Policies & Procedures

Important Details – 


After School Programs:

Mad Science is held onsite at your child's school.  Students will be grouped by like grades when possible.  Class sizes range from 12 to 25 children. 

All supplies and materials are included in the class fee.  Each week the kids will receive a take-home item and take-home card that will enable them to continue the fun and learning at home!!  

You will not receive a confirmation letter.  You will be contacted only if there is a problem with enrollment.

To avoid any mix-ups, please remind your child to go to Mad Science after school on class days.  It’s also a good idea to send the teacher a note instructing the child where to go.  Our instructors are not able to leave the classroom to look for absent children.

An announcement will be made on the first day of class, directing the children where to meet. 

Mad Science is not responsible for children before or after the stated class times.

Please pick your child up promptly after Mad Science at the school designated location at dismissal.  If you are going to be late, please make arrangements to have your child picked up by someone else or attend after school care if available.

Late pickup will be charged after a 5 minute grace period at the rate of $1.00 per minute and must be paid to the Mad Science office prior to the start of the next class for your child to continue.

If your child attends after school care, they will be walked there at the end of class.

For refund requests made at least 2 business days prior to the first class, a $25 processing fee will be deducted. No refunds or credits will be issued with less than 2 business days notice. No refunds of prorated fees for missed classes. There is a $30 fee for all returned checks.

If a class is cancelled due to inclement weather or an unexpected school closing, we will attempt to schedule a make-up class.  We are unable to offer a refund for classes missed due to unforeseen circumstances. 

An alternate topic for a particular class may be substituted without notice if necessary.


Special Events & Workshops:

There is a $100 nonrefundable deposit per event due at booking.  The deposit will be applied to the payment for the show. 

Please mail any checks to Mad Science of Detroit, 12413 Stark Rd. Livonia, MI 48150 or call 734-266-9444 to use a credit card if not already submitted.

Events rescheduled with less than one week notice will forfeit the deposit. Special events canceled with less than one week notice will be charged the full amount.

In order to adequately staff and supply our programs we ask that contacts please confirm the number of attendees one week before the event. Charges will be based on the number confirmed at that time or the actual attendance, whichever is greater.

Final program confirmation is dependent on receiving the deposit within 7 days. 

Final payment is due on the day of the show and may be paid in cash, check or credit card.  We can send an invoice prior to the show if needed.

Any contracts due must be signed prior to the program.

Our preschool programs are for 3-5 years old, 2 year olds are welcome to watch with designated supervision, but may be too young for full participation 

Workshops can host a max of 30 kiddos, for classes over 15 please provide an aide to assist. If a workshop exceeds the max number we cannot guarantee enough materials, this also will incur an additional cost to the workshop.
