Check your child's grade level before enrolling them in a class

We believe students and parents are the best judges of what they would like to explore. Our courses are designed to challenge students based on their level of understanding. 

Is there a discount for taking more than 1 class?

There is a $50 discount if a student enrolls for 2 classes and there is a $100 discount if a student enrolls for all 3 classes.

Can I get a refund after enrollment?

Refunds are allowed only before classes begin. Fees are non-refundable after the beginning of the session. Our classes have been very well received by parents and students in various school districts. If parents did not enroll a child then that spot could have gone to another child in the waiting list.

Are there makeup classes if my child misses a class?

There will be no makeup for missed classes.

Will the same course be offered in the next semester?

CompuChild has a diverse set of curricula in STEM and Entrepreneurship. We plan to offer our after-school enrichment classes throughout the year, including summer camps. Given the breadth of our curricula, we do not expect to repeat the same course for the same level student for approximately 2 years.

Do children need to bring anything to the class?

CompuChild instructors bring robotic kits, electrical circuit kits, computers, tablets, projectors, etc. to the class. Children do not bring anything – other than their excitement for learning :-).

What's the typical student/teacher ratio in these classes?

We try to maintain a student/teacher ratio of ~15/1 for hands-on classes such as robotics and electrical circuits. For other classes, we maintain a student/teacher ratio of ~24/1. The student/teacher ratio in our online classes is ~8/1.

Is there any homework?

Most of our classes have a final project where children demonstrate what they have learnt from the class through props, posters and presentations. We also recommend various observations and inquiries which are discussed in the next class. Other than these, there is no required homework that needs to be graded.

Is there any test or exam?

We do an assessment of every child on the first day of the class for our internal use and provide brief feedback at the end of the class. While CompuChild is very focused on making sure that children learn from these classes, we are also cognizant that a test/exam-focused environment hampers the excitement for learning. We do not make our evaluation available to parents. Parents should talk to their children to understand if they are benefiting from our classes.

Do children work together? How are they grouped?

Teamwork is one of the most important skills that students will learn in our class. We typically provide one robotic or electrical circuit kit to a group of 3 students. Students take turn to build these models and projects. We try to group children in a way that there is a minimum difference between the grade levels in one group. Our instructors keep an eye on the group dynamic and try to change the group if necessary.

How does a parent find out what happened in the class? Will my child bring any models home?

Most of the building and programming happens with expensive robotic and electrical circuit kits. We cannot afford to give these parts and models to children. They will use these parts to build another model in the next class. One way to communicate what happened in the class is by posting pictures and videos of activities in the class on CompuChild’s WhatsApp group and Facebook sites which parents can join. For that, parents need to allow us to take pictures of children and their activities in class which we can use for sharing with parents and our marketing purposes. You have this option in the enrollment form. Another great way to find out what happened in the class is to talk to your child. This allows them to recollect, which reinforces the ideas that we highlight in our class.

Can I pick my child up from the parking lot?

Our enrollment form asks if parents will be picking up their child from the class or their child is allowed to walk home on their own. If parents indicate that they will be picking up their child from the class then they will need to come to the door at the class.

What if I am late in picking up my child?

Parents/guardians are fully responsible for picking up children within five minutes of the dismissal time. The school district allows us the room for very specific hours. Your delay will require our instructors to wait with your child, sometimes even outside the classroom. After the first 5 minutes, we will be charging parents $5 for every 10 minute delay. CompuChild has the policy of passing on 100% of these fines to our instructors who wait with the child.
