What does Mixed Ages mean?
In each class we strive to create a musically rich, developmentally appropriate environment where the whole family can enjoy music and nurture skills at the level right for each child. Mixed aged classes provide a rich learning environment because children of different ages thrive when they interact with each other; the babies are fascinated by the older children and the older kids enjoy helping and sharing. This approach is based on research form music education, early childhood development and family relationships.
Can I bring my older sibling to class?
We know that sometimes school takes breaks and you have 2 children instead of 1 to take care of. Please feel free to bring your older sibling, but there will be a $10 charge each time paid to Twinkle Together and given to your teacher.
What if I miss a class during a 10 week session?
We offer 2 makeups during a 10 week session. Scheduling of makeups is done online. Your teacher or center director will supply you with instructions on how to do this once registered in a class. Makeups must be made during the session in which class is missed; makeups do not carry over to the next session; therefore we encourage you to use your makeups.
Can I switch to a different class?
Requests for class changes must be done in the first 2 weeks of class. Changing classes can only occur if there is room in which you want to switch. No class changes will be made after the 3rd week of class.
What if I start classes after the semester begins?
We do not accept families after the 2nd week of class, so if you join in those 2 weeks, we do offer 2 makeups during a session. We do not prorate for missed classes.
What if I need to cancel my registration?
If you cancel before classes start, you will receive a full refund. Once classes begin you will need to speak to the center director.
Anything else a parent should know?
Please do not bring food or toys into the classroom. Please arrive on time to class. Both of our locations are "no shoes" facility , so please remove before sitting down in the circle. We also have a Policies page Makeups & Other Policies that you can refer to as well.
