Well, I’ve spent four of the last five evenings working on the Fall Schedule. I’ve learned how to coordinate Mollyguard and Paypal with my website so that you, my families, can register online, even without immediate payment, to put your child’s name on the class roll.
Mollyguard and Paypal are both safe, secure online payment methods and completely free! You don’t have to have an account with Paypal to use the service, and the nice thing about Mollyguard is that you can register online and send payment via the U.S. Postal Service, if you prefer. Or, you can save a stamp, and just click to pay online, using your credit card with Paypal.com.
Classes are limited in size and Mollyguard has that limit firmly in place. When the class fills, it fills, and Mollyguard no longer accepts registrations.
When looking for just the right class for your family and comparing one studio to another, be sure to check out the number of weeks per semester. Some Kindermusik offerings are 5, 10, 12, or 15 weeks long. All of our classes are clearly marked either 8, 10 or 15 weeks.
And be sure to tell your friends about the fall schedule. For each paid referral, Masterworks Studio gives a $10 tuition credit for the next semester’s classes! And don’t forget that siblings also receive discounted tuition as well.
Village – ages 0 – 18 months
Come join our fun this fall as we enjoy “Zoom Buggy!” and “Dream Pillow” in the Village classes.
How many ways can Baby and Parent zoom in Village? Hop in the Zoom Buggy! and find out! Through a variety of songs, chants, and instrumental selections you and Baby will experience the rumbling of a baby buggy, the squeaky stroller, the bumpa bumpa bumpa of the wagon, the train chugging up the track and much more.
Baby is the star in Dream Pillow, with each activity carefully planned to stimulate his developing brain, thereby promoting physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and language development. But it is the parent who is watching and guiding this little star on the rise, and Dream Pillow, like all of the Village units, is written with the parent very much in mind.
Our Time (18 months – 3 years)
For our slightly older crowd, (ages 18 months – 3 years), Our Time’s Class “Milk and Cookies” is back!
Imagine the aroma of baking cookies, the coziness of the family kitchen, the chatter among sisters, brothers, grandmas, granddads, mom and dad, and the anticipation and excitement of having friends come to visit. These moments at home are times to be shared and treasured. These special moments are captured in Milk & Cookies. As in the other units of Our Time, the central focus of Milk & Cookies is the toddler’s need for security balanced with his need for independence. Milk & Cookies songs and activities promote interaction between parent and child where the parent gently guides their child’s learning and the process of scaffolding takes place. Capturing the security, excitement and familiarity of “at home” moments is the ideal theme for empowering the parent to act as teacher through scaffolding. What better way for parents to lead their child than with familiar, everyday home activities such cooking in the kitchen, dusting and washing clothes?
Family Time – ages 0 – 7
Sing. Musical instrument and prop-play throughout the semester builds strong finger muscles, and develops a sense of rhythm. Plus, hoops, scarves, and tumble-around activities develop coordination.

Move. With growing coordination and interest in their peers, younger children will watch the older ones and learn how to skip and gallop.
Listen. Throughout the class, the children are listening to instruments, each other, and to specially designed opportunities to focus in on developing critical listening skills.
Story Time. When children listen to a story in a group, they watch the reactions of each other, helping to stimulate curiosity, expand knowledge, and to develop a life-long love of reading.
Family Jam. Everyone grabs an instrument and plays along with the music – helping children experiment with a with a variety of instruments and sounds.
In this one-room schoolhouse approach to learning, your children gets exposure to the emotional, and social skills they’ll need to for starting school, or on the playground. We will explore all the different times of Our Kind of Day: playtime, mealtime, clean-up time, bath time, and, of course, night time. Come join us as we enjoy Family Time!
