AROUND THE STUDIO:
Last week of classes before Christmas
This week, December 15-20, is our last week of classes before Christmas. There will be no classes between December 21 and January 2. Fall semester will resume on Saturday January 3 and continue through to January 16. The following week will be our make-up week for any classes that may have been cancelled due to snowdays or teacher illness. Your teacher will inform you if your class will be in need of a make-up the week of January 17 to 23.
Spring semester begins January 30
There will be no classes between January 17 and 29, unless your class needs a make-up (see above). Winter-Spring semester will begin January 30, except for Family Time and Sign & Sing, which begin March 6.
Priority Registration Ends This Week!
If you have not yet registered for the upcoming semester, please do so this week as all available spaces will be opened up to our waiting list, mailing list and general public. Don’t miss out to sold outs! All registrations received before December 20th will receive a Karaoke Kindermusik CD to put under the tree!
Karaoke Kindermusik CDs are here!
If you pre-registered for Fall and Spring semesters OR if you have submitted your registration for Spring semester already, you will find a brand new Kindermusik CD, called “Pick a Song and Sing Along”, in your Family Folder in the studio waiting room (Cambridge) or handed to you by your teacher (Waterloo). Consider this our gift to your family for your continued support of the program. We hope you will have hours and hours of fun singing along to your favourite songs!
Accompany Those Songs with Instruments!
Looking for some last minute gifts or stocking stuffers? We have a few items left in our Cash&Carry Kindermusik Holiday Store at both studios. But, when they’re gone, they’re gone. Don’t forget that you’ll find lots of additional instruments, books, music and toys available at http://www.kindermusik.com/Shop/Shop.aspx. 10% of online sales will go directly to our local Joshua Walker Scholarship Fund for Children with Special Needs.
Cambridge Families: Check Your Family Folder
If you preregistered for Fall and Spring semesters, you will find a white form in your Family Folder. All you need to do is check one of two boxes on the form to let us know…
a) whether you wish to keep your child in their current class for the coming semester, or
b) that would would like to move them to a new class, and an indication of your top 3 choices for that day and time.
Most of you have already done this, but some of you have not. If you’re in the latter group, please do so this week, as we are holding your current space for you, and there may be a waiting list for your class. If your child needs to move to a new class or curriculum, and you wait until after December 20th to confirm your space, we can no longer guarantee you a space in the one of your top 3 choices. We try our very best to make this work for everyone and some spaces are in high demand, so your immediate attention to this matter is very important. Thank you for your cooperation.
Add a Bumper Sticker and Earn $5!
If you and your child(ren) love this program, help us tell the world! You may have received an email request from your Kindermusik teacher requesting that you add a virtual bumper sticker to your webpage, blog, Facebook page or any other social networking site you may subscribe to. To show our gratitude for your support, you will receive a $5 credit to your Kindermusik account for every placement of the bumper sticker you add. Just hit reply to this message with a link to the page you’ve added it to, and we’ll make sure your account is credited. There’s no limit to how many $5 credits you can receive! For instance, if you add it to your blog, your Facebook page, and your My Space page, you’ll have $15 to apply toward your next semester of Kindermusik! Several moms have already added a bumper sticker and received their credit! You can too. You’ll find a choice of three designs attached. Thanks again for your support and for helping us spread the word!

Re-register for Spring today!
With the struggling economy, we know that you, like us, are closely evaluating how you spend your money. Our faculty and staff at Kindermusik of Cambridge/KW strongly believe that if you’re going to spend that money on one activity in 2009, Kindermusik is the single best choice you can make for your child. It provides benefits to your child that will last a lifetime, and research has proven it. Read about the connection between Kindermusik and literacy.
Our goal is to make Kindermusik work for you and your family. Did you know for instance, that we offer flexible payment plans to suit every budget? In one, two or four installments, or if that doesn’t work for you right now, let us know as we are more than willing to come up with a plan that works for you and your family. Register online, by calling us at 519-622-5702, or drop in. We accept cash, cheques, Visa or MasterCard. Scholarships are available for children with special needs and assistance may be arranged for those requiring financial support. Talk to us today about how we can help. Don’t forget that all family registrations received by December 20th receive a Karaoke Kindermusik CD for under the tree!
Please check the Lost & Found
You’ll find it in the waiting room. Thanks!
