Change in Enrollment
Kindermusik with Danielle offers ongoing enrollment
for all of our studio Kindermusik classes and lessons from September to July.
This means that once you join us you stay enrolled, with all of the benefits of
enrollment, unless you let us know you need to withdraw. The studio is
closed for the month of August, but your membership and class spot is saved
unless you ask to withdraw. No need to re-enroll!
Our Studio Year starts in September and finishes at the end of
July, 11 months of classes and payments, unless you decide to
"Pause". You can withdraw and then start up again at any time
of the year. Just be sure to submit your change before the 15th of the month, so
that we can cancel your tuition charge in time. Please be aware that all
make-up classes must be done while you are actively enrolled. You will lose all
make-ups once you withdraw. Sometimes a better plan is to continue to stay
enrolled so that you can don't lose the opportunity to make up the classes you have missed! Your
space will also be opened to new families and there is no guarantee of it being
available upon your return.
Withdrawing from classes is simple, but please consider the thoughts below
before making your decision:
Make Kindermusik a priority, because music
education should come first.
We understand. It is hard to do all that is out there right now for young
children. There are lots of choices of activities and limits on the wallet. But
we strongly believe that a solid early childhood music education has lifelong
lasting benefits. It is more than just music. In Kindermusik, it is about
developmental skills, emotional and social skills, cognitive and language
skills. Lessons are about routine, goals, effort, and achievement. All musical
experiences are about exploring with creativity and building confidence. We are
truly shaping young minds that some day will indeed change the world.
"It's Just a Phase"
Children will go through phases. A teething phase. A "do it myself" phase.
An "I don't want to practice" phase. But phases do indeed end. They
are not permanent. The best thing you can do is support your child during a
phase, and not change the routines and rituals, since those are vital to
helping a child navigate through a phase. We are willing to stick it out
through phases, and hope you will as well.
Is your child seeming un-interested in the
activities in Kindermusik?
It is ok! They do that sometimes. We meet children at their level, in their
phase. It is why they are free to walk around the room. It may annoy you, as you
want your child to participate in every single activity, right? But this is
about supporting them in what they need. Letting them have a bit of
choice. Try doing some of the activities at home, in their own
environment. Use your Kindermusik Online access. Trust us. Hang tight, they
will come back around.
If you find a change is needed.
We know that schedules change (including nap schedules!), but do not withdraw
simply because your schedule changes. If your current class isn't working for
your schedule, we can easily find a time that does. And occasionally you may
find that a switch of classes/teachers is best. All of our educators are
extremely talented and trained, but each one is also unique. If you would like
to try a different class/teacher, just let us know!

you within 24 hours of your submission.
