Enrollment Includes:

  • Developmentally appropriate curriculum for parents and babies, ages newborn to 18 months

Hickory, Dickory, Tickle, and Bounce — Research shows the more you expose your baby to nursery rhymes and songs, the stronger those emerging language-learning skills will be. That’s why these Mother Goose-like stories and rhymes are the main theme of this class. Plus, you’ll develop research-proven communication strategies with your child through listening activities, speaking “parentese,” and sign language.

Home Materials: CD of beautifully arranged nursery rhyme and songs from class, a rhyming picture board book—Hickory, Dickory, Tickle, and Bounce, a set of Art Banners, and an instrument for music-making at home.

What Families Experience in Class:

  • Singing — From the first “Hello” song to the last “Goodbye,” exploring a variety of musical styles and genres leads children to find their own voice. Plus singing helps with memory and recall, physical development, creativity, and socialization.
  • Assorted Movement — Whether moving as a family, as a class, or as individuals, Family Time movement activities enhance coordination skills, create opportunities for imitation and exploration, and give everyone something to smile, rock, bounce, or dance about.
  • Story Time — Reading aloud to children stimulates their curiosity, expands their knowledge, and broadens their understanding of language.
  • Family Jam — Children as well as adults will love selecting a unique instrument and joining in one big class jam instrument play along session each week.
  • Musical Concepts — Fun engaging activities bring out the musicality in everyone, from the youngest member of the family to the oldest.  Families learn more about music as they learn more about each other.
  • Expert advice — A Kindermusik educator explains how the musically based activities enhance each child’s complete development.
  • Learning continues at home — With the home materials, the learning and bonding continues at home with the child’s best teacher—the parent!

Here, There and Everywherethe five sub-themes center around different family outings:  a visit with a friend, an outing at the park, a trip to the city, an afternoon at the aquarium, and a day on the farm.  Move like animals with this unit’s story Flip-Flap, Sugar Snap!  And follow a girl’s adventure as she loses her jambourine during the day’s outings and then finds it in the story Jingle-Jangle Jambourine. 

Home Materials: Two Books—Flip-Flap, Sugar Snap! and Jingle-Jangle Jambourine, two Home CDs, Family Guide, board game, and two jambourine instruments.

When: April 4th to May 23rd (8 weeks)- Thursdays
Time: 6:00-6:45pm
Where: Grace United Methodist Church
119 North Frederick Avenue
