Information and Class Policies

Register Early

Although you may join classes at any time throughout the programme, you are encouraged to register early since class sizes are limited and may fill quickly. Registering before classes are scheduled to begin also ensures your child's required 'At Home Materials' are ready for you at your first class.

Make-up Classes

Classes will be made up in the event of teacher illness or inclement weather. You will be notified of the cancellation and the scheduled make-up day.

Non-enrolled Siblings

For age-determined programmes, it is ideal for a parent to bring only the enrolled child(ren) to class in order to give full attention to that child and fully participate in class. Emergency exceptions are considered; please call your teacher in advance for approval.


Free Visits

At certain times throughout each programme, I am happy to schedule free visits to classes for prospective families and friends of those families currently enrolled in class. Please call me on 01904 636760 or 07982 607674 for availability.


Refund Policies

Refunds may be requested due to an unexpected family move or serious illness necessitating withdrawal from class. I regret that refunds cannot be offered for accessed digital 'At Home Materials' or non-attendance at individual class sessions. In some situations a credit voucher for a future session of classes may be given instead of a cash refund. Any refund requests will be considered on an individual basis.


Payment Options

All fees include tuition and the required 'At Home Materials'.

Cuddle & Bounce, Sing & Play, Wiggle & Grow, Laugh & Learn, Family Time

£38 for a five-week theme (£30 tuition + £8 digital home materials)
£75 for a ten-week term - 2 x 5 week themes incl. 2 sets of digital home materials.

Young Child (5 - 7)

60 minutes
16 week programme:
Semester 1 - £175 (with glockenspiel + bag)
Semester 2 - £155
Semester 3 - £170 (dulcimer)
Semester 4 - £160 (recorder)

Payment can be made in full at the time of registration or in two installments.


Late Fees

Fees that are over one week late would mean you and your child would be unable to attend that and any future session.


Sibling Discount

If you register your child and their sibling/s in the same Kindermusik class, purchasing just one set of the required 'At Home Materials' you are eligible for a discount on one child's tuition fee. This means that a sibling pays £2 instead of £6 tuition/class.

If you register them both in Kindermusik programmes but their age determines different classes you will receive a 20% discount on both children's tuition fees.


When to Arrive

Please plan to arrive 5-10 minutes before the class is due to start. If you are late, please join the class as quietly as possible to avoid disruption.


What to Bring

We encourage you and your child to participate in the class without your shoes on - barefoot is best! Please dress appropriately - remember, there is a fair amount of movement, so casual, comfortable clothing.

Please try not to bring a lot of things to class; toys and drinking cups can be a distraction. However, if you are attending the Cuddle & Bounce class, you will need a changing bag for baby and a towel, blanket or mat.
