My schedule fills up quickly -- if you are interested in a visit, it is best to
book as far in advance as you can to be guaranteed a date that works with
your schedule. Contact me to see what dates are still available.
Short Notice Bookings:
I get calls from people every year who want bookings on short notice, and
even though I can't fit everyone on my schedule, I try my best to
accommodate these bookings. Contact me to see what dates I have available.

children grades 2-8. For grades Pre-k, K and 1st a window of 50 minutes is best. Please remember to
also 10-15 minutes extra for seating and departure. If you need your programs shortened to
accommodate lunch time or class schedules please make this clear in advance so I have time to arrange
your programs properly.
Other Fees That May Apply:
Hotel Fee: ($95.00 in most areas) may apply to programs requiring an overnight stay.

Travel Fees when traveling by car: Due to the varying distances of school locations a
Travel fee based on mileage from my location to yours will apply to all program packages. Travel fees
may be reduced or waived if I am already near your location or if you book or help book multiple days
in your area. Travel fees will be calculated using a mileage rate from Clinton, NJ. Contact me for exact
pricing and/or the possibility of reducing or waiving travel fees.
