Classroom Etiquette: Because our groups can often get quite large—we politely request that you keep cross-talking between parents to a minimum, so that everyone may hear the instructor.  We ask that you please leave strollers and infant car seats in your car, as there is limited space.

 

 

Please take time to become familiar with our Code of Conduct. 

All families participating in classes, support groups and playgroups will be asked to sign into all events and acknowledge that they are aware of these policies.
