The safety of participants and staff is our top priority
We have implemented a number of new measures to ensure the health and safety of every participant enrolled in our workshops and classes. Participants will be seated at separate tables. Our staff have created seating arrangements to allow participants to sit at least 2 metres away from each other. During the program, instructors will ensure that all participants practice social distancing. Participants and staff are required to wear face masks at all times in accordance with York Region public health guidelines, and each learning space will be equipped with hand sanitation stations and a sink for thorough hand washing.
