Terms and Policies
- A parent, grandparent, or other adult caregiver must attend with the registered child and be present for the entire class.
- Engaging with your child is a high priority in our classes! Please come dressed in comfortable clothes, ready to sit on the floor, and participate in a time of music-making and learning.
- Auditory stimulation is one key developmental area reinforced in our classes. Therefore, decreasing cell phone usage, side conversations with parents, and other distractions will increase your child’s potential.
- Our classes are designed to be provide developmentally, age-appropriate for each class level. While we understand that families may have childcare emergencies that require a sibling to accompany the registered child to class, it is important to maintain a productive learning environment for all families enrolled. If you find yourself in this situation, please bring an independent activity for the sibling to occupy themselves during the class so that you are able to enjoy an optimal level of engagement with your enrolled child.
- If you have a sibling who differs in age from the class level, who must attend class with the registered child on a regular basis, and will be participating in any of the classroom activities, you will be asked to pay a sibling fee of $100 per semester.
- We understand that children will not always be engaged in each activity as intended, especially at our youngest levels! If you have concerns about your child’s participation, please know your that teacher is always available for assistance! A simple conversation can aid us in unlocking your child’s potential through music!
