Classroom FAQs

What's expected of my child in class?

When you come to our classes, all we expect of your children is to be themselves! This will look different for each child; some may sit in your lap and observe, some may wander around the room, some may jump in right away. Your children are never required to sit in the circle or expected to conform to an adult's idea of participation. As long as the children are safe, they are free to be themselves. And believe it or not, but you are your child's most important music teacher right now—so it doesn't matter if you can't carry a tune in a bucket or have two left feet!  Your genuine participation and modeling in class and at home is all your children need to learn to love to make music. So we invite you to sing, dance and have fun along with the other familes in class as we create the relaxed, playful environment the children need in order learn best. It's so easy!

We'd like you to think of this class as a 'music immersion' class where we only "speak" the language we are learning -- music! So we kindly ask that you please wait to socialize or use your cell phone until after class and help us create a music-only environment.

 

What if I miss a class during the semester?

Each child is allowed up to 3 makeup classes per 10-week session, as space permits. All make-ups must be scheduled online using our make-up scheduler. Makeups must be scheduled at least a day in advance and must be used during the current semester. Please schedule make-ups as soon as you need them. If you have questions regarding this policy or have a special request, contact us at: admin@kidsmusicGR.com.

 

What if my child is sick?

Please keep your child home at the first signs of a cold, a fever over 100, sneezing and color to runny nose mucus. They must be fever free and not have vomited for at least 24 hours before returning to class.

 

Is it OK for more than one adult to come to class?
Yes, parents, grandparents,or caregivers are welcome to attend class at any time, no need to ask!

 

Can we bring along an older sibling, cousin or friend to a class?

Yes. Additional children are welcome to drop in on a class. A drop in fee of $5 per child per class will be charged if this happens three or more times during the semester.

 

Can we bring food, drinks or toys into class?

Please no food, drinks, toys or stuffed animals in class (exception: ‘lovey’- type objects that are emotionally important to your child). Otherwise, these things will create a distraction in class. You are welcome to nurse or bring a sippy cup of water into class; we ask that you please save snacks for after class.
