Parents often WANT the Kindermusik experience for their family, but are often unable to participate due to a variety of factors. For many families these days, both parents are working during the typical time that Kindermusik is scheduled (during the day on weekdays). The time with their children is precious, even more so because it is limited. One of the moms in my Family Time class has told me that even though the situation requires their children to be at a childcare or preschool facility, she still wants to have that special experience of being there when her child is participating in a new learning experience… Something unique that really makes their time together special. There is so much of what NEEDS to be done each day, it is hard to stop and take the time to focus on each child, to watch the joy of learning spark in their eyes.
“Kindermusik has been that special time for us, when I get to help my child learn something new. Then we get to use these ideas, songs and activities at home, and throughout the next month. And because much of it is unique, it is like a special secret that we share within our family, and it helps us grow closer. Kindermusik is something we ALL enjoy, even our baby.”
This is some of the many reasons Kindermusik International designed the Family Time program. It is designed for families with one or more children of a variety of ages (infants up to 7 years old). Because of requests from both working families, and families with multiple ages of children, my program in Lakeland, Florida, is offering it every 3rd Saturday of the month, at 10:30 am. for 5 months.
Families enroll for a full semester: 60 min. class each month for 5 months
A full semester comes with a full set of materials: music, books, instruments, games, and puppets
“Moving & Grooving”
- Tempo (fast and slow)
- Levels (high and low)
- Pathways (straight, curvy, zig zag, and much more)
- Weight (light or heavy)
- Energy (sharp or smooth)
As with all Kindermusik programs, it comes with a high quality set of materials, but the Family Time sets are overly full with WONDERFUL tools that encourage continued enjoyment and learning outside of the classroom. Each family only needs ONE kit, as it has:
- TWO CDs full of high quality music,
- TWO children’s literature books,
- Sing, Play & Grow! A Family Guide to Musical Fun,
- TWO instruments (monkey den-den drums),
- TWO puppets (featuring RASCAL the monkey),
- AND a game (A Jellybean Band Card Game that gets you moving!)
Come and enjoy the musical fun together with your children. It will build beautiful memories within you and your children, and you will be amazed at how musical your lives will become.
