Music, Movement and Play

For children ages 2-3 (Child must be 2 years old by first class), a six week class with a maximum enrollment of 6 children per class. Children are not required to be potty trained and there is no recital performance. Children wear comfortable loose fitting play clothing (no jeans please) and have bare feet (absolutely no socks or tights allowed on floor for safety reasons). Children will warm-up, group games, parachute activities, mat activities, bean bag activities, Finger plays, musical instruments, songs, props, a cool down, and much more. Children will learn: Signing, dancing, movement games, and activities that promote balance, motor control and coordination. These activities will provide powerful tools that impact your child’s physical, social, emotional and intellectual development too. The class will encourage self-esteem and cooperation with non-competitive experiences. They’ll also have an opportunity to learn social skills as they have fun interacting with peers and meeting new friends. Parents are encouraged to allow their child to enter the class room and experience the class without them. This will aid in parent/child separation situations and allow the child to develop social skills and interact with peers. (we do understand that some parents may need to be present with the initial “drop off”, but are encouraged to remove themselves from the class as quickly as they are able to.) The last class of the session will be an observation class, where parents, friends, and family may observe the class.
