenities, such as playgrounds and cooking facilities. Sites with (or near) playgrounds are ideal for younger siblings who might be waiting for the class to end.
  4. Set the date and time: this will typically be based on the instructors schedule. Plan for enough time to advertise the class and collect and pay any fees.
  5. Get the word out. If possible, create a flyer with all the information and don't forget to include your contact information. Ask respondents to provide the names and ages of those taking the class with their contact information. Make sure you have phone numbers for last minute emergencies.
  6. It is best to require payment to be made immediately - don't hold a slot in the class until payment is received. This may sound harsh but it is very important! Close the class when payment has been received for the minimum number of students allowed.
  7. Send confirmation letters or emails to finalize registration.
  8. Send a reminder a few days before the class.
