Revised 21st May 2018
This information is provided to help everyone benefit from Kindermusik
with Suzanne. Our aim is to make your class the best possible experience
within a safe, nurturing and fun environment. Please contact Miss Suzanne by phone
or email if you have any questions. Please ensure that everyone
bringing your child is familiar with all the policies.
Healthy classroom: Please wash hands or use hand sanitizer/wipes
before and after class. Please do not come to class if your child or
accompanying adult is sick or has had a fever within the previous 24
hours. In the case of Rota-virus or stomach flu please allow at least 48
hours before returning to class. (Any siblings who are “not well
enough” to go to school should also not be brought to class).
Instruments are cleaned between classes. Non-slip socks, soft slippers
or indoor shoes should be worn by children and adults.
Food is NOT permitted in the classroom. Some children and adults
have severe food allergies. It is also distracting for children to see
others eating and drinking. If an “emergency” arises during class or
either of you need a drink in hot weather please use the kitchen area.
This policy applies to adults as well as children. Foundations parents may breastfeed or bottle-feed baby at the back of the Hall.
Adult participation: Please come prepared to participate fully in
all the activities as you are as much a part of the class as your child.
Your enthusiastic participation will encourage your children.
Class Discipline: Although you remain responsible for your child’s
behavior and whereabouts, please follow the teacher’s guidelines for
classroom discipline. Providing your child is not in danger of hurting
himself, others, or damaging the instruments, movement during class is
appropriate and acceptable. However, uncontrolled running, shouting or
harmful behavior towards other children is not allowed.
Safety: For safety reasons the main door will be closed shortly
after the start of class. Please watch your child carefully when the door is open and especially
at the end of the class.
Siblings: You are encouraged to make child care arrangements for
siblings during Kindermusik classes. Classes are designed for one-on-one
participation (except for the Mixed-Age Class) and it can be hard to
concentrate on the enrolled child when another is in need of attention.
Please see the class information page for details relevant to your
Attendance & Makeup: If possible, please call or email if your
child will not be in class. Your absence, if known ahead of time, may
allow someone else to “make-up” in your place. If you miss a class you
may request a makeup class. Refer to your class schedule, select a
suitable alternative class and phone or email the teacher in advance. The teacher makeup week is only used if the teacher has been absent.
Announcements: Any announcements or updates will be posted on the bulletin board in the classroom, on my website www.kindermusikwithsuzanne.com, on my Facebook page and via email as appropriate.
Cell Phones: Please turn off cell phones during class.
Clothing: Dress comfortably, we move a lot; dancing, jumping and sometimes even rolling on the floor!
Communication: Please ensure that your teacher is aware of any
information that may affect your child’s learning. Should any concerns
or special situations arise during the semester please call or email Miss Suzanne.
The Hall: The hall is rented. Please respect all parts of the property, both inside and outside.
Instruments: The instruments used in class should be handled with care and respect by both children and adults.
Parking: Parking is available behind the stores. Parking is NOT
allowed on the Church property or in front of the stores across the
Personal Information: Individual confidentiality is maintained.
Please do not ask the teacher for phone numbers or emails of other class
Photos/videos: Please do not take photographs or videos without permission.
Severe Weather/Pandemics: Kindermusik with Suzanne follows
Governmental advice issued to schools on hurricanes and pandemics etc.
If schools are closed so is Kindermusik with Suzanne.
“Things”: Except for Foundations classes, please
try to leave all “things” at home or in the car as these can cause a
distraction to the other children. However, if your child is very
attached to an item please be sensitive to others who may want to share
it as well!
Visitors: Visitors are welcome provided prior arrangements have been
made with the teacher. Please ensure visitors follow all class
Refunds: There are NO refunds for classes missed by students,
classes cancelled due to hurricanes, pandemics etc., or classes falling
on public holidays. Prorated refunds for families who may have to leave
the Island will be considered on an individual basis and ONLY if the
space can be filled.
The teacher make-up week is used at the teacher’s discretion or if the
teacher has been absent. If we have to cancel due to sickness we will try
to give notice by phone and/or email but please be patient in an
