How to prepare for your first play-date
Congratulations! You’ve enrolled your child in their first-ever Tiny Broadway play-date!
To set them up for the best possible first play-date experience, follow these 4 simple steps:
1. Download Zoom
You will need to install an app called Zoom (link below). Your kids will use Zoom to connect to the live play-date on Tiny Broadway. Downloading the app is super easy and takes about 10 seconds. You don’t need to set up a personal Zoom account to access Tiny Broadway play-dates, so you can stop when you get to the sign-up screen. Click here to download Zoom.
2. Watch A Quick Zoom Tutorial
Learn basic Zoom controls to help your kids connect with their artist at Tiny Broadway. Here is a video to help guide you.
3. Test Zoom
Join a test meeting with your kids to make sure Zoom is working properly on your device. Here is a video to help guide you through this.
Have your kids practice the following:
- Turn off / turn on microphone
- Turn off / turn on video
- Click the ‘Participants’ button and use the ‘raise hand’ button
- Click the ‘Chat’ button and type ‘hello!’ into the chat box
Five Minutes Before Play-Date Starts…
4. Hop on your Zoom link
Please try and arrive 5 minutes before your play-date starts to ensure there are no technical issues.
Play-dates are best conducted in a quite space, without a lot of background noise to ensure a successful experience for all attendees.
If you experience technical issues…
Check out Zoom’s comprehensive help center.
Note: Tiny Broadway artists will do their best to assist you if you experience tech issues during play-date, but remember – their primary focus is on creating an excellent learning experience for all kids, so their ability to troubleshoot with individual families is limited.
