Container Gardening

for the Urban Dweller Want to grow veggies, herbs, flowers, even shrubs, but don’t have the garden space? Don’t despair! If you have a patio, porch, or windowsill you can experience the pleasures of gardening from spring through fall. In this class, we’ll learn about where and how to grow the flowers you’ve always wanted and get ideas for new and exciting plants. We’ll cover containers, soil, feeding and disease control, varieties of plants, growing conditions, and more. Every student will leave with their very own potted, starter plant and the skills to create a little garden oasis in the city.

CHILD ENRICHMENT & YOU

The Polite society Academy

Around the World in 7 Days

Children today are expected to exhibit a heightened level of polish and sophistication in public. Give your child the gift that lasts a lifetime: character, poise, and confidence. Through age appropriate exercises in a fun and supportive environment, young ladies and gentlemen will develop the skills needed to present themselves well in any situation, from play groups to soirees to school interviews.

We’ve created recipes your child will enjoy making... and you’ll both enjoy eating! In this hands-on class, kids will discover the tastes and cultures of foreign lands as they mix and measure ingredients to create dishes from around the world. Explore the globe as we travel to distant cities and make delights such as Mexican tacos, Japanese sushi, and more in our state-of-the-art kitchens. Children will be the chefs, customers, and waiters. We’ll cover different recipes and countries each term, so returning students will have just as much fun every time!

LET’S GET PHYSICAL After a musical warm up and some stretching, children will have the chance to barrel around in the Bay Village’s exclusive for-kids-only gym, complete with mats, tunnels, obstacle activities, and games. Your little ones will learn the ins, outs, unders, and arounds, mastering their motor skills through coordination and balance exercises.

Special 1-Day Family Events Make Your Own Video Games! (8–12 YRs)

Let’s Go Fly a Kite! (5 Years & Up)

Work hand-in-hand with your children as they create their own interactive games, stories, music, art, and animations—and then share their creations on the Web! We’ll be creating our projects using Scratch, an easy-to-use programming language developed by the Lifelong Kindergarten Group at the MIT Media Lab. As your children create their projects, they’ll learn important mathematical and computational concepts, while also learning to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively. They’ll leave with a working animation, and the skill to create their own projects at home! Jul 23 ONLY

Why do kites have different shapes? Do kites always need tails? Where were kites invented? Discover the answers to these questions and more in a family event dedicated to wind-powered fun! Children will have the time of their lives decorating and assembling their very own ultralight kites, then heading outside to fly them as a group. Great fun for ages 5 and up. Bring the whole family! No extra fee for materials: it’s included in the tuition! (Registration is per person, not per adult/child pair. Each child must be accompanied by a registered adult.)

ImPortant Information & Policies The BCAE reserves the right to cancel classes, change times or locations, and change instructors when necessary. Prices are subject to change. In the event of a discrepancy between the printed and online versions of our catalog, information shown online will be considered correct. Course Cancellations

Student Services

We occasionally have to cancel classes due to low enrollment. In the event we cancel your class, you may either request a credit or a refund in full for that class or transfer into another class, space permitting. If you transfer into a class that’s more expensive than the cancelled one, you’ll be responsible for any difference in tuition or fees. If your new class is less expensive, you may request a credit or a refund of the difference.

All transfer, credit, and withdrawal requests must be made in person or by phone (617-267-4430) through our Student Services office during its normal business hours: Monday–Thursday, 9:00am–7:00pm; Friday, 9:00am–5:00pm. Requests made outside these hours, including weekends and holidays, will not be accepted or processed.

Transfers We permit transfers from one class to another, but only if there is still space available in the new class, if both classes occur during the same term, and if you request the transfer at least five (5) business days before the first session of the class for which you’ve already registered. Transfer requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). You will be responsible for any difference in tuition or materials fees if the new class is more expensive than the one from which you’re transferring; if your new class is less expensive, we’ll apply the difference as a credit towards your future registrations. Transfers are non-refundable, and no transfers are allowed for off-site classes.

Withdrawals If you withdraw from a class at least five (5) business days before the first session, you may be eligible for a full credit or refund for the tuition and materials fee you have paid for the class. Withdrawal requests must be submitted in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see below). Withdrawal requests that are received less than five (5) business days prior to the first session may qualify for a partial credit or refund, subject to additional requirements. For details, please refer to the full withdrawal and refund policy that appears on our website: www. bcae.org. Off-site classes are non-refundable, as are classes for which our catalog says, “no discounts, transfers, or credits apply.” Please note that our $6 per person per term registration fee is not refundable. 30

BCAE | Jul-Aug 2011

Credits & Refunds All credit and refund requests must be made in person or by phone to our Student Services office during normal business hours (see above). Credits are valid for only one year from the date of issue. Refunds will be issued by check unless you request a refund to your credit card within two (2) days of your class’s cancellation. Please allow 2-4 weeks for check refunds to be processed. BCAE memberships are non-refundable.
