Keeping our Classroom Healthy and Happy
The health, safety and well-being of our Kindermusik families has always been a priority for us at Music2Grow. Raising happy, healthy children in a joyful community of music, family and friends is at the heart of what we do.
High standards of cleanliness and hygiene are already in place in all aspects of our Kindermusik program, however we are currently taking additional steps to safeguard your health.
Stay at Home When Unwell
You must stay home if you are your child is unwell – especially with a fever and/or cold, flu-like symptoms such as a cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, fever or runny nose. If you or your child are unwell, please contact us as early as possible to advise your non-attendance and book in for a make-up class. Only return to class when you have fully recovered.
In addition, if you have in the past 7 days: 1) returned to Australia from overseas, 2) been in close contact with an active COVID-19 case or, 3) been to a COVID-19 exposure site as defined by the Chief Health Officer, please do not attend class.
Wash Your Hands Thoroughly and Regularly
Wash your hands before and after your Kindermusik class and at any time that you are re-entering the room (ie. after visiting the bathroom). A 70%+ alcohol-based hand sanitiser will be available in the classroom for your use. You are also welcome to bring your own personal hand sanitiser to use during class.
Maintain Respiratory Hygiene
Cover your cough or sneeze by coughing or sneezing into your elbow or tissue, and then disposing of tissues immediately. Always wash your hands after you have coughed, sneezed or blown your nose.
Physical distancing (or social distancing) is a measure used to limit the transmission of COVID-19 and similar illnesses by reducing exposure between people. The more distance between people and others, the harder it is for viruses to spread.
Our class numbers are capped to allow for a true music and movement experience with space to sing, play and dance. While we encourage you to interact closely with your own child/ren during class, please maintain a 1.5m distance from other adult/child pairs or family groups whenever possible.
Music2Grow has a generous make-up class policy. You can make-up a missed class at any time during a term in which you are enrolled.
You can attend a make-up class in any age-appropriate Kindermusik class where places are available. Please notify us of your absence by email, call or txt (M: 0415 482 264) as early as practical and request a make-up class. Attend as many make-up classes as you require.*
In the event of teacher illness, a make-up class will be scheduled at a suitable time. We will notify you of the cancellation and the scheduled make-up date.
By the way, our make-up class policy applies for classes missed for any reason, including holidays, family events or work. Please advise as early as practical if you will be missing a class – this will allow us to offer your place to a family requiring a make-up class on that day.
What is Music2Grow doing to mitigate the risk of infection?
- Music2Grow is operating under a COVID Safe (WHS) management plan.
- All instruments, props and mats are cleaned and disinfected before and after each class.
- We clean high touch-points and common use equipment such as tables, light switches and door handles regularly.
- Instruments and props are not re-used in the same session.
- Family groups are distanced a minimum of 1.5m from each other for all seated activities and class activities are adjusted to reduce instances of contact.
Thank you again for being partners with me as we implement classroom practices to ensure a safe and enjoyable classroom experience and to provide joyful, enriching, quality learning moments for you and your children!
“Well set up class that keeps kids engaged. My child looks forward to music each week. As soon as we arrive she is on a mission to get through the door to start.”– Lucy C.

* Make-up classes can be taken in any scheduled age-appropriate class where places are available. Please contact us as early as possible to book in (at least the day before the class you would like to make-up in). Make-up classes are not guaranteed and are subject to availability. They are not refundable and cannot be redeemed for credit or cash.
