Safety is paramount to us at Hoot, and you need to feel just as comfortable with our teachers as you do with the ones in your child’s classroom. That’s why we go through all of the same checks and balances, and more! All of our teachers go through a thorough selection process and the same full safety check that is required in their province or state before working with children.
