- Tuesday morning class (starting June 30th).
- Wednesday evening class (starting July 1st).

As always, parenting partners attend for one tuition, not two. And, if the classes you see don't fit your scheduling needs, let me know what your scheduling needs are, and we'll see what we can work out. Just send me an email using this link.
