        Kindermusik Village provides families a warm introduction to music, and encourages participation in a music-making
        community. Not only is this class an incredible bonding experience for you and your child, but it’s also a great way to meet
        other parents and find future playmates for your little one! Babies growth and development are stimulated as they experi-
        ence an abundance of singing, creative movement, dancing, vocal play, and object and instrument exploration. Scarves,
        balls, egg shakers, and drums are just some of the props and instruments Baby will enjoy exploring.
        Zoom BuGGY How many ways can Baby and Parent zoom in Village? Hop in the Zoom Buggy! and find out! Through a va-
        riety of songs, chants, and instrumental selections you and Baby will experience the rumbling of a baby buggy, the squeaky
        stroller, the bumpa bumpa bumpa of the wagon, the train chugging up the track and much more. Home materials include a
        CD, book, art banners, home journal with words and music to the songs, and a vinyl carry bag. ($32 home kit included).
        dReAm PiLLow Baby is the star in Dream Pillow, with each activity carefully planned to stimulate his developing brain,
        thereby promoting physical, social, cognitive, emotional, and language development. But it is the parent who is watching
        and guiding this little star on the rise, and Dream Pillow, like all of the Village units, is written with the parent very much in
        mind. Home materials include a CD, board book, art banners, home journal with words and music to the songs, and a vinyl
        carry bag. ($32 home kit included).

  pounds. I am authorizing such transportation for my child. I realize that such a program has certain risks involved and that
  every effort will be made to safeguard the participants and their equipment. However, no amount of precaution taken by staff
  can ensure the safety of participants unless all of the participants obey the rules. Participants are expected to understand the
  rules as well as their responsibilities to others participating in this program. If a child is disruptive, causes discipline problems,
  or is found in violation of any safety rules established by the driver, s/he may be suspended or terminated from the Recreation
  Department Fee Class Transportation Program. I also understand that although every effort will be made to deliver students
  "on time", students may from time to time arrive late for class.

  I have read and understand and hereby agree to abide by the rules and terms of this contract.
