WHAT ARE YOU DOING TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE AND WHAT IS YOUR MASK POLICY?
Please be assured that safety has always been, and will always be our top priority. As we have done for many years, we will continue to have our facility professionally cleaned every night, as well as disinfecting and sanitizing equipment in between classes.
Since our "customers" are between the ages of 1-12 years old and have not had the opportunity to receive the vaccine, our instructors will continue to wear masks while teaching, for the time being. Masks are no longer required for adults who have been fully vaccinated, but of course you are welcome to join us in modeling this behavior for our children. Mask use for children is up to the parents discretion.
ARE THE DAILY ACTIVITIES DROP-IN OR WHAT?
They used to be, but with the high demand this summer, our Toddler Playdates and Open Gyms are all reaching capacity, so we now requiring you to pre-register. This is the only way to guarantee your child will be able to participate. Just click on the Summer Registration tab above, then scroll down to the Daily Activities. If there is a register tab next to it, proceed. If there is a waitlist tab, you can add your child to the waitlist, but you are not enrolled. We will call you if we can get you off the waitlist.
WHAT'S UP WITH CHANGING THE REGISTRATION FEE TO A MEMBERSHIP FEE?
During these unprecedented times, we are now offering much more than weekly classes. Lots of Open Gyms, Recess-type drop-in opportunities. We also have something offered on the hour almost every hour on some weekdays, so you will have more opportunities to use the gym with a lot fewer children in it. We felt like this not only added value (worthy of a $5 yearly increase), but also made it feel more like a membership. The old registration fee used to be $35 and the new membership fee is $40. Don't worry though. It is still an annual, family fee and regardless of the name of the fee, if you paid it within the last calendar year, it will not be debited until the month of your renewal.
I UNDERSTAND THE SCHOOL YEAR SCHEDULE WILL STAY THE SAME, BUT WHAT ABOUT SUMMER?
Starting in June 2021, the class schedule will change and other activities will be offered as well, so a re-registration process will be necessary. The fee schedule will be the same (the credit card on file will be charged on the 1st for the following months tuition), except the August 1st charge will only be 50% because we only have classes for the first two weeks of August. Summer registration will most likely start in early April.
WHAT SHOULD MY CHILD WEAR?
Comfortable clothes! Shorts, sweats, leotards, leggings, tights (without feet) and a t-shirt...whatever your child prefers. Pants/shorts with buttons, zippers, etc should be avoided. Hair needs to be pulled back and no jewelry, please. For safety reasons children need to be bare feet. Adults participating in Tumble Tot 1-2 & 2-3 classes will need to take their shoes off but can keep their socks on.
HOW DO I REGISTER?
Online is probably the easiest, but you are welcome to call us or print a form and mail it in…however you like! Click the REGISTER tab or the PARENT PORTAL button. If you have ever been enrolled with us before and given us your email, you are already in our system and do not need to start from scratch. You do NOT need to fill out the yellow form. Instead click “Already A Customer?” on the top of the yellow form. If you are new to us, welcome! You will simply follow the instructions on our website. As always, call us if we can help.
WHAT'S THE FEE STRUCTURE?
We've made lots of improvements in this area to make things more simple and convenient for you!
The annual, family membership fee of $40, if due, is charged at the time of enrollment. For weekly classes, on the 1st of each month (or the next business day) your credit card on file will be charged that months tuition. We hold your spot for as long as you like! If you decide to un-enroll, please just let us know by the end of the month to avoid a charge for the following months tuition.
For our daily drop-in type activities, you will be charged during or after the activity, but not prior to.
* For the month of March...your child will have five classes, instead of the usual four, so tuition reflects this additional class.
*The month of August will be 50% since we will only offer classes the first two weeks of the month.
IN WHICH CLASS SHOULD I ENROLL MY CHILD?
During this reopening/crazy covid time, we have been forced to change our model. While limiting the number of participants in the building at a time, but still trying to make it convenient for families with multiple children, we needed to simplify our class levels. Although we are now offering more age specific class levels, and as we get back on our feet, we may need to combine levels of close age groups and abilities. With so fewer children in the gym at a time, our instructors are able to personalize each class to make it age appropriate &/or skill appropriate and challenging for each child.
Our TUMBLE TOT CLASSES are now divided into the following age groups...
1-2 (which is for one year olds and young two's), 2-3 (two's and young three's), 3-4 (threes and young fours) and 4-5 (pre-K).
All Tumble Tot classes meet once a week for 40 minutes.
Our SCHOOL AGE CLASSES now have the following levels...
KINDER KIDS 5-6 (boys and girls currently in kindergarten), SCHOOL AGE 6-9 (boys & girls in first grade & up) and BIG CLASS 8-12 (formerly known as Big/Int 8-12, Advanced/Elite and Boys Fitness 8-12)
All School Age classes meet once a week for 55 minutes, except the Big Class, it's 85 minutes.
Our curriculum and lesson plans in each level progress throughout the year, so in most cases a student will stay in the same class for that school year and advance to the next level in the summer or the following fall.
Please don’t hesitate to call us as we can help figure out the right class for your child.
WHAT IF I WANT TO PAY BY CASH OR CHECK?
We do require a credit card on file, however you are more than welcome to submit a different form of payment. We just ask that our office receives it no later than the last day of the month for the following months tuition.
WHAT IF MY CHILD MISSES A CLASS?
We offer make-up classes for students who are currently enrolled. Make-up classes need to be completed within three months of a missed class and while still enrolled in our class program. Just contact our office and we will find another class for your child to attend.
CAN WE START MID-MONTH?
Absolutely! And of course we will prorate the tuition for that month.
WHAT IS YOUR SNOW POLICY?
WHEN THE UPPER ARLINGTON SCHOOLS ARE CLOSED, WE WILL CANCEL OUR MORNING CLASSES ONLY. WE WILL MAKE A SEPARATE DECISION FOR THE AFTERNOON/EVENING CLASSES AND COMMUNICATE THAT VIA EMAIL, VOICEMAIL AND THIS WEBSITE.
IF UA SCHOOLS ARE ON A DELAY, WE WILL BE OPEN THE ENTIRE DAY.
