Little Folkies Frequently Asked Questions

There's no such thing as a stupid question! Here are some of the things you might be wondering about and more:

Can I do a demo class before signing up?

We occasionally offer special free demo classes at the beginning of a semester but if you're itching to sign up you can always do a drop-in before committing to the full session.

Do you pro-rate the classes if we sign up late?

Yup. Classes are automatically prorated by $20 every week on our website. 

What's a flexi-pass?

The Flexi pass gives you the flexibility of drop in to any class at a discounted drop-in rate. 10 classes for $230. Read more about the flexi-pass here.
The flexi pass does not expire and can be used during any semester.

Can we do a drop-in?

Drop-in classes are offered at all locations and on a first come first serve basis until the class is full, this means you can not sign up in advance to drop in on a class. Classes marked full on the schedule are not available for drop-ins. Drop-in classes are $25 per student, drop-in sibling is $23.
Teachers take cash, but we prefer card payments.
You can also buy a Little Folkies 10 class drop in Flexi Pass.

How do I register for the full semester?

If you are a new student, see our schedule to find the best class time and location for you. Click register next to the class, create an account and register for the class time of your choice. Returning students get $35 off! Just log in, and pick a class!
Once registration form is submitted it will redirect you to Paypal to make payment. Registration is confirmed upon payment received. To pay with a credit card, choose the 'Don't have a Paypal Account option' during checkout and it will allow you to pay with a credit card. Your spot in the class will be guaranteed upon receipt of your payment.

We missed a class, can we make up on another day?

Of course! In fact, enrolled students get unlimited make-ups.  It’s not possible to transfer make-ups to another semester (unless you have a cancelled class credit). You’re welcome to make-up missed classes within the current semester. We ask that you schedule your make-ups through our online make-up scheduler.

I am trying to register and it's asking me for a 2nd choice, what if I can only make one class time?

We do our very best to make sure everyone gets their first class choice but in the case that your first class choice does not receive adequate enrollment, you will receive a low enrollment notification the week before the semester starts. Usually we'll run a small class the first week, and if we do not get enough folks by the 2nd week, we'll transfer you to your 2nd class choice.

Can I take pictures of my child in class?

Yes, we just ask that you don't film due to privacy and copyright reasons, and that you keep your cell phone in your pocket (on silent) or outside the class room for the duration of class.

Can I film my child in class?

No, we ask that you don't film due to privacy and copyright reasons, plus it's very distracting to the little ones.

Can I bring the newborn along with my older child?

Tag-along babies under 5-months at the beginning of semester, come for free when attending with older registered sibling even if they turn six-months during the semester. Any child older than five months at the start of the semester must be a registered student.

My baby is only a few months old, can I sign them up for

Why Yes! Our smallest students are as young as 3 months old. Bring a blanket for your baby and hold them close while you sing and learn a wide repertoire of songs to share with your little one throughout their childhood.

Can I cancel my enrollment?

Yes we are happy to give you credit for a future Little Folkies semester, though we do not offer refunds. Credited monies must be used within 6 months of cancellation, but can be extended if need be.
Certain class times offered may be cancelled by due to under-enrollment. In this case, you will be transferred to your 2nd choice class.
If in the rare event a teacher is sick, a class may be cancelled and rescheduled for semester break.

What happens if a class gets cancelled one week?

In the rare occasion that class gets cancelled due to teacher illness or an emergency,  students can make up the class anytime during the semester, or transfer a one-class credit to the next semester if need be. No refunds will be offered for teacher sick days.

Is there a cd with the music?

Current semester CDs and book are available to purchase from teachers in class and downloads are available as well at

Can I feed my baby in class?

Bottle or breastfeeding is fine of course but keep the cheerios and squeezepacks for outside the class room. :)
