Parking Area

Parking is available opposite the firehouse, in our lot accessed from W. Roland Road or street side parking, and on Norfolk La. When on Norfolk La., between PAMD and the fire house, you may park in one of the spaces in front of our building or go to W. Roland Rd. and turn left and park in front of the Fire Company; or turn right onto W. Roland Road and turn right into our parking lot. W. Roland Rd. is one-way out to Edgemont (Rt 352) from Norfolk La. with left side parking for residents, but it is two-way from the fire company West on W. Roland Rd.

NOTE: Please do not park on the right side of W. Roland Rd. between Norfolk La. and Edgemont Avenue as you will be ticketed. This is a main route for the rescue vehicles.

When You Arrive

When dropping your child off, enter through the front entrance and proceed quickly and quietly downstairs to the Lower Level Waiting Room. Children are not permitted in the studio until their class begins. If you arrive early to pick up your child we ask that you kindly wait downstairs as it eases the traffic flow in the front hallway as classes are leaving and entering. We advise that children wait inside the building until a parent or guardian arrives. Rough-housing and running around is not permitted in the downstairs waiting area. Children must be supervised. There is a TOT area and work area.
