Frequently Asked Questions
The Family Workshop is designed for parents and their children ages 5-17 to participate together. To support other adults in the life of your children, we offer programs that others are invited to attend. For more information about program availability, please visit our website at www.kidsturnsd.org.
It is strongly recommended that both parents attend the same workshop. Although co-parents are not in the same classroom, they learn the same co-parenting skills simultaneously throughout the Family Workshop. When a parent registers for the program, he/she is asked to provide contact information for his/her co-parent and we invite your co-parent to attend the same Family Workshop. When there is a restraining order (RO) or temporary restraining order (TRO) in effect between co-parents, we do not invite the co-parent. As a reminder, the program works best when the entire family is present and you are encouraged to attend together. When reasonable to do so, it is highly suggested that co-parents communicate with each other and decide which Family Workshop series will work best for the entire family to attend.
All adult participants must attend all four sessions of the same workshop in their entirety to receive a certificate of completion at the end of the program. Please note: the Family Workshop attendance policy states that if a client misses more than 15 minutes of a session, it is considered an absence. If you are unable to attend all four sessions of the same workshop, you will not receive a certificate of completion. Kids’ Turn San Diego does not offer “make up” sessions at our Workshops.
Should an emergency arise that prevents you from attending a session, please call our office (858-521-0027). We are happy to re-schedule you for our next available Family Workshop and will apply the tuition you already paid to the future Family Workshop.
All children who attend at least one session of a Workshop will receive a certificate of participation.
Yes – If parents are unable to pay the $400/parent tuition due to financial hardship, they may request a Family Workshop Tuition Reduction Scholarship form by downloading the application form from our website, located under the “What We Do” section, “Family Workshop for Separated and Divorced Families” program. We have a limited number of Scholarships available and a deposit must be received to reserve your space in the program. Completed forms and documentation must be received at least one week prior to the start of the Family Workshop. If your application is received after this time, it will be considered, however, there may only be a limited amount of scholarship funding available. Once the completed form and documents are reviewed, we will notify you of your tuition amount within one week. Payment plans are available for those who request them.
Tuition is to be paid in full by the third session of the Family Workshop you are attending. However, parents are required to pay a deposit on or before week one to participate in the program. Program tuition is $400/parent. A deposit must be received to attend the program. Payment plans are available for those who request them.
