designed for 1 1/2 to 3 year olds.
This Kindermusik program is a wonderful place for families to experience the social world of children and adults, while children learn to participate in structured group setting. Toddlers learn to balance their need to explore their world independently, and their continued need for the close bond and security of the parent or significant partner (close relative or friend) with whom they attend. All the while learning to love music through rhymes, songs, movement, and exploratory play.
- 2 CDs of high quality music featuring a variety of voices, instruments, and styles presenting songs and chants based on the unit theme.
- 2 Children’s literature books with interesting characters, story lines, and word plays
- Home Activity Book which includes the words & melodies of the songs, as well as ideas, cut out games, and optional resources to help bring the learning home.
- A Unique Instrument – designed and made durable, specifically for young children to enjoy.
- A cool carrying container, designed around the theme of the semester or one of the characters in the book. This becomes a wonderful tool for open-ended play throughout the semester, and beyond.
Fall Semester 2009
Wiggles & Giggles – Children love to move in so many ways. Bathtime themes such as bubbles, water, boats and more are introduced by the book “Pete & PJ” Children love the simple story and motive on each page, “Wishy Washy, Wishy Washy, Wishy Wasy, WHEEeeee!” The next book, “Watch Me!” introduces fun new ways that animals move. And the last part of the semester focuses on the love between family and friends. The instrument is a set of blue zig zag blocks, an excellent update on the classic sand blocks – lots of ways to make sounds!
Spring Semester 2010
Away We Go! – Hop on the train, get in the car, board the plane, ride a horse and Away We Go! This delightful unit focuses on transportation, a favorite topic for toddlers who are on the go, go, go! Sing and play along with favorite songs, such as “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad” and “Wheels on the Bus”. Explore fast and slow, smooth and bumpy, and high and low, and much, much more. Zoom, Zoom! The instrument is a set of two harmonicas especially designed for children to play easily. The cardboard case is designed in the shape of their soon to be favorite train, Shiney Dinah.

Milk and Cookies! – Yummy! Using a favorite snack as a class theme, we’ll give you songs and stories to bring more music into daily routines with your toddler—if it’s going to the store, baking cookies, or spending time together in the kitchen. Each activity was carefully created to help your toddler build confidence, self-control, and social skills. The instrument is a wooden stir-xylophone. The case is a vinyl, Velcro insulated lunch bag you’ll use long after this class is over.
