My advice would be to talk with your teacher about your absence. If you know in advance that you will be out, then ask your teacher about attending a different day and time. If you are out because unexpectedly, you have a couple of options.
1. look at the schedule online and see what is available.
2. check the blog and make sure there isn't an announcement about a class being cancelled. This happens occasionally when a teacher has a conference to attend or is ill. We typically try and cover classes if a teacher is out, but sometimes that isn't possible.
3. call or email about availability of another class.
You make up the class anytime during the semester, it doesn't have to be within that week. This works fine for Village, Our Time, and Imagine That! classes, but not so well for the older classes. For children in Young Child there aren't as many options. Your teacher will be happy to get you the materials you missed at the next class.
As a side note, classes will not meet on Labor Day. Monday classes will make up this class the week of Thanksgiving. Also, no classes will meet the week of October 5 - 9. This is fall break for the city & county schools.

3. the new elevator located on the 1st floor is very nice, but I would ask you to enter 1st floor quietly.
Be sure to look at the bulletin board outside the Kindermusik room. It is a glimpse into the history of the 20 years of Kindermusik at Berry College.
My next post will answer the question - "Can I make-up a class?"

Do you have a great experience that you want everyone to know about? Do you find yourself telling friends, and even strangers about your vacation or a sale at your favorite store? My family loves the National Parks. I can talk for hours about the wonders of the parks. My youngest daughter is involved in a local swim club. I am constantly telling other moms about Three Rivers Swim Club. I tell them why I am supportive of the sport of swimming: exercise, friends, competition, discipline, and confidence builder.
“The past five or six years have been a joy for us. Often we spend money on our children/grandchildren for games, toys and other activities and don’t see fruit from our investment. I’m thankful all the money we’ve spent on Kindermusik at
“Families have so many demands on their time. I say “no” to many outside activities, but I have always found time in our family’s schedule for Kindermusik. It is an essential part of my children’s education." Susan, mom to 7.
