On the event schedule page there are three possibilities for enrollment "coming soon", "open", and "closed" If the registration link is still available on the event schedule page, there are still spots available either in the class or on the wait list.

Often phtographs are taken at events as the participants are working on their activity. These photos are used to help other people see how much fun our SEEDS events can be. We would appreciate your cooperation in giving us permission to phtograph our events at the time of enrollment.
It is important that one's behavior does not interrupt the fun and learning for others in the group. SEEDS staff will give two verbal warnings to redirect the individual(s). The third time a child acts out, they will be separated from the group and activity until they are ready to participate properly. On the fourth occurrence of misbehavior, SEEDS staff will contact the primary adult emergency contact for early pickup and dismissal of the child.
If your child has been dismissed early from any SEEDS event for behavior issues, he/she will not be allowed to enroll or participate in any future SEEDS events.
