If a child does not exactly fit the age range for a class, can he/she register?
If a student is within a year at either end of the age range, it is left up to the parents' discretion to decide if their child should enroll. Parents will be the best equipped to make that decision.

Where students should be dropped off and picked up?
Students should be dropped off and picked up by their parents/guardians at their classrooms. A Schedule with course locations will be mailed to families with a campus map. Course locations will also be placed on all bulletin boards around campus the first week of classes. A list of updated course locations will be available a week before classes begin at www.BristolCC.edu/kidscollege.
