Students are expected to attend all scheduled lessons for each spring and fall semester. You are scheduling a specific time period, on a specific day, each week. This means that if your lesson is scheduled for Thursday at 3pm for 30 minutes – it is imperative you arrive on time. If you arrive 5 minutes late, the lesson will still end at its scheduled time. We are very prompt and respectful of time – we expect the students and parents to demonstrate the same respect to us. This includes parents who will be dropping students off AND picking up students at the conclusion of the lesson.
Music Learning for Kids has a specific number of weeks on the calendar. Please plan lesson times and social engagements accordingly.
In the event that an emergency should take place or the student is unable to attend their lesson for other reasons, please contact our office administrator or the student’s teacher as soon as possible at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss possible (though not guaranteed) options. Parents must give at least 24 hours notice if their child will be absent or miss a lesson; otherwise a make up lesson will not be arranged or given. Only under legitimate circumstances will this policy be waived.
Make up lessons are scheduled when there is availability during the school year, or during March break and the summer months.
A Note about PD/PA Days: Lessons taking place at The Children’s House Montessori locations on PD/PA days continue as scheduled. TCH buildings remain open on these days. If the student will be absent and has given sufficient notice to the teacher, a make-up lesson may be arranged according to the teacher’s availability. Otherwise, the usual 24h cancellation policy still applies.
