Easiest Reenrollment Ever!

The Story:  An Old Complicated, Stressful System

Usually at this point in the semester we start putting up signup sheets and sending out emails reminding you to reenroll.  There are special weeks for currently enrolled families and new families and families with siblings and families changing classes, and it is all very complicated.  We always have a huge number of waiting lists for classes (12 this semester), so people scramble to call the day we open enrollment to get into the class they want or to save their spot, and it’s more than a little stressful.  Oddly, with all the stress and scramble and complicated procedures the end result is this:  Between 70 and 80% of our current families reenroll, and most of those families reenroll for the exact same class day and time.

Okay, so that seems a little silly to make you go through a rather stressful, complicated process to get almost exactly where we started.  So, we thought we’d simplify things a little for everyone.

A Simple Solution:  Your Space is Saved Till You Tell Us You Don’t Want It

Since 7 or 8 out of 10 of you want to reenroll, we’re just going to reenroll everyone. And then the 2 or 3 of you who don’t want to reenroll can just tell us, and we’ll open those spots up to new families.

Starting Oct. 31 (Halloween) you can bring in your $65 deposit (per child) to reserve your spot for Spring. No need to sign anything.  You’re already reenrolled in your current class day/time/agegroup for Spring.  If you’re signed up for automatic payments online, we will run your credit card for the charges on Nov.  14. (Want to be set up for automatic payments?  Just tell us.  We’ll be happy to help.)

Enrollment will Open to the Public and Become Available Online November 16.


We need to move up to the next agegroup.  What do we do? No problem!  We actually have already been making a list of kids who need to move up.  We’ll be talking to you during these next two weeks to find the best fit for you for Spring in terms of day and time.  In many cases we should be able to get you into a class on the exact same day just at a different time.  Piece of cake.

We need to switch days.  Can we still do that? Absolutely.  We will do our best to help you find another day that fits your schedule for spring.  Just let us know.  To ensure we get your request, call 913.322.2151 or email us at kindermusikwithjoy@gmail.com

We aren’t able to continue for Spring.  What should we do? While we are sad you won’t be able to continue classes with us for Spring, we completely understand that sometimes life intervenes.  We request that you notify us before November 14 via phone at 913.322.2151 or via email at kindermusikwithjoy@gmail.com. That’s all you have to do.  If we haven’t heard from you by then, we’ll assume you plan to continue, and you will be charged the non-refundable $65 deposit for Spring.

Spring Schedule:   January 17 – May 7
(No classes March 12-16 for Spring Break.)

Doing things this way will also allows us to release our Spring Schedule slightly early.  As you’ll notice when you follow the link, there will only be a few changes.  In order to accommodate the large number of toddlers we have moving up, we are adding two new Our Time classes (ages 18 months – 3 years) :  Tuesdays at 10:15 am and Fridays at 9:15 am, and we are moving the Friday 9:15 am Village class (ages 0-18 months) to Wednesdays at 11:15 am.
