Frequently Asked Questions
We understand that it can sometimes be confusing when registering your child for classes. There is a lot of information to take in, so we’ve put together some frequently asked questions to help you in the process.
Upon entry to the program a $40 annual registration/membership fee is required per child. Included in this fee are benefits provided by Markel Insurance. Students cannot attend our program without it under any circumstances.
Yes, you can buy gift certificates toward classes and apparel.
Our sessions run for 4-weeks. You can start anytime within a session. We will only prorate for new registrations.
No, you do not need to re-register for each new session. However, your spot is only held if tuition is paid the last week of the current session or the first week of the next session. Enrollment is ONGOING. Students continuing in the program are guaranteed enrollment. Students who leave the program may have to WAIT for and opening.
We have two viewing areas for class observation. However, for the safety of our students and coaches, parents and spectators are NOT allowed inside the gymnastics area during classes. Parent Toddler classes exempt.
Girls are encouraged to wear a leotard. Boys may wear athletic shorts/pants and a t-shirt. Nothing denim, with belt loops or buckles. Children are barefoot in the gym. No jewelry or chewing gum is allowed in the gym.
We maintain an 8-to-1 student/teacher ratio for our Pre School and Beginning/Intermediate classes. In our Parent Toddler classes, the parents are participating with the child in the class therefore we are able to allow more students in the gym.
You can attend class one day or two days per week. To inquire about attending additional days please call or email our office for special pricing and availability.
Unfortunately, we do not offer make-ups. Enrollment in our program is with the understanding that you are paying for the spot in the class, not the days attended. Many of our classes are full and on wait lists which make it difficult to allow a make-up in a different class. If the gym is closed due to a holiday or weather related closure, a make-up day will be scheduled.
At this time, we only offer a free trial class for our Parent Toddler classes.
We accept cash and check only at this time. Please make checks payable to Dardano’s School of Gymnastics.
We evaluate each situation concerning refunds. We will gladly apply a credit on the account toward future classes if deemed appropriate. However, we have a NO REFUNDS policy.
