Ladeeda Parent Testimonial


1. May I try a class before I enroll?
Yes, we invite you to visit a free class!

2. If I miss the start date, do I have to wait until the next session to join a class?
Not at all. Families are invited to join us ANYTIME throughout the semester and you won’t be behind (classes are not sequential). Tuition will be prorated.

3. What is the classroom experience I can expect to find?
Parents can bring their children into a joyful, nurturing classroom environment. Children explore activities freely at their own pace without pressure to perform. If your child is shy, active, or has special needs, just remember, there is no right or wrong way to do things. Please feel free to visit with us about your questions or concerns.

4. What is included in the program fee?
Our program fee includes weekly classes. We also offer optional home materials.

5. Are the home materials required?
In our program, the classroom learning continues at home when you set aside time each day with your child to do unique creative activities. The home materials and recordings are suggested for amazing everyday learning benefits but they are not required (effective summer ‘11). Parents tell us they value these materials and their benefits as much as the class itself.

6. What are the benefits to having my child in this program?
Learning isn’t just a matter of having a qualified teacher. It’s also about welcoming a child into a fellowship with other children in which they feel comfortable. The adults need to feel supported and encouraged, too, as they participate and guide their children through the activities. In each lesson, the educator will help you see how your child learns best. After all, the parent or caregiver is the child’s most important teacher and the home is the most important place for a child’s learning to grow. In each class, children are introduced to a wide variety of musical styles, cultural music, instruments, expressive movement and language activities to foster imagination, literacy and bonding.

7. Why do you offer infant classes beginning with newborns? Would my child benefit more if I wait until they’re a little older and more interactive?
From the moment babies are born, they are ready to learn. Now research tells us what we intuitively knew all along . . . that early integration of music and movement into your child’s daily routine means improving their ability to think, reason, create, and express, all while engaging in a special bonding experience with you.

8. May I bring my spouse? Can the grandparents come?
Yes, spouses are welcome – a lot of dads love coming to class! And grandparents, aunts, uncles and caregivers! There may be other families in your class where different family members or a special friend attend class with their child.

9. What if I’m not musically inclined?
You don’t need musical talent or experience to enjoy our program! Our classes are not only about music. We also focus on the development of your child, getting our bodies moving, and bringing your child into a fun and caring program where they can begin interacting with others.

10. May I bring my other child to class?
If you would like to bring other children, we have several ways to accommodate you. Please feel free to visit with us so we can make arrangements.
Babies who are 6 months or younger may join us FREE in their older sibling’s class. Children age 6 and older may come FREE to their younger sibling’s class. At the preschoolers class, all siblings (any age) are welcome (free!) during the “family time “ portion of the class.

11. I want to join you, but what if I cannot participate for the entire semester due to special circumstances?
Please feel free to visit with us personally about your circumstances. If you are pregnant and expecting your baby sometime during the semester, or planning to move, or have other kinds of special situations we will try to accommodate you so that you can join us for the time you are here.

12. Do you offer make-ups if we miss a class?
You are important members of our class, and we miss you when you are not there. The more consistently you attend, the more progress you’ll see in your child. If you miss a class, please let us know and we’ll help you arrange a makeup class (limit two per family). If you have special circumstances with extended absences, please visit with us to arrange additional make-ups.
Due to the nature of our program, we reserve your space in a particular class. Missed classes are not refunded. Thank you for understanding.

13. I see that you teach sign language in the infant and toddler classes. What is the value in this?
All children naturally communicate with gestures, even before they develop the ability to speak. By teaching simple sign language to children from as young as a few months old, we can help them to convey their emotions and their needs as well as giving them a valuable head start in their social and intellectual development. Sign language opens up an entirely new way of communicating with your child that is easy for both of you to understand.

If you have any other questions, feel free to contact us with them.
We are grateful for your interest and would love to help show you how our program can benefit you and your child.
