First, as a Licensed Kids Can Sew Instructor running the Kids Can Sew Program/Curriculum each student is required to have their own Student Pattern Packet. Kids Can Sew patterns and instructions are copyrighted materials. This means that patterns and/or instructions cannot be copied, traced, shared, rented, leased etc. which means each student must have their own pattern packet. If you are serious about being successful when teaching kids to sew, the Student Pattern Packets are designed to help you achieve that. The packets are designed to help you keep your students longer which means you keep getting paid every month a student is enrolled. The benefit for the student having their own packet, helps them learn how sewing applies to them, as a individual. They learn to internalize and personalize what they are learning, sewing, and why. Students learn to take responsibility for their sewing projects, supplies etc. which is just another aspect of learning to sew. It also provides a more efficient classroom experience for both the teacher and student. Parents perceive a better value and a better teaching environment when they know their child has their own packet to work from. Just as you charge EACH student a monthly fee to enroll in your classes, Kids Can Sew requires each student to have their own pattern packet also.
No. This is your own business and you can teach as much or as little as your time and circumstances permit. Some teachers teach full time, while others teach part time or just a class or two. The Kids Can Sew program is designed to be flexible enough for your own schedule.
