  • Wear comfortable clothing to fit the class you are attending.


Miss Laura’s Rules and Guidelines:

  1. 3 Foot Rule! Stay within 3 feet of your child at all times! (Running is a little different, if yours is a fast runner. But, you must be there for them!)
  2. Do not have conversations during class. Please be considerate. Keep conversations to a minimum. A conversation even on the side of the class is a MAJOR disruption (rude) and not fair to me and all the other paying customers. Don’t wait to be asked to stop, just do the right thing. There’s time to talk before and even more time after, please be considerate of this. There are coffee shops that Cottage Grove offers, the Library is close by, a playground to the back of the Armory, these are all great places to get to know each other, catch-up and chat. I thank you from the bottom of my heart for complying. 🙂 Update: You all have been so awesome since the classes started in November. I LOVE teaching in Minnesota! I’ve been places where people came and clipped coupons instead of participate. Ugh. Not You! You are Awesome!!! Go Minnesota!
  3. Please use your phone for pictures, but tuck it away otherwise. (Share your pics with me! If you approve, It will possibly get used for future promos.)
  4. Miss Laura is the leader. Follow her directions, as parents need to participate just as much as the kids. Your child NEEDS to see YOU participate. This gives ‘tiny-them’ the permission to enjoy the class! (Miss Laura understands you may have babe #2 in your arms or in a stroller, participate as much as possible with your child-on-the-move!)
  5. Miss Laura is not a disciplinarian. I will do my best to guide your child to follow and participate. I use a lot of creative language to help them think things through. The rest is up to you. If your child does not participate, it does not mean that they ‘hate the class’. It means they need to be given the chance to ‘warm-up’ to the class. Did you know that there is a ‘Third Class Charm’ that happens? By the third class, your child will know the routine and will be more comfortable. *You just have to give them the chance*.
  6. Suggestions on ‘How to give them a chance’:
    1. Go softly to the side of the classroom with them and watch for awhile, pointing out the things that are going on while you are watching. Stay engaged in what is happening in class.
    2. Step out of the room and come back after a bit. This let them see more of what fun there is in store for them when they are a bit more comfortable.
    3. Leave any frustration out in outer space somewhere. Fitness is supposed to be stress relieving, but I know toddlers aren’t.
    4. Encourage your child to see the good in things, and try not to bring to light ‘what they aren’t doing’. They will do things eventually. Sometimes they sit on the side through the whole class, then go home and lead a complete class with their stuffed animals! Kids are amazing! They soak things in when we think otherwise!
