After school is closed on public school holidays in order to run our holiday labs. These closures are factored into the semester’s overall fee and there are no make-ups for days that after school is not in session.
If you wish to make up an after school session due to illness or family schedule, please let us know. We will schedule the make up for a Lab immediately before or after the absence (capacity permitting). We prefer not to allow make ups past the week the absence occurs. We do not issue credits for missed sessions.
MEMBERSHIP & PAYMENT
After school families are considered Game Lab members, and receive great perks, such as discounts and exclusive access to evening and weekend programming as well as advanced sign-up for our summer and holiday labs.
We break the full-school year fee into ten equal payments that are charged monthly soon after the first of every month enrolled in after school.
Our after school program is conducted over the full school year (ten months). Families who register for after school are committing to participate for the full year. We count on our after school families to remain in the program for the full term in order to plan and staff it effectively. However, if a family must terminate their after school membership at any time during the year, we will cancel your membership and impose an early termination fee. Early termination will result in a fee of $20 for every month enrolled in after school.

To secure a seat, payment must be received in full at time of booking. There is a 48-hour grace period in which to cancel a seat with no penalty, except when the seat is booked for an activity that occurs within those 48 hours, in which case, there is no refund. There are no refunds for seats after this period, including for illness. If a family schedule changes, seats may be switched to different sessions if space allows.
Each day I will provide my child with a lunch and snacks. All food must be tree-nut free and not require refrigeration. If my child forgets their lunch and/or snacks or their lunch and/or snacks do not meet the requirements set above and Game Lab has to provide my child with lunch/snacks I agree to fully reimburse Game Lab for the cost of the food.

I hereby acknowledge that I’ve alerted Brooklyn Game Lab’s ownership of any medical issue, dietary issue, allergy or illness that could impact the safety and well being of my child and her peers in the lab. If my child might require an EpiPen, other medical device or medication, I have left it (labeled with my child’s name) with the staff with explicit, written instructions.
Emergency Medical Treatment
I do hereby give permission to Brooklyn Game Lab to obtain the necessary emergency medical treatment for my child, with the understanding that the family is notified as soon as possible. If my child receives an injury during the session, I am responsible for any medical expenses incurred.
Rain Gear/Outdoor Gear Policy
Each day Game Lab may take the children outside for various activities. For days where it may rain, I agree to provide the appropriate raingear for my child. I understand that if I would like my child to wear sunscreen while outside, I will provide that in their bag each day. Game Lab will not apply sunscreen to children, but will remind them to apply it.
Lost and Found
Game Lab recommends that you label all personal items with your child’s name. Game Lab is not responsible for any lost, stolen or misplaced items.
I understand that my child will be participating in large, collaborative game design efforts and acknowledge that any contribution, play-testing feedback or design suggestions offered up as part of the program are property of Brooklyn Game Lab and eligible for use in Game Lab programming, marketing materials and product line.
I permit the program to use photographs of my child and/or her projects and work in program materials. I understand that personal information about my child will never be shared in conjunction with these photographs without my permission.
I understand that Game Lab reserves the right to ask my child to leave the session if it is determined that he/she is in any way disruptive to the Program. Any decision made by Game Lab in this regard will be in Game Lab’s sole discretion. Game Lab asks that the parent/guardian disclose all pertinent information regarding their child’s past school experiences and/or behavior so we may help you decide if our session is appropriate for your child. If the parent withholds information pertaining to special needs, behavioral, physical or other and it is determined that Game Lab is not appropriate for your child, refunds will not be given. Children exhibiting behavior that may be harmful to themselves or others may be gently held by supervising staff to prevent them from causing harm. If we find out that your child does not meet the age requirements for the session, your child may be asked to leave, and no refund will be made. Similarly, if your child is asked to leave the session for any reason, no refund will be made.
