What should I discuss in my introductory video?

The introductory video is intended to convey a bit of your personality. You can use the time to tell us about yourself, read a story, sing a song, play an instrument, or otherwise give us an idea of who you are.

Do the activities I direct have to directly relate to my educational background or employment experience?

As an Activity Director, we trust that you will use your judgement in order to craft an engaging experience. If you feel comfortable and competent to share the content you have created, give it a try!

How should I structure the frequency of my activities?

The frequency can be at your discresion, depending on your schedule!

Do I have to get my proposed activity approved?

As an Activity Director, we know that you will use your judgement in order to craft an engaging experience. Prior to appearing online, your activity will be reviewed. Kids Connected personnel will review the activity summary and details, and reserves the right to decline to host an activity if it seems contrary to the morals or standards of Kids Connected or otherwise inconsistent with our brand.

How far in advance must I provide an activity summary?

The sooner you provide your activity summary, the sooner we can approve it and get it listed on the website and begin marketing your activity. However, do not hesitate to provide your summary as your proposed start date approaches as enrollees may be looking for activities at the last minute.

What are the fees to be a Kids Connected Activity Director?

We keep earning money simple. If you get a registration in a class, you get paid. Contact our operations team today and discover how much fun and rewarding teaching online can be!

What do the fees to Kids Connected cover?

Kids Connected takes care of the details so you don't have to! We take care of billing, scheduling, payment processing fees, marketing, and provide the platform and technology to bring students and teachers together. 

How do I determine what to charge for my activity?

We make it simple. 30 minute classes are $7.50 and 60 minute classes are $15.00. This is to give consistency and predictability to parents. 

How many students can participate in each activity?

Classes can have anywhere from 1 to 25 students. We limit class sizes to no more than 25 students so teachers have the ability to interact with students and there is time and opportunity for questions. Interaction is a crucial part of learning.

What is my employment status if approved?

All Activity Directors are 1099 contractors and therefore responsible for Social Security, Medicare, Federal, and State income taxes. 1099 contractors are not eligible for worker's compensation benefits.

Once I am approved what do I need to get started?

Every Activity Director must have a video capable computer or tablet and a reliable internet connection, a zoom account, plus a great attitude! Once you are approved you will be able to create activities and get started.

Does Kids Connected offer any platform other than live activities?

At the moment Kids Connected only offers live activities. No pre-recorded classes are available.

Is Kids Connected nationwide?

Although Kids Connected is available worldwide to anyone with an internet connection, our initial reach will be mainly in the United States.
