 School Group Workshops 2009

 

Classes for school groups are available in the mornings and afternoons and run for 1 ½ - 2 hours (Toddler story hour is only a 45 minute session) at a pre-arranged time to fit your school schedule. This allows us to best accommodate you. You can enroll up to 20 children per session and we require a minimum of one of your teachers or other adult per 10 children to help keep children focused. KAF will provide a Teacher and Aid in each class to guide students through completion of their projects (Toddlers do not have a project).

 

Fee: $10 per Student
