A Solution for Virtual Schooling
and the Working Parent
Are you a working parent who cannot get any work done while your children are at home 'schooling'? What is a working parent to do when the schools are not open for you to work in peace? The solution is to give your children the space they need to work in a quiet, socially distanced atmosphere with supervision and, when needed, provide the help that teachers cannot supply virtually. In addition, since virtual classes are only half day, we will be offering additional enrichment afternoon programs. Read below for more information. Priority enrollment will be given to students enrolled in the 2020-2021 Dance Season until 7/31/2020.
*Children must be enrolled in Kindergarten to participate in the program.
Learning Lab Only:
8:30 - 2:30 Monday to Friday
Enrichment Arts Camp:
2:30 - 5:30 Monday to Friday
Your child's schedule will be followed to be sure that he/she is taking class on his/her device and any virtual meetings are kept and followed. Homework and Classwork will be followed up with based on your guidance. Please supply ear buds, headphones, or any personal listening device.
The first priority is homework and education. Each day, students will learn time management skills when budgeting their time between classes and homework.
SFK instructors are energetic, highly trained adults who care for your child's physical well-being, education and emotional security. They will be there to assist with classwork and homework during Learning Lab hours and teach during the extended Enrichment Camp!
Staff members undergo a thorough background check each year. Our instructors are adults who take safety seriously and commit to isolating to slow the spread.
We're proud to announce our partnership with Organic Kids L.A.!
Lunch will be available for purchase ($7-$10/meal) in non-reusable prepackaged meals. Disposable utensils will be provided and safely packed in the meal kits.
Or you are more than welcome to pack a lunch for your child.
A hungry mind is a confused mind. The studio's water fountains are fine for filling up but not for drinking, please pack a container for water!
STEAM Learning library
Finished with Classwork and Homework?
If there's downtime in your child's day, we will be providing a selection of STEAM activities to encourage off-screen time and productive options. From crafts to science experiments, these activities allow for self-sufficiency and socially-distanced fun!
Each activity will either be for strictly one child or thoroughly sanitized between use according to CDC regulations.
Enrichment arts camp
Need additional time? (2:30pm - 5:30pm)
This is not a day care but a professionally lead, skill-enhancing camp. This extended program is prefect if you need more time in the afternoon to get what you need done, or if you simply want your child to learn new skills! These daily sessions will be split up into three different activities lead by our skilled instructors to ensure high-quality classes.
This enrichment time will include activities such as:
Dance (Hip-Hop & Jazz)
Extra Homework Time/Assistance*
Enrichment Camp is for currently enrolled Learning Lab students only.
*If your child needs more time for homework, we will give the option to opt out of the third enrichment activity and set aside a quiet space with a team member supervising to finish up homework/get extra help as needed!

What if my child finishes class earlier than 2:00pm? Is there a half-day option?
Due to high demand and limited space, we currently do not have a half-day option; however, if your child finishes class earlier, we will be proving STEAM activity kits to keep them engaged, busy, and off-screen! Time will be set aside each day for outside snack and lunch. They may also use the extra time for homework and get assistance from our certified team as well.You also are more than welcome to arrange early pick-up as needed.
How will you accommodate individual Zoom meetings?
We're happy to help students manage their Zoom calls! We will keep accounting of every student's appointments. Daily, our staff will help each student prepare for their meeting times and give them a quiet place to focus on the teacher and lesson.
Will someone be there to assist with Classwork/Homework?
Absolutely! Our premier staff will be there to help with any classwork or homework. Everything from reading to writing to math, our high-quality instructors are able to tutor students in any subject in any grade.
Will there be outside time?
Definitely! We will take all students at staggered times outside twice daily. This will allow for a snack time, lunch time, sunshine and fresh air! We are excited to utilize Runway Playa Vista's brand new outdoor area that is anticipated to be complete on August 15. Our goal is to have activities such as outdoor sports and other Physical Education.
