Tell me more about your teachers -- Are they certified, do they have a background check?
Teachers of Qkids Phonics undergo an extensive background check prior to admission to our program. In addition, our teachers are certified teachers or retired teachers. Finally, our built-in, custom training assures our teachers are rehearsed, practiced, and experienced for any situation in our classrooms.

Can I select my own teacher?
At this time, although we strive to meet expectations, we currently do not offer this feature. Sorry in advance!
How many classes can I book a week?
Classes are bundled two to three times a week. This style of scheduling allows for maximum student-teacher interaction, and allows our teachers to develop an understanding for each child's specific needs and talents.
What's the cost per class?
Our classes average 15$ per class; however, our bundled packages can bring this price as low at 10$ a class, a savings of over 33%!
Can I change my child's curriculum level if it is too easy or too hard?
Of course! We work closely with our teachers to monitor students' progress and assign the best class possible; however, a parent is free to inquire about a class change at any time if they feel the curriculum is too simple, or too difficult, for their child.
Life is busy -- What happens if I miss a class or am absent (make-up and rescheduling policy)?
We fully understand that life is busy and scheduling changes happen. We're happy to work with you to identify the best schedule for you and your child.

We will reschedule a new class for you to make up the same lesson.
The quota of class rescheduling is subject to your subscription. You are allowed (1) rescheduling option per (8) credits. Rescheduling after that is allowed for a deduction of 1 lesson credit per rescheduled lesson. For those purchasing the 4 pack, it is accumulative -- for every two 4 packs purchased, you will receive 1 rescheduling option.
Class cancellations received less than 1 hour before class time will result in a deduction of 1 lesson credit. You may reschedule the class for an additional credit deduction.
An absence or cancellation made after the class has started will lead to 1 lesson credit deduction. You may reschedule the class for an additional credit deduction.
Being late to class will lead to 1 lesson credit reduction. If you would like to repeat the lesson in its entirety, you may schedule a make-up class for an additional credit deduction.

Do I need a credit card for the two free class offer?
Absolutely not! We think that working with children requires trust and results. We're so confident in our product that we offer two free classes, risk-free, as a way of giving parents a chance to join our community. All you will need is an email, a nickname for your child, and a schedule, and we'll get you sorted out!
Will my child be working with the same teacher and classmates?
We think students learn best when they are with a teacher who knows them and their needs. That is why we strive to have a reoccurring teacher, as well as classmates, in each class.
Unfortunately, this is not always possible; however, we guarantee that regardless of classroom or teacher your child will feel comfortable, happy, and excited to learn!
Are there any miscellaneous fees (i.e cancellation fees, etc.)?
No fees! At Qkids Phonics we try to be as transparent as possible. No fees, no hidden costs -- What you pay for in the package is the price you'll pay, period.
Is there a minimum student requirement for the class?
Although we try our best to accommodate every student's preferred schedule, we do require three (3) or more students to be enrolled in a class for one (1) to four (4) packages, and four (4) or more students to be enrolled for one (1) to six (6) packages.
Occasionally we may delay or reschedule classes per this requirement. If this happens we will reach out and try to our best to fit your preferences.
What is your refund policy?
If, for any reason, you are not satisfied with Qkids Phonics by the completion of your fifth class, we offer a full refund-- no questions asked.
Any classes gifted as part of a BOGO are non-refundable. Some classes purchased as part of sales are not eligible for refund, sorry in advance!
