After School-Oakland



2019-2020 After School - Oakland

Please scroll down to register Class and Playtime!

Welcome to our after-school program registration page!

Our pedagogy is immersive because it's the proven most efficient way to  learn a language. It is play-based as play is "a ramp of joyful learning" which bolsters social and cognitive skills, improves problem-solving, creativity, abstract thinking and collaboration.

Our teachers and teacher assistants are either native speakers from France and other French-speaking countries or have a command of French comparable to a native speaker. They are credentialed in their country of origin and/or trained on a continuous basis by our school.

Our ratio is 1 teacher for 9 students and our maximum class-size is 15 students. When we are made aware by the parents of a student having a learning difference, we will provide a dedicated assistant at no additional cost.

In which class should I register my child?

Please refer here for the description of each class. If you are not sure which class is the most appropriate for your child, please use the result of this test as a guideline.

Note:

If you child is new to our program and has prior knowledge of French, our Academic Coordinators will contact you soon after registration to asses his/her level either in a phone interview or a meeting in person. This is in the interest of your child being placed in the correct level to set her/him for success. 

If your child is s returnee, s/he will take a placement test at the beginning of the school year to assess his progress/loses over the summer.

According to the test results, your child might be assigned to a different class.

Trial Class

Before officially enrolling your child, you can request a free trial class using the “drop in” option. The trial class is free of charge. However, it will show in your cart at the fee of $1. To waive the fee, please enter the coupon code: DROPIN2019 while checking out.

For safety and insurance purposes, it is mandatory to register your child  via our registration software, even for a trial class. We won’t accept into our class a child who is not previously registered.

The trial class will be available from the first day of the program. After the trial class, please inform the Department of Admissions about the decision you made. Without this follow up, the child will not be considered registered and won’t be able to participate to the following class.

Note: No payment will be processed for the trial class. HOWEVER, we cannot guarantee availability. If the class is full, your child will be placed on a wait list.

Cancellation policy

By registering for EFBA’s After-school program, you are committing for the entire school year, for 54 sessions (1 session=1.5hrs). The payment in full (or in a maximum of two installments) is for the whole program as a package for the whole school year. If needed, you may cancel the registration.

In case of cancellation, eligibility for refund is based on the time of the year when the cancellation request is submitted:

  • For cancellation requests submitted between January 1st, 2019 and May 1, 2019, full refund is available.

  • For cancellation requests submitted between May 2, 2019 through the end of the first week of the program, you will forfeit a deposit of $350, and will be eligible to receive a refund of your paid amount, minus $350. For members, no additional deposit fee will be forfeited if you cancel by the end of the first week of class. Keep in mind that cancelling a class or program does not cancel your membership status, the membership fee is a donation to our nonprofit. As a donation, the membership is non-refundable.

  • Cancellation requests submitted after the first week of the program are not eligible for any reimbursement. You will forfeit the entire program fee and will not be eligible for a refund.

 

Reallocating unused tuition to a different EFBA program is not permitted, but you may be able to request to transfer some of your unused tuition to EFBA’s scholarship fund as donation.
