Indoor Classes in the Community Centres

Thank you for a great term safely distanced indoors!

 

Outdoor Classes in Local Parks 

Thank you for a great year outside!

After an amazing year learning outdoors, we have decided, we love this!  

Teacher Monica and Jump Into Music will continue to offer OUTDOOR classes in the Fall. 

 

 

Wondering what we have been doing to stay safe this past year?  Here are the safety guidelines we have been following in class since Sept 2020. 

Class Safety Guidelines

To help us Get Together in-person we will follow these Class Safety Guidelines:

What to bring from home:

Check out this YouTube Video describing everything you need and where to get it! 

  • maracas – homemade or any kind of shakers, one for each hand = 4
  • jam instruments for you and your child, we lead by example and the joy of copying can create incredible moments together.
  • Two peek-a-boo scarves – see through ones are the best!  Different patterns are wonderful so we can point out the interesting shapes and colours on each person’s scarf.  Every moment is a learning opportunity. Square scarves are preferred but bring whatever you have.
  • Yoga mats and/or a blanket to sit on – one blanket per family so we can all stay compact in our bubbles.  A designated spot will be marked for each family before class. 

Redirection:

  • If children wander off, quickly redirect them back to your blanket. Scoop them up in your arms, dance on your blanket or walk away from the circle at any time. Please follow your child if they leave your blanket and sing and dance with them from a distance if needed. We will carry on without notice. You can rejoin the circle anytime.

Social Distance Measures:

  • We will keep a safe 6 foot distance between each family.
  • Wearing a mask is mandatory as per provincial order for adult participants.  Note: The teacher will not be wearing a visor while teaching in order to connect with the children. They will maintain a safe distance away from all participants throughout the class. Please resist the urge to come into each other’s space at the start of the class. Some families may be in bubbles together.  If so we will communicate this at the start of class.
  • Please do not huddle around the teacher or visit within the 6 foot distance at the start or end of the class.

Best practices for a safe class experience:Do not walk into the 6 foot perimeter of another family.

  • Masks worn for all adults.
  • Do not let children interact with other children without the express permission of the other family. At the start of class we will communicate regarding those present who have established shared boundaries.
  • Do not share your instruments with other participants.
  • Keep your area contained. Do not leave items lying around that other participant children may try to pick up (phones, water bottles, toys etc)

Don’t be shy about singing and dancing.  Let’s share our joy through music – we’re in this together! : )
