Each child is special, unique, and wonderfully loved! My favorite sounds at Kindermusik are the giggles of joy from children AND parents as they play and learn together! There is no "right" way to experience Kindermusik. I encourage you to be sensitive to your child and participate the way he or she is the most comfortable.
Some children may stay close and quiet, others may be moving around. These differences are normal and expected. If your child is roaming, it is perfectly acceptable to go and join your child and simply participate in the current activity where he or she is. If your child is unhappy, you are welcome to step outside of the class and meet his or her need and then join us again when comfortable.
Each and every Kindermusik activity is based on research and designed for whole child learning and the fun and joy you will experience in class is part of the community we are building together. My joyful task is to facilitate these activities, share information about your growing child, and provide opportunities to strengthen YOUR BOND with your child. YOU are your child's most important teacher.
I am committed to a classroom that is clean and healthy for your family, and
ensuring that participation is safe for all those involved. Our instruments and
manipulatives are cleaned and sterilized regularly. Hand sanitizer, tissues,
and anti bacterial wipes are always available, as are areas for changing
diapers. Nursing mothers are welcome to nurse any where they are comfortable.
If you or your child is
sick, please be considerate of other children and adults in our classes and
stay home to get better. Opportunities for makeup classes are available each
week by attending another class, so get well!
For the safety of our babies, siblings younger than 6 are not permitted to attend Kindermusik Cuddle & Bounce. The whole family is invited to participate in the Laugh & Learn and Move & Groove Sharing Time at the end of class. Monday Wiggle & Grow classes are also open for families to enroll children ages birth - 7 years together. Please let me know if you have other situations involving a non-enrolled sibling - we can work things out on an individual basis.
We follow the Kearney Public School's severe weather decisions. If the KPS School District cancels school or dismisses early for severe weather, we will not meet for Kindermusik either - snuggle in safely together at home!
You have made a financial investment with your Kindermusik enrollment, and I
want to be sure you know how to get the full value of this commitment. First,
be excited about coming to class consistently and on time. Research shows
that the continuity and longevity of an ongoing Kindermusik
experience is the greatest benefit to your child's development.
Second, commit to
spending time with your child accessing your digital home materials frequently.
Using the @Home materials together builds confidence, positively influences
your class experience, expands learning, and strengthens your child's bond with
To keep payments simple and easy, the cost of the entire session of 32 classes is divided equally over 9 months. So your payment is the same each month whether there are 3, 4, or 5 classes during the month. We also have a great value in unlimited make up classes. A class missed for any reason can be made up by attending another Kindermusik class at anytime during the session. I understand that changes occur in all of our lives, so if you are unable to complete our school year session, please let me know by email before the first of the month to cancel the remainder of your automatic monthly payments.
I am dedicated to you as a support professional and welcome communication with you! (Check your email regularly and join my facebook page to stay up-to date.)
