WHAT YOU’LL EXPERIENCE IN MY KINDERMUSIK Baby & young toddler CLASSES
Language Development – Your child is on the edge of a verbal explosion, and Kindermusik gives her lots of opportunities to practice and develop those budding language skills. Singing and vocal play along with Story Time, chants, and finger plays all help stimulate language development in a fun and pressure-free way.
Vocal Development – For babies and young toddlers, learning to use their voices starts with imitating sounds, playing with the many sounds our voices can make, and being immersed in all sorts of musical sounds. Within the next year of life, you will start to see your child’s voice really emerge with new speech, mimicking melody, and perhaps even the singing of short songs, and chanting of simple rhymes – all with you as a model and inspiration.
Cognitive Development – Little minds present a big window of opportunity, but a window that’s actually only open for so long. Simple musical play activities increase your child’s brain development by locating sounds though instrument and object play and feeling a steady beat. You’ll be able to enhance your child’s growing comprehension and cognitive skills through happy classroom routines like coming to get instruments and putting them away, musical activities that invite clapping and tapping to music, and themes that engage the toddler’s delightful sense of curiosity and imagination.
Gross Motor Skills – One thing will naturally lead to the next as you expand your baby’s movement repertoire through activities that support standing independently, and later learning to walk, march, and dance. Young toddlers on the go love all their Kindermusik classes – we’re never still for very long! From holding and shaking instruments to running and jumping to stopping and going, you will enjoy being part of helping your child’s skills blossom through a wide variety of creative movement.
Fine Motor Skills – At a time when your child is becoming more and more independent, a little practice with smaller-sized instruments, finger plays, and turning pages in a book means that the hand muscles learn to cooperate more and more with the brain - a helpful skill to avoid frustration.
Social Emotional Development – There’s no doubt that your child is becoming their own little person, but they still need you as their anchor and security. We ensure your child’s healthy social and emotional development through predictable routines and special rituals, being around other children, practice with sharing, and best of all, play time with you.
Musical Development – Babies and young toddlers are delighted by music, and there’s no better time than in these early years to inspire what will become a lifelong love for music. From exploring instruments, to listening to sounds, to moving to music and to singing and dancing together, your little one will be primed and ready to benefit from an early introduction to music, and you’ll love how Kindermusik inspires your daily routines and strengthens the bond you share.
