Policies

As a school, our mission is to provide each of our families with an excellent early childhood educational experience.  To that end we have developed policies to ensure that our business and educational practices remain at the highest standard.  Your cooperation with the following policies will insure that we can continue to service our families in the best way possible.

Registration Fee
currently, there is no registration fees. If any changes in regards to registration fee should occur, the notice will be published on our web site.

Payment Schedule
registrations are processed in the order received to assure fairness to all registrants. Full tuition payment is due at the time of registration. Registrations are accepted with full payment only and families may not attend classes until tuition is paid in full. Payment can be made by credit card, PayPal fund transfer or check.  We do not accept payment by cash.  

Refunds
refunds are not given after the 1st class. All cancellations made prior to the first class will be subject to a $25 cancellation fee, if the registration has been made through www.musictogetherwithmiri.com 

If the registration has been made through www.certifikid.com the cancellation fee will be $38. 

Registration 
registrations are accepted and processed on a first come, first serve basis during each enrollment period.  When pre-registration is offered for an upcoming semester, currently registered families will have the opportunity to register prior to the public having access to open registration.  A spot in class can only be held with complete payment.

For detailed information regarding the tuition, please refer to our tuition page.

Withdrawals
families wishing to withdrawal from class must do so before the registration deadline for each semester (typically the first day of classes). An administrative processing fee of $25 is non-refundable (If the registration has been made through www.certifikid.com the cancellation fee will be $38). Families are responsible for class attendance. Non-attendance does not constitute a withdrawal and all tuition fees are forfeited if the school office is not informed of your withdrawal before the registration deadline.  If circumstances necessitate withdrawal from class, please call the school office. 

Pro-rating
Music Together With Miri does not pro-rate for missed classes. Exceptions may be made at the discretion of Music Together with Miri due to unexpected prolonged illness or relocation out of the area. Families are afforded two make-up per semester in the event of any missed classes during the semester.

Class Cancellation Policy
Music Together With Miri reserves the right to cancel a class with insufficient enrollment. In the event of a cancellation, a full refund, including registration fee (if applicable), will be issued if other class arrangements cannot be made.
 
Materials
each family receives a materials packet containing two CD’s and a songbook of the current song collection for each semester they are registered. New families will also receive, “Music Together® at Home: Helping Your Child Grow Musically”.

Materials: CDs, songbook, and guidebook are nonreturnable unless unopened and suitable for sale.

Siblings 
infants 8 months and under by the date of registration may attend classes free of charge with a registered sibling. Infants’ names and birth dates must be indicated on the registration form. There are a limited number of infant sibling spaces in each class.  Failure to include this information of the registration form may result in a class change.  

Older siblings (5+years old) of registered students may visit 2 classes only per semester, provided that the visit is prearranged with the school office. Visitation spots are available on a first come, first serve basis.

Photography/video 

occasionally classes at Music Together With Miri are photographed and/or videotaped. These photographs/videos are sometimes used for publicity purposes. Parents are giving a permission for photographs to be published in print as well as online (Facebook page). Parents or children names will not be printed.

As our classes are participatory and educational experiences between adults and children, we ask our families to please refrain from taking photo or video during class time, however we welcome pictures before or after class.

Music Together With Miri cannot guarantee availability at specific locations or times.
