Children ages 0-5

Nurture your child’s inner musician with Music Together®, an internationally renowned early childhood music and movement program for children ages 0-5 and the grown-ups who love them. During this 10-week session of weekly classes, we will sing, dance, chant and play instruments in an informal setting with this research-based curriculum. Children learn through play with a wide variety of music that will enrich their musical environment and guide them towards a lifetime of music-making enjoyment. They (and you!) will have so much fun with the multi-cultural music collections, while obtaining all the learning and developmental benefits music offers – especially during the early childhood years, when children are most impressionable.

Tuition is $165 for first child and $65 for each additional sibling (infant siblings under 9 months are free). This includes ten 45-minute weekly caregiver and child classes filled with music, bonding, and pure fun, along with tips on how to enhance your child’s music development. Each family also receives two professionally recorded CDs, music downloads, access to the Family Music Zone online portal and a beautifully illustrated songbook.

Driver’s Education @ Chanhassen High School
Feb 7 @ 3:15 pm – 6:15 pm

Community Education, in collaboration with Safeway Driving School, offers students ages 14½ and older the opportunity to participate in classroom instruction to prepare them for the MN permit test. All instructors are licensed by the MN Department of Public Safety.

Behind-the-wheel instruction must be set up with Safeway Driving School, 651.351.9150, www.safewaydrivingschool.com. The cost is $150 and is payable to Safeway at the lessons..

Classroom instruction prepares the student to take the Minnesota permit test and begin the responsibility of driving. The 30 hours of classroom is structured into 10 independent lessons. Students must be on time for all classes. Riding the district activity bus may not ensure timely arrival so alternative arrangements should be made. If a student misses a lesson, they can make up that exact lesson number at the next session or at one of Safeway’s other locations. After class is completed, students that are 15 years old are eligible to take their permit test at any Minnesota exam center. Students can take the class at age 14½ but cannot take their permit test until age 15.

Parent involvement is required to produce safe, responsible teen drivers. It is critical that parents plan to practice regularly with their new student drivers. Safeway offers detailed information on its web site to assist parents with understanding Minnesota laws and requirements for student drivers. Safeway strongly encourages parents to review its parent information and watch the online Parent Class videos at www.safewaydrivingschool.com.

Behind-the-wheel instruction must be directly set up with Safeway Driving School, 651.351.9150,www.safewaydrivingschool.com. The cost is $150 and is payable to Safeway at the lessons. Includes six hours of driving in three, two-hour private lessons. All driving is done in a real car on actual city streets, highways and freeways with a responsible, licensed Safeway instructor. Safeway recommends students take their first lesson 6-8 weeks after receiving their permit. The lessons should be a minimum of 30 days apart to allow for practice driving. The lessons can be completed up to one year after completing classroom. Scheduling is offered online for 24/7 convenience. All of Safeway’s cars are white with identical graphics, so parents and students are confident that it is a Safeway car picking up the student for a lesson. Students can get picked up for their behind-the-wheel lesson from home, school or work.
