Health guidelines and protocols

We believe everyone carries a responsibility for the health of our community, and place the highest value on ensuring safe communal spaces that inspire comfort and confidence. In an effort to encourage our children to be responsible community members, we ask that all adults who attend any of our classes, regardless of vaccination status, adhere strictly to our health and safety guidelines. Our experience has shown that our youngest community members "respond best when they take their lead from trusted adults. Your partnership in demonstrating appropriate mask wearing and social distancing will ensure that we will continue to be able to provide the highest quality of programming during a time when starting and building relationships is invaluable. We appreciate your partnership and cooperation.
