     - We suggest you to bring a yoga mat or blanket for moments spent on the floor.

     - Drop-in's are welcome although attending the entire session is encouraged.

S.T.E.P.S. ~ FAQ & Policies

image233

Q: Can I attend as a drop-in class?

A: Yes, however, due to the development of the classes we recommend signing up for the entire series of classes.


Q: What if I have to miss a class?

A: No worries, you will be reimbursed; children get sick, caregivers get sick, & things come up - We understand!!!! 


Q: What if I want just my child to attend a class?

A: S.T.E.P.S. unique early childhood approach fosters the experience of moving, exploring, and creating together as a family. Therefore, we encourage you to take this time to learn new ways movement can become a part of your lives beyond the classroom. Hence, it is necessary for caregiver involvement.


Q: Are there other classes that I can take if my child is older?

A: If interested, PLEASE reach out. If S.T.E.P.S. notices a high demand for classes for children age 6+, S.T.E.P.S. will add another class. 

Testimonials

Heather ~

Steps to Move has been a wonderful class for my two-year-old. He loves going to "dance class" and getting his wiggles out. I love how he is learning mindfulness techniques and spacial awareness without even realizing it! The cherry on top is Caryn's flexible approach to class attendance - as a mom herself, she understands things come up and some weeks are missed, without penalty. Highly recommend! 

Alexa ~

I learned that my son can follow directions and remember things about moving his body week to week. I noticed my son paying more attention to how his body moves and is learning to calm down. We had so much fun moving together and my child always looks forward to coming! 

Tom ~

As a grandfather, I have seen how S.T.E.P.S. movement class is more than dance. Its really a learning experience; and since it includes social and language elements along with the valuable physical activity, its been the perfect pre-school program for my grandson.
