From 1 - 4 Years
Experience a wonderful world of music, stories, and activities created to inspire a lifetime of learning.
In Sing & Sensory Play, parents and children will play, learn, sing, sign, dance, create, and share in the fun of making music together through each research-proven sensory and giggle-approved activity.
With themed activities and a focus on feeling the beat of the music we will Inspire your child's love of learning in our delightfully engaging Sing & Sensory Play sessions. Best of all, every one of our activities—the music, puppets, parachutes, bubbles, scarf play, movement activities, instrument playing and dancing nurture every child's natural curiosity, eventually drawing each child toward learning new words, new concepts, and new big ideas.
Each week there is excitement as we learn to use our body like clapping our hands, wriggling our fingers, stamping our feet and nodding our head. We might walk through a forest and meet a bear or maybe a monkey, We learn about sounds. Maybe march or tippy toes or some jumping. Bubbles are a must. At the end of the session we enjoy some gentle quiet time so the children learn to self regulate and you have a calm little one after class.
Each class lasts about 45 minutes. The hall is booked for 1 hour per class which gives much needed social time too.
What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:
Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development -- Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.
Vocal play -- Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. Vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.
Exploration Time -- Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
Story time and early literacy -- Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them 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.
Together Time -- In the essence of quality time, allowing parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
Expert advice -- Your teacher explains how the musically based activities enhance a toddler’s complete development.
