Frequently Asked Questions
What are pods?
Each child will join a small group of children that we call pods. Pods will stay together throughout daily activities and remain consistent throughout the semester. Pods consist of children in the same grade level and will operate on a rotating schedule, ensuring that enough space is left for social distancing (i.e when one pod has music class another will have sports class). The only time a child may leave their pod is if you opt in for a private tutoring session or a supervised Zoom class. There will be no more than 8-10 kids per pod with two instructors.
Where does this program take place?
FunFit Kids will be running this program in two locations. One program will take place at our main headquarters located at 550 West 110th Street NYC in our 3,000 sqaure foot kids gym and classrooms. Additionally, we will be opening a second location on the "lower" Upper West Side which will be announced shortly. Due to COVID19 restrictions, space will be limited in each of the locations. Please subscribe above to stay informed as we open the programs to ensure your child's spot!
How will you manage remote learning?
We understand that each child learns differently at his or her own pace. We leave a large block of time for remote learning daily - anywhere from1.5-2 hours. Children will be seated in our designated remote learning area with individual seats and desks. We will provide dividers that will give children access to privacy and safety. Each pod will have two instructors for assistance. We also understand that classes may be pre-recorded or live via video. We will accommodate both structures. Please notify us regarding live video classes so we can ensure the child/ren participate in a quiet supervised environment at the correct time.
What are your COVID19 guidelines and protocols?
FunFit Kids is taking every serious precaution regarding your child's safety in light of the COVID19 pandemic. To summarize, each day staff and children will be screened at check in for fever with a contactless thermometer and/or any COVID19 symptoms. All staff will be required to wear masks for the duration of the program. We will encourage children to wear masks to the extent most possible. We will limit the sharing of equipment and school materials. While remote learning, children will sit at individual desks that have personal dividers to ensure concentration and safety. Instructors will ensure proper social distancing measures are in place and assist with frequent hand washing and hygiene protocols throughout the day. Cleaning crews will come in each night to clean and steam all mats, equipment, bathrooms and shared spaces. To see our full in-depth policy, please click here.
How does the program work?
Families will be able to register for 1, 2 or 3 day options according to their child’s blended learning schedule. Half day options are available from 9:00 AM - 12:15 PM and full day options are from 9:00 AM - 4:00 PM. In addition, we also offer early drop off starting at 8:15 AM and an extended day (“after-school”) option that runs till 5:15 PM. Our instructors are there to engage children with an array of activities including sports, art projects, outdoor games and music classes. We also have a dedicated block of time each day to supervise and assist children while they learn remotely. The schedule for remote learning can be fixed or flexible according to child's needs (i.e prerecorded lessons or live Zoom classes) with an option to add on additional tutoring in specific subjects. Most importantly we will make sure your child is growing cognitively, physically and socially in a safe space and environment. This program is available to children entering grades K-3 starting in the Fall 2020.
When does registration open?
As it stands now, New York City DOE has announced a proposed blended learning option to start in Fall. However, New York State will confirm this plan the first week of August, between August 1-7. Pending their direction, we will open our registration and announce program dates. Subscribe to get updates with our official registration openings.
