Q: What makes Music Time for Tots different?

A: Our classes are different to some other music groups that you may have heard about because of our carefully structured two-yearly cycle of themes that have been chosen to be interesting and relevant to our very young pupils, and which is also one of the reasons that discerning parents often choose our program and style of class for their children. We teach the children about simple musical concepts by moving our bodies, and through making and listening to music, and fostering a thoughtful, yet fun attitude towards all different types of musical styles. 


Q: How do I register? 

A: You can go to our registration page and register. You may also pay for your class there as well.


Q: How many children are in the classes?

A: We keep our classes to a reasonable size to enable even the shyest and quietest of children to have their turn without fear of being overlooked or missing out, and we take the time to help develop your child's confidence and find their inner voice through our fun and lively musical activities. And if your child is already brimming with confidence and enthusiasm, they will definitely enjoy all the action songs, musical instruments, and jumping around that we do! In addition, our carefully planned class structure benefits all children by encouraging listening, helping them learn about waiting, sharing and taking turns, tidying up and also working and playing together as part of a team. Be assured that there are plenty of instruments and props used during any given activity, for all children registered in the class!


Q: How long do the sessions last?

A: The Fall, Winter & Spring programs run 10 weeks long. The Summer program runs 6 weeks long. The music part of the session is about 45 minutes. Our sessions are meant to be a relaxed and enjoyable experience for everyone, children and adults alike, so please feel at your ease while at class - we're all parents and understand what it's like!


Q: Can Daddy bring my child instead?

A: OF COURSE! Daddies are always welcome, as are Grandparents, Aunties, Uncles, and Nannies. Our music classes welcome everyone who wants to come!


Q: What is your re-registration policy?

A: Priority registration for classes is offered to children who participate in previous classes. Enrolled students who wish to re-register for the next class must do so by the 8th week of the current class in order to be guaranteed a place in class.


Q: My child will not be attending the Fall Session. When can I register for the Winter, Spring or Summer classes?

A: Families may submit a registration form at anytime for any class. Just specify what session you are signing up for.


Q: If we have a conflict with the class one week, are we able to come at a different class?

A: Though we don't encourage switching classes as this could lead to overcrowding and inconsistency in class attendance; however, we will try our best to accommodate you. The missed class must be made up during the current session  by going to a different location.


Q: I have twins/multiple children. what is the parental attendance policy, and is there a reduce fee for siblings?

A: We love twins! Though we prefer a 1:1 ratio of adult to child, we do highly suggest that you have a friend, grandparent or another adult supervise the other child in an effort to foster adult/child interaction and make it more enjoyable for you as well. In the case of multiple siblings, the first child will pay the regular fee of $140.00 and the second will pay $110.00. To keep the cost lower we will provide one set of materials per family (CD and booklet with songs). Infants up to 11 months of age may attend class for free.


Q: Are there make-up classes in case of bad weather?

A: We follow the Montgomery County Public Schools inclement weather policy. That being said, classes will be canceled only if there is no school. We do allow for one or two make-up classes which will be added at the end of the session if needed. 


Q: When and how do I pay for my classes?

A: Payment is due before classes start. You may go to our registration page to register your child/children and then we will invoice you through PayPal. Again, if you have any questions feel free to contact us.


Q: What is your refund policy? 

A; A full refund will be given if you withdraw BEFORE classes start. Once started, the refund will be prorated, based on the remaining classes on the calendar, and there will be a $20.00 processing fee for the cancellation. After the 4th week of classes, no refunds will be given.
