Even the most talented teachers like to use guest artists once in a while to keep content fresh and to introduce students to new experiences. We would be delighted to collaborate with your teachers.
The competition for gym time is fierce. Can you teach programs in a classroom?
Of course we can. As long as we know the space limitations ahead of time, our instructors can prepare appropriate activities and make all the necessary adjustments.
We have a special event coming up. Will the students be able to perform what they learned?
Students need a minimum of four lessons with us in order to stage a performance. This also requires that classroom teachers practice with them in between our visits and we have access to the performance space for rehearsals. Our instructor will consult with your teachers to determine what they would like to see and then structure the classes so that the students can achieve it. Additionally, we can arrange for our instructor to be there for the performance.
Can you provide insurance and police checks?
UGOT Active Kids has Liability Insurance. All our Instructors have a valid police check that can be presented to the school or center upon a request.
We have some special needs students with physical limitations. Can they participate in the club?
Absolutely! We encourage special needs students to participate. We believe that all children, regardless of physical ability, gender, ethnicity or background, should have access to enrichment programs.
