General Classroom Policies:
You are responsible for supervising your child while on the premises together at all times. While we do our best to provide a safe, child appropriate environment occasionally accidents happen. Sonoma County Children's Music and it's agents are not responsible for accidental injury while you or your child are on the premises. Occasionally we take pictures in class for promotional purposes, your enrollment confers permission to use any photographs taken in class unless you inform us otherwise.
Pre-K Kindermusik Classes: There are two Semesters per school year and two short sessions during the Summer. Each Semester has two 8-week sessions, except Family Time, which is 10 weeks. Each session is $150 (Family time is $200 for the first child) and includes 8 (10 Family Time) weekly classes, makeup classes if your child is ill or out of town on class day, and a new CD and home materials every 4 weeks. There is a one week break after each Semester that serves as a makeup week if your instructor cancels a class due to emergency or illness. Sign your child up for the entire Semester at once (two 8 week sessions) and save $20 at checkout with coupon code SEM20. There is a $10 registration fee two weeks before a class begins. There is a $20 cancellation fee and no cancellations two weeks before a session begins. Credit may be given in the cases of medical emergencies at the discretion of SRCM.
Pre-K Themes & Materials: We have new "themes" every four weeks for the entire year. A theme is a central topic that the songs, movement activities, stories and pretend play is built around. Children learn best through play and Kindermusik creates fun imaginative themes that children can relate to. Your child will receive a new CD, physical and digital home materials every 4 weeks at the beginning of a new theme. The digital home materials are available online at your home activity center. They include things such as storybooks, video field trips, math and logic games, videos of children doing a musical activity at home, craft activities, recipes, sing-alongs, developmental information for parents and printable activities. For babies we also have baby massage, exercise and sign language videos. Your child can move up to a new level at the beginning of any theme, please email your instructor two weeks before the beginning of a new theme if you want to switch days or move up.
Kindermusik for the Young Child & Instrument lessons: These classes are sequential and must be taken in correct order as skills build upon previous semesters. Instructor approval is required for all new students prior to registration. There is a $20.00 cancellation fee and no cancellations two weeks before the start of a session. Credit may be given in cases of medical emergencies at the discretion of Sonoma County Children's Music. Makeups for group classes are only available when there is more than one section of a class.
