Description: These classes are action-filled for toddlers, preschoolers and their parents - full of energy, often on the move, exploring and learning, balanced with calming moments to help regulate their emotions.
Activities: We'll experience the joy of playing together through finger plays, wiggling and tickling activities, body awareness songs and bouncing songs. Dancing with scarves and hiding games are also part of the fun!
Musical & Developmental Goals: They'll also be engaged in rocking and bouncing activities, circle songs and listening excerpts and tonal and rhythmic patterns to shape listening skills and acquaint the child with the nuances of music. Movement is a big part of this class to allow children to feel the beat of music and learn about spatial awareness while enhancing their gross motor skills and coordination with instruments such as rhythm sticks, jingles, rattles, occasional use drums.
Parents! It is normal for children to wander during this class, and adults are not to worry... they are still listening while in the environment and taking everything in!
