Students may take classes at any school, however ACE does not provide transportation. All youth registrations must be made online. Please update your child’s grade, school, allergies, and dismissal information as needed. We want every student to have a positive learning experience so please make sure your child shows an interest in a class before enrolling.
Dropoff & Dismissal
KidZone staff will gather children after school and escort them to class. Students are dismissed by the instructor according to the dismissal plan you selected on the registration form (walk/pickup/afterschool). If you are picking up your child, please be prompt. After a 5-minute grace period, you will be charged $1 per minute payable on the spot to the person waiting with your child.
KidZone is an equal access program. We do not discriminate against children with disabilities. We encourage parents to disclose any medical or disability-related needs on your child’s registration form. There is no nurse on duty during KidZone and our staff are not permitted to administer medication. If you believe your child requires a specific reasonable accommodation for medical or disability-related needs, please contact our office to discuss your child’s needs. Please note that KidZone is not a school-sponsored special education program, so children are not entitled to the same IEP services and accommodations during programming.
Children should be able to participate in group activities with teacher supervision and treat fellow students, staff, and classroom space with respect. If a child is unable to do so, we will contact parents immediately to discuss the appropriate next steps.
Partial tuition assistance is available for most classes for students who receive free or reduced lunch. Please ask Food Services to email your free lunch form to CommunityEd@arlington.k12.ma.us. Please call our office before registering.
Withdrawals & Refunds
Full refunds are given when a class is canceled due to low enrollment. Students withdrawing from a class at least five full business days before the start date will receive an ACE credit toward another class, minus $15 fee. No other refunds will be granted.
