What are your covid policies? Safety is our utmost priority. To ensure everyone safety and comfort we have the following guidelines in place.

Wee Jam Covid 19 Live class safety Precautions

Class sizes will be limited.

Families are required to wear masks when traveling to/from the parking lot to their “family zone.”

Family zones will be clearly marked and spaced 10’ apart end to end. Families are asked to bring their own blanket to sit on within their family zone.

All children should remain within arms reach of an adult and remain on their family blanket. If a child needs to roam we ask that you leave your family zone from the back area of your zone. Movement away from other families is fine and often necessary, but parents must keep at least 6’ distance from other families and be within arms reach of their child.

Each new family will receive their own instrument pack. This will include a pair of egg shakers, a pair of sticks and a scarf for each participant. Parents/caregivers will bring family sets to every class. A Music Together cinch bag will be provided for each family.

Each family zone will be equipped with a play along bucket. These items are to borrow. All of the items inside will be thoroughly sanitized with lysol after each class. If you are not comfortable with borrowing a play-along kit, simply check “play along bonus” to your registration. A $30 fee will be added to your tuition and you will receive your own play along kit to keep and bring back and forth to class.

If you or anyone that you have been in close contact with is not feeling well, stay home!

In the event of inclement weather (rain, snow, tropical storms, excessive wind etc.) we will hold class via zoom.

By registering you agree to these term and understand there are no refunds or credits for missed or cancelled outdoor classes. Makeups are available but cannot be guaranteed as we must be extremely strict with the number of families in any given class.

Why mixed aged classes? Music together mixed aged classes are designed for families to participate together. Mixed-age classes provide a rich learning environment because children of different ages thrive when they interact with each other. Younger children watch the older ones and often try to mimic things the things they are doing, which they might not be ready for on their own. Older children enjoy helping and sharing with the "little" ones and often thrive being the “leaders” in class. This approach is based on research from music education, early childhood development, and family relationships, as well as our 20 years experience in the field.

What if I can’t sing or dance? The program is not designed with performance in mind. Instead we foster a fun music learning environment where children learn from their favorite teacher….YOU. Your children look up to you and mimic the grown-ups they love, so sing out no matter how you think it sounds, because you will foster a love of music in your children that will be an everlasting gift.

How often do classes meet? Each semester lasts 10 weeks and class length is 45 minutes per class. We offer three sessions per year.

Will I know the songs? A few songs are classic children’s music that you may already know, but included in your tuition are 2 cd’s and a songbook so you can listen to the music at home, in the car or anywhere. Don't worry they are really fun so you won't get sick of hearing them. Each semester has a different collection, no repeats until your third year!

Refunds and credits will not be given for classes that cannot happen outdoors.

Make up Classes- Due to the physical limitations of space due to Covid policies, makeups cannot be guaranteed. We ask that each family schedule their makeups through the contact form as soon as possible and limit the number of makeups to two per semester. This will provide ample opportunity for families to find a space that works for them. Makeups do not have to be in the same week that you have missed class.

You agree to let Wee Jam know as soon as possible if you plan on missing a class, so we can open the space to families that need makeups. We understand that will not always be possible, but appreciate any advance notice.

Photos- Occasionally Wee Jam teachers, families and professionals will take pictures during class to use for promotional purposes. By registering you agree that any photos taken of you during class can be used for this purpose, unless you explicitly request via email that you prefer to be excluded from photos taken in class. We respect everyone's right to privacy and will ensure that any families that reach out to us prior to the start of class will not be photographed.
