Can I bring my other chidren to class?
Siblings are always allowed in classes where there is a family gathering time at the end, such as Young Child, or Imagine That. Additionally, when you have siblings enrolled in their own respective age appropriate and current Kindermusik Stepping Stones class, they are allowed to come to their siblings class for free as a courtesy to the parents. They will be expected to be non-disruptive to the other classmates, however, as a courtesy to the other families. Also, as a professional courtesy, siblings may come on a very occasional basis to cover for school professional development days.
My child is sick and can't make it to class. Can I do a make-up class?
It is to your great benefit to do all the classes offered as they provide important reinforcement of concepts through creative exploration and repetition. That being said, children do get sick, and families do go away from time to time. Just call or email and we can usually arrange for a make-up class for your child. They do need to be taken during the same semester you are signed up for.
Oops, I missed the beginning of the semester. May I join at any time?
Of course. While you will have missed out on the opening lessons, you are welcome to begin the process of learning at any time. The cost of tuition can be pro-rated to reflect the classes that have already happened.
What if I try the class and find that it isn't what we were expecting...can we get a refund?
We offer an opportunity to have a preview class if you desire. Classes are offered on a first paid enrolment basis, however, and families waiting for a preview before signing up may be disappointed to find out that their preferred time slot is no longer available following a preview. I encourage families to enroll early to avoid situations like that. If you are unhappy after 4 successive classes, I will refund you for classes not yet taken. The home materials are yours to keep and enjoy.
What about inclement weather?
Edmonton has a challenging winter that provides some questionable driving days. If the weather goes below - 30°C we will schedule a make-up class. That being said, due to the tight scheduling of programming throughout the week and from one semester to the next, only one weather-cancelled class will be made up each term. Feel free to do an extra class througout the week to make up for the one missed.
I would love to join, but I need some payment flexibility. What options do you have?
Registration forms need to be accompanied by a registration deposit of $75 to hold your place. I accept cash, cheques, and email transfers. Once you submit your registration form, you can email transfer your deposit to
The balance is then brought to the first class, either as cheque, cash, or email transfer paid the day of class. If you require another option, please speak to Heather personally for your best direction.
