The Big Picture

Health & Safety - September 2021


Thank you for being part of our The Little Gym family! The health, wellness, and comfort level of your family is a top priority for us throughout this pandemic, and we have closely and consistently followed the State and local government as well as the CDC's recommendations.  

Following the instructions from the CDC (Center for Disease Control) and EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), we continue to have the highest level of cleaning standards in the way our facility is disinfected to make it so fresh and so clean, clean! We know that many families already recognize The Little Gym as the cleanest place you can bring your child, and now more than ever, we will stay true to that sentiment. 

  • We will be cleaning and disinfecting the gym and gym equipment before, during, and after each class.
  • We will be cleaning and disinfecting the Multipurpose room after each use.
  • Bathrooms will be wiped down with disinfectant multiple times each day.
  • The high traffic surfaces in the lobby area will be wiped down with disinfectant between classes and will be fully cleaned and disinfected mid and end of each day.

Hand Washing Regulations

We are now implementing hand washing/sanitizing before and after each class. Parents and children will be asked to wash or sanitize hands when entering the facility and directly proceeding class. We will also have hand sanitizer available in the gym to use between stations. 

Masks/Facial Coverings

To ensure the health, safety, and comfort level of our team, you will see our instructors wearing masks while teaching classes and during all lobby interaction.  All adults are encouraged to wear masks regardless of vaccination status while in class or in the lobby. Children wearing masks in class will remain a personal preference for families and are not required as they will be doing physical activity and exerting themselves in the gym.

Make Ups/Sick Policy

As with any illness, we ask that you do not come to class if your child is coughing, sneezing, or has had a fever within the last 24 hours.  Our generous make-up policy allows you to attend a make-up class by simply calling or texting us at least 2 hours prior to the absence to release your spot. Make-up classes can be used at your convenience whild you are enrolled and tuition is current as long as we have availability and can maintain proper ratios.

Schedule Modification

We have updated our class schedule and implemented 5-10 minutes between each class to allow for less overlap of members in the lobby. 

MERV-13 Air Filtration

We have updated all air filters to MERV-13 as recommended to help prevent airborne transmission of COVID-19

We assure you that we are taking all necessary measures highlighted by the CDC and EPA to ensure that The Little Gym is, and will continue to be, the cleanest place for all families and staff members.

While we know there are a lot of changes, both long term and temporary, however, a few things aren’t changing: our FUN, dedicated instructors, our age-appropriate class curriculum, the level of Serious FUN in each of our in-gym classes, camps, birthday parties and how much we love our members and care about your child's physical, emotional and social development!
