18 Months - 3 1/2 Years
Can you sound like an elephant? Or hop like a bunny? Our Time encourages your toddler to uncover an engaging musical world while building confidence, self-control and communications skills. Singing, imitating sounds, rhyming and object identification foster language skills. Creative movement to various musical “moods” develops a sense of balance, timing and spatial awareness. Listening and turn-taking encourage blossoming social skills.
Kindermusik Our Time is designed for children 11⁄2 years to 31⁄2 years of age. Along with an accompanying parent or caregiver, children meet weekly for a 30-minute class and enjoy singing, moving, listening and interacting socially, and playing simple instruments. Exploration Time encourages a child's discovery of specially designed instruments, textures, sounds and movements; language skills are fostered with singing, sound imitation, and vocal play; Music and Movement Story Time encourages emergent literacy skills; and creative dancing affirms a child's urge to move.

How do the At Home Materials add value to classes?
Kindermusik is much more than a weekly class and the At Home Materials you receive are just the tools you need to continue that one-of-a-kind experience together as a family.
