Ummm, no social promotion. Are we sure some fragile toddler’s self-esteem won't be permanently damaged.

Joeh, I'm sure you're being facetious here, but this is why the entertainment aspect is so crucial. If there's enough demand, there should be a waiting list.

If someone can't deal with the fact that they need to work hard or they can't enjoy the extra benefits of the program, you can just grab a new student off the waiting list.

In business, it's okay to say your product isn't for everyone. And its okay to refuse service to unreasonable customers.
