For this unique moment in time, this Kindermusik programs for youngest is being creatively offered ONLINE through the ZOOM app… so easy for you to connect with other families with babies through music, even while staying home!
Our families are LOVING this interactive time with Ms. Debbie and the other moms. Most of our youngest babies will not engage with anything visual on a screen. We don’t really want them to. But they will hear the music and Ms. Debbie SING along as you fully engage your baby, enjoying these few guided moment of joyful play just right for their growing development in so many areas. The older babies may enjoy seeing their friends faces, and hearing Ms Debbie commenting on what they are doing at home.
Families gather props and “instruments” they can find at home to play along, learn some delightful dances to keep baby happy and moving, and connect with their friends doing the same in the gallery view.
With the music and online resources, you will have plenty of creative ideas to infuse your daily routines with music.
This program is right for you and your child if:
Your baby is a cuddler, a wiggler, a scooter, or a crawler, or even taking wobbly steps, basking in your attention, and absorbing an amazing foundation for learning through sensory experiences.
Enrollment in a Nutshell:
Enrollment is just $65 a month with a session subscription, and includes 12 lessons from March through May, with fresh new units each month, each of which includes access to an album of high quality music, and so much more as part of your Kindermusik Home Materials, see options below.
Enroll at any time, and stay enrolled easily, even as you move up to the next age group, and choose to continue virtually or perhaps join us outdoors on our deck once your baby is walking and ready for our Level 1 program for active explorers.
For many families, Kindermusik is a magical bonding time with their baby in their busy week they look forward to attending each week. Many even find more, as friendships blossom and they find they are part of a little community of people making the best of life for their family at each of these young ages and stages.
Kindermusik FOUNDATIONS is designed, by Kindermusik International, specifically to meet the needs of cuddlers, creepers, crawlers, and early toddlers, along with the loving adults who care for them.
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 time of tiny.
Perhaps your daily routines need some musical “spice”… new songs to sing, new ways to interact with your baby, and some connection with other families, to more fully enjoy this wonderful time of tiny. That’s what I found when I first discovered Kindermusik back in 1996, when my little man was so young. It has been such GOOD “spice” in my life that I became addicted to it, and have been dedicated to offering this opportunity to families as a teacher since 1998.
Building Your Baby’s Library of Sounds
With each unit, you will love having access to a new album of high quality music, a delightful story book, creative ideas for musical interactions with your baby along with all the developmental benefits it has for your baby.
Download the Kindermusik APP on your phone, or any mobile device, and you’ll already have a good variety of music. With each new Kindermusik unit, a new album will be unlocked that will help you and baby become familiar with the music, creating a foundation in the brain, ready for the learning through the engaging activities we enjoy in class.
Each new unit of Kindermusik is based on unique themes, such as things that go, animal pets, or farm life, etc. So much more than listening, you will be surrounding your baby with sounds and loving interactions as you sing along, or dance and move with these recordings.
Parents say this music works like magic with their babies in the car, or when they are fussy for seemingly no apparent reason. At this tender young age, the brain is so much more capable than the body, and it is looking for patterns and connections through rich and complex experiences, so the music on the recordings are designed as the perfect playground for building a strong neural foundation for learning.
Each unique themed unit has options for home materials in 2 formats:
Lifetime Online access to Digital Materials: through my.kindermusik.com:
- Listen to, or download the music album onto your computer
- E-book of the story we’ll be reading in class
- Download a variety of PRINTABLES with lyrics and more as your “tools”
- SEVEN other ACTIVITY Idea Starters for you and baby.
- CD of high quality music featuring a variety of voices, instruments, and styles presenting songs and chants
- Baby Board book with interesting characters, story lines, and word plays
- A Unique Instrument – designed and made durable, specifically for babies.
Kindermusik fully believes that as the person who spends the most time with baby, YOU are your child’s first teacher, and that the primary learning takes place in the home and throughout the routines of your days together. By having the following tools, you are able to enhance your ability to incorporate joyful music, movement, language, and learning activities into your baby’s active life throughout the day. As you begin to more fully understand the importance of these activities to your babies’ development, you will fine tune your skills, and watch your child thrive in so many ways.
The best way to experience this opportunity is to visit a class and try it out for yourself. We will be happy to answer any of your questions. New units start frequently, so join us as soon as you are ready. to get out of the house and make friends.
The 2021 Spring Kindermusik Session of Foundations will include 3 unique units, each with the materials of your choice.
March: Rise & Shine: Focus: Routines & Rituals
Good Morning, Sunshine – it’s time to start the day! Babies can start their days in all kinds of ways – and the way to make the most of mornings is to establish a loving, predictable, joyful, day-to-day pattern. Up and at ‘em routines and rituals take center stage in Rise & Shine.
April: Old MacDonald Focus: Tuning Baby’s Listening Ears
Time to tune up baby’s listening ears, because we’re off to the farm! With a hee-haw here and a cock-a-doodle there – when Old MacDonald gets involved, you never know whom you might run into. This unit is packed with fun animal-themed activities that emphasize focus, listening discrimination, memory, and cognition.
May: Mama Goose Focus: Wiring the Brain for Communication
Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They’re quirky, rhymey, and memorable – and are also magical for speech development, as tey work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with a child that your parents shared with you. Welcome to Mama Goose.
