Clifton Cultural Arts Center Children's Class Policies

Clifton Cultural Arts Center @ Bethel Church & Short Vine – Children’s Class Policies

CLASS LOCATION

Your continued support during the temporary use of satellites by CCAC is VITAL to both of our organizations’ livelihoods! Thank you!

Our dance classes will take place across the street from the original CCAC building at Bethel Church, 3722 Clifton Ave, Cincinnati, OH 45220, Phone: (513) 975-0554.

We will now also have dance classes CCAC’s new homebase! CCAC Short Vine, 2728 Short Vine St., Cincinnati, OH 45219, Phone: (513) 497-2860. Please note that there IS NOT walk-over service to this location.


WALK-OVER SERVICE FROM FAIRVIEW CLIFTON GERMAN LANGUAGE SCHOOL

If your child is enrolled in our add-on walk-over service, our teacher will meet them at 3:45pm under the TV in the hallway across from the front office. Walkover service is only available for our classes at Bethel Church!

YOUR CHILD NEEDS to be on our list, so please do not send your child there unless you have done the add-on service.

Parents are responsible for communicating with Fairview teachers that your child will be collected at 3:45pm. Please do not have them come there too early.

Please let us know if they missed school that day. You can text us at 513-494-6526.

If you have any issues, please contact us directly at 513.494.MLCo (6526)…the front office has quite frequently confused us with the Rec Center and will erroneously say that we’ve already left or didn’t come at all, etc.

If your child is enrolled in a class that begins after 4:00pm, note that we DO NOT have a staff member on duty to babysit while children wait for their later classes. If you would still like to purchase the walkover service add-on, you must trust that your child can behave quietly and respectfully in the hallway by themselves.
