Rules of our Center
Food, Drinks and Toys: Please put them away during class, preferably securely outside of the classroom.
Sick kids: If your child has had a fever (100 degrees or more) or vomiting within 24 hours of class, please keep him or her home. Please exercise common sense when it comes to communicable illness.
Phones and cameras: We try to create an environment where music is the focus. Please turn all phones off and put them away during class to prevent disruptions. Pictures may be taken in class during the final two weeks of the session.
Sing with us: Adult participation is vital. You are your child’s most important role model in class!
Let your child move freely: If a child is old enough to move independently, please resist the urge to move her arms for her, or force him to stay on your lap. Young children learn best when given the freedom to experience music in their own way.
Nannies and au pairs: They are role models for children, and their participation is of utmost importance. We want them to know how much we value them. Please discuss the importance of their role with your caregivers and help us communicate if there are language issues. And please share these rules with them.
Extra children: Older siblings are welcome on school holidays. But if you wish to bring an extra child to other classes, please ask your teacher. If the class size can accommodate another child, the cost will be $20.
Extra adults: Grandparents and other adults are always welcome.
Make-up classes: You may make up a missed class twice during the 10-week semester. Please schedule your make-up class on our website.
Switching classes: Sometimes friends have trouble being in the same class. You may switch to another class if this becomes a struggle you would like help with.

Inclement Weather Policy
If I need to cancel class I will post it on the Homepage of this website, on my calendar page and also post on MotH. Since nearly everyone walks, I nearly always have class. I will most likely attempt to hold class regardless of school closings for inclement weather. If the weather makes it too dangerous for you to attend please make the decision that is best for the safety of your family. If you have a scheduling conflict or a sickness during a particular week you can write me to arrange attending a different class time if it can be worked out.

*Autumn, Winter and Spring semesters are 10 weeks long. Summer sessions are shorter. The Summer song collections are a mix of songs from the nine regular 10 week semesters.
