At what age should I start my child?
We specialise in the young child: 3 months to 7 or 8 years. As soon as you are ready to attend a class, we can accommodate you.
Which class is just right for us?
Each class has an age recommendation. These are a guide for you and are designed this way to ensure that children are grouped in a developmentally appropriate program. Your child needs to be at least the minimum age for the chosen class by the start of a term and or semester. Please read the class information on the website to assist you or please speak to us.
Can we join a class at anytime during the term/semester?
Yes you can. Fees will be calculated on a pro-rata basis. This is also subject to the availability of space in the class.
It may not be advisable at the time to enrol in a Musiglocks or Musikeys class, as the children in these classes are very settled after the first semester or could be quite advanced. A new member to the class may feel lost in one of these classes, so it may be best to wait until the beginning of the next year.
How do I enrol?
- Complete the “Online Enrolment Form”, and you will be contacted to ensure availability.
- An invoice will be emailed to you for payment to be made. Payment details can be found at the bottom of the invoice.
- A $100 deposit is required to hold your place in a class, with the balance due prior to, or at the first class. If you wish to pay online or directly into the Musikids account, account details can be found at the bottom of the invoice, or by going to Fees
If I need to cancel our enrolment, can I get the deposit back?
If you have not attended a class you will receive your deposit less a $30 cancellation fee. If you have attended class and have taken your materials home we do not refund the deposit. The materials are yours to keep. In extreme circumstances, the term fee less $10 per class not attended can be refunded.
How do I know when my child is too sick to come to class?
What happens if we miss a class?
Please notify us that you will not be attending class via email/phone/SMS/Facebook. You are encouraged to attend a makeup lesson in a class that is not filled to capacity. This makeup lesson must be organised with us prior to you attending and within the term that you missed the class. You have up to 2 makeup classes at your disposal. If classes are missed were due to serious illness (hospitalisation) and/or leaving the area suddenly, $10 can be credited for those classes unattended only when advance notice is given. i.e. one week notice prior to/or after incident.
When do we arrive for class? If my child takes the class without me, do I stay nearby?
Please arrive 5 minutes prior to class commencing so that we begin on time. If your child is enrolled in a Musikids, Musiglocks or Musikeys class, it is advised that you stay on or nearby the premises. You could use this time to rest yourself! It is important that you are there for the last 10 – 15minutes of these classes for Sharing/Family Time.
What do we need to bring to class?
Please dress comfortably & be prepared to take shoes off for class. If your child is enrolled in a Musikids, Musiglocks or Musikeys class each child will be required to bring their Musikids bag, materials and any homework completed.
Please do not bring toys and snacks to class as they can be a distraction to class routine. Food and drinks are not to be consumed in the foyer or singing room (with the exception of breastfeeding or a water bottle).
Parents enrolled in the Musibubs or baby class are advised to bring a blanket for their lap babies.
Should we bring food & a drink to class just in case we get hungry?
Under NO circumstances is food to be consumed in the Musikids foyer or classroom. (With the exception of breastfeeding or water bottles).
Can I bring other family members or friends to watch us in class?
As these classes are stage appropriate, only the enrolled child and parent/caregiver are to attend. All children enrolled in their specific classes depend on continuity for the class to feel safe & secure. A continual upset to routine may disrupt the progress of the enrolled child.
If you would like another family member or friend to attend class, please call prior to your class to discuss. We encourage family participation; however, we need to maintain the best learning environment for our enrolled students, and sometimes-extra friends or family members in the class can be a distraction.

Not without prior permission from all participants in the class.
