On behalf of While They’re Little, Inc., welcome to Music Together®®! The following are some guidelines intended to make everyone’s class experience as enjoyable as possible.
- Please be prompt - it will make your child’s adjustment easier (and you don’t want to have them miss hearing their name in the “Hello” song!).
- Dress comfortably. You will be moving around, as well as sitting on the floor.
- Adults, as well as children who are able to walk in, are required to remove shoes before entering classrooms. Please leave shoes in hallway outside of classrooms.
- Please leave all diaper bags and strollers in the hallway outside the classrooms.
- There is no eating or drinking permitted in the classrooms (this includes bottles and sippy cups). Please feed yourself and your child before or after class time. If your child needs to be fed during class, please feel free to do so in the hallway outside the classroom. Breastfeeding in the classroom is permitted and encouraged but please try schedule feedings before or after class.
- We ask that parents/caregivers of oral-staged children help us to separate any mouthed, or “wet”, instruments for subsequent cleaning. Please place any instrument your child has mouthed into the “Wet Bin”.
- Please turn off cell phone ringers (vibrate is acceptable) during class time. Cell phone use in the classroom is not permitted. In case of emergencies, please step out of the room to take the call.
- Please do not diaper children directly on the floor/carpet (use of a diapering mat or other kind of blanket is acceptable). Please take all dirty diapers with you and discard offpremises. [Great Neck Arts Center Classes: There are bathrooms near our classrooms equipped with baby changing stations for your use.]
- Play your CD at home or in the car as frequently as possible (provided it is enjoyable!), especially during the first few weeks of class. Make it available for your child to listen to while she/he is playing or before nap or bedtime. Use the songbook to help you remember the songs or to play along if you play an instrument. At bedtime or naptime, try using the songbook instead of a regular book.
- New parents will receive Music and Your Child: A Guide for Parents and Caregivers. Please read through that, as well, for more information on a child’s musical development and the role that you play on that journey.
Parents and caregivers, have fun in class! Enjoy your time with your child or children. Try to arrive a few minutes early so you can begin class feeling relaxed. Find your own way to enjoy singing and moving. When your child sings, plays, dances, and coos or squeals in class or at home, join in!
