In Wiggle & Grow, we celebrate and embrace your active toddler while introducing your family to an exciting musical world filled with singing, rhyming, literature, instrument exploration and creative movement. Enjoy this wonderful time together and watch your toddler strengthen his confidence, self-control, gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking and communication skills. Continue the learning and fun at home (or wherever you go) by enjoying the Kindermusik@Home activities, e-books, and music from class — all delivered right to your inbox!
WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE IN CLASS:
A WARM WELCOME You’ll meet other caregivers just like you who value music, learning and bonding. Life-long friendships frequently begin here.
TOGETHER TIME Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing you to make the most of the fleeting toddler years and giving you the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
FOCUSED LISTENING Focused listening activities let your child practice three big toddler concepts: stop, listen and imitate.
INSTRUMENT EXPLORATION Your child will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead her to discover her potential for melodic ensemble playing. Your toddler will also develop rhythm, strengthen fine motor skills, and improve hand-eye coordination.
STORIES AND EARLY LITERACY Listening to stories enhances language and speech development, fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help your child learn to read a book also help her learn to read music.
MOVEMENT ACTIVITIES Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
EXTENDED ATTENTION SPANS It won’t happen the first day, but gradually you’ll notice the difference as your toddler becomes more aware of others and the world around her. She’ll sit a little longer for story time and she’ll use her own words to offer ideas for class activities.
EXPERT ADVICE Your Kindermusik Educator explains “what-to-watch-for” every step of the way, and how each musical activity enhances your child’s complete development.
QUALITY HOME MATERIALS With the Kindermusik@home materials, the learning and fun continues at home with your child’s best teacher - you! Every 5 weeks you’ll receive a new downloadable mp3 album, e-book, and creative home activities.
