Ages 1 ½ to 3 years
CAPTURE AND CELEBRATE THIS WONDROUS TIME OF CONNECTION AND DISCOVERY
Our Time encourages toddlers to uncover an engaging musical world while building confidence, self-control, and communications skills. Singing, imitating sounds, rhyming, and object identification foster language skills. Creative movement to music develops a sense of balance, timing, and spatial awareness. Listening and turn-taking encourage blossoming social skills. Our Time prepares the emotional foundations of school readiness with the latest research on music and early childhood development. Our Time is a unique opportunity for parent and child to interact and learn together in an unhurried and joyful manner.
FALL 2014 Curriculum:
Milk & Cookies: Make everyday home activities and chores easier and more fun with music! Cook and
sing to “The Muffin Man”; dust and clean to the original song “In My House”; get ready
to wash clothes to the delightful poem “Washing Machine”. Wiggling like jelly, going
grocery shopping and making tea are all represented in familiar as well as new songs.
Move, play, and sing together in developmentally appropriate activities created just
for this age. Capture the familiar and new moments of the day and learn how music
can impact your toddler.
Home Materials: Two Books—At My House and Cookies, Two Home CDs, Stir Xylophone instrument, and a Home Activity Book—all arriving in a durable lunch bag.
SPRING 2015 Curriculum:
Fiddle Dee Dee: We'll meet many animal characters in our books, activities, and songs—each specifically
chosen for a toddler's emerging interests and physical skills. With silly, bumpy lap
bounces we'll help toddlers develop rhythm while further developing their ever-emerging
language skills. With a special stringed instrument emphasis in the music from class,
parents can bring home the violin, cello, and orchestra sounds to help their toddlers
stay happy and engaged learners at home, too.
Home Materials: Double CD featuring songs from class; two interactive storybooks—This Little Piggy Played the Fiddle and Animal Serenade to develop early literacy skills; Home Activity Book, and a pair of Fiddlestick instruments.
