Notes for Parents Dear Parents • Come early and ready to play! It is good idea to arrive at class 5 -10 minutes early so children have time to remove shoes and outerwear, get drinks, use the bathroom, etc. We would like to start the class right on time. • Please turn off cell phones during class, or at least turn them to vibrate, and leave the room if you need to briefly answer a call. • If instruments or props are placed in your child's mouth, please put them in the box labeled “mouthed” toys so we can make sure we don't share more germs than necessary! • Parent chatting during class is distracting to the children, so please talk with other parents before or after class. • If a child needs a break for any reason, feel free to just exit the room or sit quietly on the side for a few minutes until the child is calm and ready to come back and join our group. • Wear comfortable clothes for lots of movement, and remove shoes before class. • Bathrooms are available right next to the room for diaper changing and other use. • If you would like, you may bring a water bottle. (Sometimes music is a thirsty work!) • Repeat songs and activities at home throughout the week! Children learn by repetition, so this is a great way to get the most out of your music class. Lyrics to many of our songs will be provided so you can sing and practice at home. Thank you.
