We are now on the school year schedule. If you haven’t registered for a class yet, just check out our schedule (linked to the Classes page) and give us a call at 616-726-7979! Class sizes are smaller and limited for the time being to provide for the distancing needed.
Here’s what you need to know to come to class for the time being:
1. Please send a filled water bottle along with your student so they can avoid congregating at the drinking fountain.
2. If you would like your youngster to wear a mask for entering and exiting, they are welcome to do so. There is an exemption for those exercising, so masks are not needed for class.
3. Parents may stay to view as long as there is room for spacing. Please spread yourselves out as much as possible. We would like parents of preschool aged children to stay for class if at all possible.
For the Kidz has a free app! Get quick access to the latest news and schedules, as well as notifications about gym closings and special events. Be sure to allow notifications on your phone to get the weather related closings and other important news (we don’t send notifications very often). The android version is available in the Google Play Store, and the iPhone version is now available at the App Store! Search for For the Kidz Gymnastics.
For open gym times, see the Open Gym link on the Activities page.
Closings due to weather or other issues will be made on our Facebook page, our website, WZZM, or you can get a notification through our free app. We do not follow the school closings in the area and make our own judgement call. If we are open and you feel that it is unsafe to drive your child here for class, no worries, we will just record your child absent and you can complete a make up.
We don’t do formal evaluations in class, but are always watching the students to see if they can perform all the tasks needed for the next level. When a student is ready for the next level, the coach will inform the student and parent that the student can now transfer to the next level class. The switch can be made mid-billing period, there is no need to wait for the next billing cycle. If you would like to know how your student is doing in class, just talk to the coach either right before or right after the class.
If your child misses a class for any reason, he/she will automatically have a make up coming. To complete a make up class, just look at the schedule for the days and times that your child’s class meets on (for example, if your child is in Beginning Girls, look at the schedule for all the days and times that Beginning Girls meets on). Select one that will work for you, and then you can just show up for that class. Be sure to stop by the front desk when you arrive to let us know you are there. You do not have to complete your make up in the same week that you miss. Just be sure to get it in before your child drops from class. Or, if you wish, your child can come to open gym for free as a make up.
