Throughout the year we offer special programs that are available to all the children. Group interaction and socialization are important to the development of young children, but a little one-on-one can make them feel very special! Some programs are age/class specific and others require personalized sign up sheets.
The Magic of Music
Learning how to read music and developing an appreciation for playing a musical instrument at an early age can be beneficial to success. Early childhood is the time when children learn about their world primarily through the magical process of play. The substance of play in very young children is comprised of the environmental objects and experiences to which they have been exposed. If the music environment is sufficiently rich, there will be continuous and stronger appreciation of the arts as they mature. Through one on one instruction children are able to capture the magic of music.
Music at your Feet with Miss Elyse
Elyse visits each class for a 30 minute session of music and growth. Elyse explores around connecting with rhythm and genres of music through games and activities. The music at your feet program generates energy in your child’s classroom throughout the day continuing the experience and magic of music. Circle times, activities and stories pertaining to music fill their day keeping the experience alive and open for growth and discussion.
