VILLAGE CREATES AN EXPERIENCE OF LEARNING AND BONDING FOR YOU AND YOUR BABY
Kindermusik Village provides a unique blend of multi-level activities that include creative movement, vocal play, object and instrument exploration, and a colorful literature component. Baby's growth and development are stimulated and all senses engaged.
Kindermusik Village incorporates the most current research on early childhood development and provides families a special place for learning and connecting with other parents and babies through music and movement. This curriculum is designed for lap babies, crawlers, and walkers.
FALL 2013 Curriculums:
DO-SI-DO: Pick up your baby and dance. Dance the Charleston, the Tango, and the Cha-Cha and learn why dancing with your baby helps develop vital learning skills. In this class we will play a variety of baby appropriate instruments and dance with fun props.
Home Materials: CD with songs from class, an instrument—Kindermusik eggshaker and scarf, a picture board book—Do-Si-Do—with lilting move-to-it rhyming text, and a set of Art Banners that strengthens vision and promotes early literacy.
FEATHERS: The musical poems of Woody Guthrie, bird songs, and the naturally occurring sounds
in nature help babies develop an early appreciation—and accelerated aptitude—for language,
movement, and music in this class.
Home Materials: CD with over 25 specially-selected recordings from class, Kindermusik chimeball, a colorful picture book of birds—Feathers, and a set of Art Banners that strengthens vision and promotes early literacy.
