For this unique moment in time, most of our Kindermusik programs are being offered ONLINE through the ZOOM app… so easy for you to connect with other families with our little ones through music, even while staying home!
Our families are LOVING this interactive time with their children, along with Ms. Debbie and the other grown ups. Our 2 & 3 year olds are amazed to see Ms Debbie on the screen and interact, like a group FaceTime. Each will hear Ms. Debbie and their friends SING hello to them with their name and choice of movement. They will hear Ms. Debbie’s voice engaging them in creative musical play along with mom’s (or dad’s) voice and interactions, enjoying these few guided moments of engaging joyful play just right for their growing development in so many areas. On screen, your child will enjoy seeing the faces of their friends engaging as well, and hearing Ms Debbie specifically call them out for ideas and feedback on what they are doing.
Before class each week, we’ll send an email with a list of things to gather as instruments and props for our active playtime together. Families gather whatever “instruments” they can find at home to play along, gain some delightful activities and dances to keep our young learners happy and moving. We don’t expect anything and this won’t be recorded. You don’t have to clean your house or wear make-up. In Pajamas, no problem. Pants are optional, underwear are not. We are all in this together, and we support each other without judgement.
With the music and online resources, you will have plenty of creative ideas to infuse your daily routines with music and meet the needs of your children, physically, mentally and emotionally… together… through music connections.
This program is right for you and your child if:
Your child is still an active mover, but also ready for a bit more structure in a group learning situation. With a favorite adult as a secure home base, play partner, and learning guide, these 2 & early 3 year olds are getting “school-ready” while exploring, engaging, developing, and connecting.
Enrollment in a Nutshell
Enrollment is just $65 a month for a session subscription, and includes 34 lessons from end of Aug through mid- May. Our curriculum includes a variety of units and experiences, each of which includes music, books, instruments & more. In January, you will love our unique 4 week unit, with digital music, story and online activities.
Enroll at any time, we’ll prorate the tuition. Continued enrollment is easy through the new units, and even as your child moves along to the next age group, when they are ready for a bit more independence.
As your child begins to gain more self-control of their body and focus with their mind, they become eager learners. It is utterly amazing to see how many new words they gain each day, as well as the new skills they seem to develop over night. As a parent, you will appreciate a chance to see how your child learns best, as we introduce new activities and concepts through multi-sensory ways, and along with other early learners in the same age and stage.
You and your emerging learner are set to discover the fascinating world around them through music, both in our structured class environment full of opportunities to get engaged and socialize, AND through continued interactions with the family and materials throughout the week.
As their inner musician blossoms, gaining understanding of concepts and developing steady beat, pitch matching, and other musical skills, so does the whole child. The ongoing process of music, over time, helps build their confidence as a capable person, improve their ability to explore and control the many ways their bodies can move, and expand their language and communication skills. Class time lets them practice and master social skills like taking turns and gently interacting with our friends.
Here in Lakeland, FL, we are offering this “mommy and me” style program once a week, although other loving adults such as dad or grandparents may be the little one’s partner in class.
Through our private Facebook GROUP, specifically created for OUR enrolled local Kindermusik families , the PARENTS are also able to connect in a more interactive way. This is our happy online space where we can share our musical journey together, sharing pictures and stories from class, and home.
Together, we become a cozy support system for each other as we face the challenges and delights of this quickly developing stage of life.
This Kindermusik Level 2 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.
Music and More to Infuse into your days together at home
Included in your tuition is online access to each new unit of Kindermusik@Home which includes the Kindermusik songs and recordings we use in class, the e-book, videos and introductions to addtional activities, and printable lyrics – as well as recipes, learning games, crafts, and more in a green-friendly digital format. With each new unit, families receive a treasure trove of developmentally appropriate activities that will give children a lifelong love of music and a strong early foundation for learning. And with each activity, parents learn how and why that activity enhances a child’s learning and development.
For each unit presented, families can choose INSTEAD of digital access, to receive a CD of quality recordings, a children’s book to read with their child, and a child safe instrument or prop for musical play.
You can choose both the PHYSICAL book, CD and instrument, as well as have access to the DIGITAL Kindermusik@Home set with music, story and so much more online.
