What are the dates and times for classes?
Classes are usually held on Tuesday evenings for a period of 8 to 10 weeks each fall, and again in the spring. Classes begin at 5:30 p.m. and end at 7:30 p.m. Specific dates and locations will be announced as soon as possible.
Where are classes held?
Wildwood United Methodist Church
8911 FM 1488, Magnolia, TX 77354
How early may I drop my child off?
We ask that students do not arrive any earlier than 15 minutes prior to class time. While NYT staff may be on premises, they are busy setting up and cannot be responsible for supervising children until that time. We also ask that you pick your children up promptly when classes are over so that the class coordinator my complete their duties and head home to their family.
Will dinner be served during class time?
No, your child will need to eat dinner before or after classes. We do, however, have a snack bar available to hold them over. Snacks range from $.50 to $1.50
Do your teachers have background checks?
Absolutely! In fact, any adults that are volunteering or working around the students have completed background checks, as well as having had child protection training.
Will there be a Showcase?
Yes, although it is more a recital than a showcase. We want teachers to focus on skill-building, rather than the “show.” And we want you to have an opportunity to see what they have learned. Family and friends are welcome to attend. It will be held the evening of the final class in the same location as classes, unless otherwise stated.
Will my child need a costume for the recital?
Probably, but typically this is something that you have at home already. Or you may need to purchase something inexpensive, like a t-shirt. It will not be extensive or expensive. If this is a problem, please let the class coordinator know and other arrangements can easily be made.
What if I have other questions?
Please contact the class coordinator, Nancy Paffie, at npaffie
