  • We require two class time choices, as classes which do not reach minimum registrants may be cancelled or condensed with another class on the same day in an adjacent time slot. If you can not make a 2nd class time, please feel free to email us, and we will let you know whether or not the first class time of your choice will be running.

  • Siblings under 5 months can come for free when attending with older registered sibling.

Semester rates include a $25 admin. fee.

Little Folkies Cancellation Policy

  • Although we do not offer refunds, we are happy to offer credit to be used towards future semesters or other Little Folkies offerings. Credited monies must be used within 6 months of cancellation. Certain class times offered may be cancelled due to under-enrollment. In this case, you will be transferred to your 2nd class choice.

  • 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.

In winter 2019, we will be transitioning away from offering unlimited drop-ins. Exceptions apply to new students who want to try out a class before committing to the whole semester, as well as our flexi-pass holders. Please email us at contact@littlefolkies.com to schedule your drop-in!

How do I register for the full semester?
   
We offer Little Folkies in Mill Valley, Noe Valley, and Berkeley. You can find our class schedule for all of our locations here. Once you find the best location and time for you, click on the class of your choice and follow the prompts to register. Registration is confirmed upon receipt of payment.
 
We missed a class, can we make up on another day?
 
Of course! In fact, enrolled students get three make-ups each session. Please email contact@littlefolkies.com whenever you need to schedule a make-up class throughout your semester! It’s not possible to transfer make-ups to another semester (unless you have a cancelled class credit), or to siblings or friends.

I am trying to register and it's asking me for a second 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 second week of the session, we'll transfer you to your second class choice.
 
Can I take pictures of my child in class?
  
Yes, we just ask that you avoid filming and photographing other students due to privacy and copyright reasons, and that you keep your cell phone silent and mostly put away for the duration of class. We aim to create a special environment that encourages our little ones and parents to enjoy engaging one-on-one time with one another, and with others in the class.
 
Can I film my child in class?
   
Yes, we have changed our policy and you can discretely take one or two quick videos. Please send us the videos so we can post on our social media or tag us in any posts!
  
Can I bring the newborn along with my older child?

Tag-along babies under five months at the beginning of semester can come for free when attending with an 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 class?
     
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?
  
We are happy to give you credit for a future Little Folkies semester, but we do not offer refunds. Credited monies must be used within 6 months of cancellation, but can be extended under special circumstances. Certain class times offered may be cancelled due to under-enrollment. In this case, you will be transferred to your second choice class.
   
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.
 
Can I purchase the music we sing in class?
  
Current semester CDs, books, and download codes are available to purchase from teachers in class and on our website. To download music only, albums are available for purchase on Bandcamp.
 
Can I feed my baby in class?
 
Bottle or breastfeeding is fine of course but please keep the cheerios and squeeze packs for outside the classroom. :)
