Spring Registrations - On Sale March 1
We have been closely monitoring health and safety recommendations and gathering restrictions from the Alberta Government and Alberta Health Services. We will continue to meet or exceed health and safety recommendations.
We know that many of you look forward to the outing of attending classes with other families at the Winspear Centre, and, of course, we love teaching classes in person, too! Our hope is that we will be able to safely gather for our Spring Semester this coming April. If that is not possible, we are eager to continue singing, moving, and playing instruments together over Zoom.
Are masks mandatory?
Yes, for adults, but not for babies. We encourage toddlers over the age of 2 to wear a mask during class.
What procedures are in place to keep us safe during class?
Sanitizer will be placed in all entrances, classrooms, and washroom facilities. Physically distanced café tables will be used to store personal belongings during class. Separate musical supplies for each family will be provided and sanitized between classes. High touch surfaces will be disinfected regularly between classes.
What are the responsibilities of the parents and guardians?
All participants and staff must complete a wellness check before arriving for class and stay home if you feel unwell.
What happens if I’m not feeling well?
If you feel unwell and need to stay at home, you can join the class by Zoom. A link will be provided for families to join, along with a list of household items to use during class.
Can I do a make-up class if we need to miss a class?
Families are not able to do a make-up class in person but can join a class over Zoom to make up for any missed classes.
Can I bring relatives to join the class?
Only one adult may join the class for each child enrolled. This allows us to follow physical distancing guidelines in our classroom.
What happens if there is a COVID-19 case in our class?
Our staff will work with Alberta Health Services to provide information for contact tracing.
What if you have to shut down due to an outbreak or increase in cases?
We will offer classes online if we are not able to run the class in person. If a change in program delivery method occurs, our staff will notify participants by phone and email.
What video conferencing platform will you use for our online program?
Our interactive and participatory classes will take place live over Zoom. You will receive a meeting id and password for your class prior to your first session.
How should I be prepared at home to participate?
Downloading the Zoom app and familiarizing yourself with the mute button, camera on, and chat functions are recommended. You’ll also want to ensure you have the following:
- Comfortable clothes to wear while we sing, move, and play
- A fairly open space for you and your baby to move around
- A bell, or shaker (bear bell, holiday decoration, a homemade shaker works too!)
- A scarf, pillowcase, or small blanket
- Tupperware container, or hand drum
