I LIKE the Beach !!!
Really, I do. I spent most every weekend of my childhood with my family at the beach, and I have such wonderful memories of walking down the beach gathering seashells, digging in the sand and making sand castles with my dad, jumping over the waves, and chasing seagulls.
Does your family like the beach and all of the mess that comes with it? Or is your family more interested in boat rides and deep water sea life? Or perhaps you have folks who like the idea of the beach without the gritty sand and salty skin. Because I have good friends in all areas across this spectrum, and we all like good tunes to accompany our adventures.
Our summer session for families will provide you the perfect playlist and so many ideas for interactive play for all your real beach trips, boat trips, and even your relaxing pretend beach days at home.

If so, you will see the creativity in your child burst at the seams through story-telling, music-making, and artistic creation during each of these FIVE 2-1/2 hour adventures. Max=8 students.
Find Kindermusik near You
Kindermusik educators can be found in every US state, as well as over 60 countries around the world. If not near enough to join us in Lakeland, FL, use your zip code in the Kindermusik Locator to see which programs may be near you. If any of my educator friends are also teaching Peek-a-Boo! this summer, please add your name and location in the comments below.
Unlike most other music programs for young children, Kindermusik is designed as an everyday musical experience. That’s why Kindermusik puts so much energy into creating high quality At Home materials that are second to none. Thoughtfully crafted sets of materials are purposefully incorporated to provide the most complete and the best possible musical learning experience available for the entire family.
Through the grant, ABC Music & Me provided all the classroom teaching materials, a one-day training session for teachers and staff, and take-home kits for families to use together. Since 40% of the children enrolled in the O.C.E.A.N. Inc Head Start program speak Spanish as their first language, take-home kits were provided in English and Spanish. Language-specific family engagement will encourage more parent participation and give them confidence as their child’s first teacher.
Other great options include Pyramid Lake, Edith Lake and Lake Annette. Pyramid Lake has a main beach and 3 smaller beaches as well as a place you can rent boats from the Pyramid Lake resort. Lake Edith is at its best for family water play at the end of the summer when the water level is lower. It is located right nearby Lake Annette which has picnic areas and a playground.
