Kindermusik Policies

Register Early

Classes are filled on a first come, first served basis. Although you may join our classes at any time, please register early since class sizes are limited and many fill quickly. Registering early will also ensure that we will have your child’s materials for you at your first class. A minimum of four students is needed or the class will be cancelled.

Enrollment Confirmation

A registration form and payment of registration fee only must be received before enrollment can be confirmed. Every attempt will be made to place families according to their first choice for day/time slot. However, entering a second choice increases your chances for placement at a day/time which is of your choosing and convenient for you as well. If your first choice is unavailable upon receipt of your registration, you will automatically be placed in your second choice slot. If we cannot accommodate your request, we will place your family on a waiting list or offer a full refund. You will receive an email or phone confirmation once your registration has been received.

Choosing a Class

The age recommendations outlined for Kindermusik classes have been carefully constructed to best group children in an age and developmentally appropriate way. Therefore, it is important that your child be at least the minimum age by the start of the semester for the class in which you are enrolling. If you have concerns about your child’s success in a particular age range, we are happy to discuss your child’s needs and work with you to place your child in an appropriate class.

Fees: Registration and Tuition

The registration fee reserves a place for your child in the class of your choice and is non-refundable. It includes the cost of high quality home materials (with shipping and handling) from Kindermusik International, and all other documents/information delivered throughout the semester. This fee is paid when the registration form is submitted. Materials are intended to accompany the Kindermusik classroom experience.

The total cost includes the registration fee plus tuition. Balance is due prior to the first class. Enrollment in a Kindermusik class is for the full session.

Make-up Classes

Make-up classes are handled on an individual basis. Please contact Betsy at musicalpathways@charter.net for more information.

Non-enrolled Siblings

When the sibling is young enough to be content in a car carrier or stroller, they may attend class. Please discuss this with your teacher or contact us with questions or concerns.


Tuition refunds or credit vouchers may be given if there are extenuating circumstances requiring withdrawal from class. All refund requests will be considered on an individual basis. The registration fee and a $20 processing fee are non-refundable.

Free Visits

We would be happy to schedule a free visit in one of our classes. Please contact us for availability — space is limited.

Weather Cancellations

Tune in to the following for announcements:
Radio: WTDY 1670 AM, WMGN 98 FM, WZEE 104

  • If the Waunakee/Verona School district is having LATE START then the morning classes that begin prior to 9 a.m. will be canceled.
  • If the Waunakee/Verona School district calls EARLY RELEASE, then the EVENING classes will be canceled.
  • If the Waunakee/Verona School District cancels their evening sports activities, then the EVENING classes will be canceled.

Credits are given for cancellations due to teacher illness or absence when make-up class is not possible. As is common practice, cancellations due to weather or other circumstances beyond Musical Pathways’ control are not given credits. However, if you would like to visit an alternate class as a make-up, please call to 576-6688 schedule. We would be happy to have you.

Should classes be canceled we will send an announcement via Constant Contact email. The radio and television stations are constantly updating their cancellations as well, so be sure to look for Waunakee/Verona school postings. Evening activity cancellations are not always listed on TV, so please check your email for a notice of cancellation from Musical Pathways Foundation.

Cancellations for Teacher Illness/Absence

Cancellations due to teacher illness or absence will be made up at the end of the semester or scheduled during a regularly scheduled week-off during the semester. If a date is not rescheduled, a class credit may be recorded for use in a subsequent semester if an alternate make-up class is no possible.
