Early Childhood Program
Start Your Child on the Right Note!
Hoff Barthelson's 30-week Music & Movement Dalcroze Eurhythmics classes for young children are taught in a small group setting that is both nurturing and stimulating. Parent/child classes have a maximum enrollment of eight children. This enables the children, parents, and teacher in each class to forge a strong bond. Comfort is further achieved by the reassurance of familiar faces each week and predictable class procedures. A child's age as of September 1 is used for placement purposes for Guppies and Learning in the Lap. Other class placements are based on the child's birth year.

YOU WILL WANT TO KNOW...Observing Classes
Please note that Hoff-Barthelson does not allow trial classes. Trial classes would result in a constant rotation of new faces, and this interruption in routine would disrupt the class dynamic. Parents are welcome to arrange to observe a class.
In the parent/child classes we strongly feel each child needs the undivided attention of his/her adult; "one lap per child". Thus, when twins enroll, two adults (two laps) must accompany the children to each class. We cannot accommodate unenrolled siblings in our classes.
Make-Up Classes and Weather Closures
Should the school need to cancel a class for reasons such as teacher absence or inclement weather, we will schedule a make-up class at the end of the second semester. If a child is absent from class there is NO make-up class.
