What can I expect from the Fine Arts Club program?
An experience that is active, educational, and creative. This program will build self-esteem and social skills in a positive and encouraging environment.
How is your Fine Arts Club different from a preschool or daycare?
Our Fine Arts Club is a fun and active program that allows children to develop social skills and talents at a young age. Children participate in dance, yoga, and fitness classes while enjoying drama, art and music lessons. Each month the students will enjoy a unique theme filled with imagination and creativity.
Do I drop my child off or is this a parented class?
This program is non-parented, so you you drop off your child for the class. Parents will be invited to watch during designated parent viewing weeks at the end of each 12-week session.
What can I expect during drop-off? Am I able to stay?
Our teachers are trained in early child development and are experienced in dealing with separation anxiety. You will be encouraged to say your good-byes and allow the teachers to take your child to class. If this is your child’s first time in a non-parented setting, it can take time for them to feel secure and comfortable. It is common for children to cry anywhere from 5-20 minutes for the first 4-6 weeks. Our goal is to ensure your child feels safe, confident, and inspired and we have outlined our integration policy below. We will call you if your child cannot be settled and appreciate you trusting us with our process.
What does my child need for the class?
Please pack along diapers, a change of clothes, and soft-soled footwear such as Robeez or ballet/dance shoes. Students also need a nut-free snack in a lunch bag with their name on it. Please put your child’s name on all backpacks, lunch bags, reusable cups, and pull up diapers.
What if my child has separation anxiety?
It’s perfectly normal for children to have anxiety and separation issues when they first begin. Our teachers are prepared to help your child adjust to this new dynamic of leaving mom or dad at the door.
Our teachers are well trained in comforting your child and easing them into the class. If your child is still upset and feeling scared, our teachers will call you. Usually, within 3-4 drop-offs, your child will understand the routine and will be comfortable with attending class independently.
Does my child need to be potty trained?
If you are enrolling your child in level I, they do not need to be potty trained. However, we do ask that you please send extra diapers and/or pullups with your child’s name on them.
In order to be eligible for Little Movers or Kinder Movers, children must be fully potty trained.
How many children are in the class?
We accept 12 students in each class, and we have two certified teachers working with the children. Our standard ratio is one teacher for every 6 children.
What is the background of the teachers?
All of our teachers have experience working with children ages 2-5. They all have unique certifications, degrees and diplomas, and are passionate about working with this age group!
What if my child does not like the class, can I get a refund?
We are very confident in our program, but if for some reason it is not a fit for your child, we will place a credit on your account. Please note withdrawal must take place within 30 days of program start date. Due to the limit of space in each program, we do not offer refunds.
