Rising Star’s Virtual Learning Support program is designed to oversee and enhance your child’s virtual instruction while allowing children and families to create a “bubble” of friends within the community. We don’t want your child to dread virtual learning, instead embrace it, and look forward to talking, playing, and moving with friends! As parents ourselves, we know this is an incredibly difficult time for both parents and children and see the social, emotional, and physical toll the pandemic is taking. We hope to not only alleviate your stress, but bring joy to your child’s day. We are here to foster social interaction with peers, help facilitate time for virtual learning, and provide organized activities for your child.
Distance Learning Support
Our highly qualified instructors are there not only to support your child’s learning but to enhance it. They will work with each individual child as needed and will help them to understand and expand on concepts taught by their teachers.
With schools being closed many children are missing out on opportunities to socialize with their peers. Our program will allow them to connect and PLAY with other kids in a safe, clean and positive environment.
Rising Star Gymnastics knows that to succeed in school, especially with distance learning, children physical activity to focus. Our program will provide daily fitness, gymnastics, and other physical activity to keep them moving and engaged!
Clean & Safe Environment
Safety is our number one priority at Rising Star. Our 10,000 sq ft facility allows students and staff members to keep physical distance throughout the day both during schooling and other activities. Our staff members clean & sanitize regularly throughout the day paying particular concern to high touch areas. All staff members and students wear face coverings when indoors and when outdoors if a minimum of 6 feet cannot be met.
