Whether your baby is five weeks or five months, Foundations/Cuddle & Bounce will be perfect for you! Our Foundations classes offer a sensory-rich yet caring and gentle environment where infants can explore and react to new sounds, sensations, and objects. Shared activities for babies and their caregivers provide the opportunity to strengthen your connection with your child through joyful music-making experiences.

 Shorter 4 week, 8 week or 12 week classes can  be taken by parents on maternity leave who wish to participate in a class with their baby before returning to work. Please contact Miss Suzanne if you are interested in this option.

 

 


"After our first class, when they were only 13 weeks old, my twin daughters were so alert and ’sparkly' that I knew we had experienced something special. Kindermusik gives us a space in our week that is purely about having fun together, and gives us lots of ideas for play at home." L.P.

What you will experience in a Kindermusik Foundations/Cuddle & Bounce Class

 

"I was a little unsure about starting KM when Jack was so young but EVERYONE recommended it.  It is not only a chance to break out of the house, especially as this is my first baby, but also an opportunity to meet other parents with babies/children of a similar age. I was surprised at how many faces I knew!  The classes are well structured and Miss Suzanne makes you feel very welcome and relaxed, the take home CD’s and books are great too and give you an opportunity to learn the tunes so you can join in and engage with your baby." C.B.

Additional Information for our classes
  •  Please bring a large towel for baby to lie on. Non- slip socks, soft slippers or indoor shoes should be worn by babies and adults. Dress comfortably and be prepared for a workout. You may not need to sign up for the gym this semester.
  • There is no “right” or “wrong” way to do any activity; suggestions will be made by the teacher but you can adapt them to a level that is comfortable for you and your baby. This may change from week to week so be prepared to be creative. You and your baby will experience each activity in a way that will be different from anyone else’s in the class. Adapting each activity to fit your baby’s stage of development, personality and temperament will help you both to participate fully in class and reap the most benefits. What sets Kindermusik apart from other programs is that it is “child-centered” so have fun!
  • Those of you with lap babies will probably have the easiest time. Your baby will still be light enough to lift and dance with – and may even lie still during massage!
  • Once babies can crawl or walk that is all they will want to do! Don’t worry if they do not look interested in the class; they are still absorbing and learning even as they move around the classroom. Most of their learning will happen at home so be sure to continue the experience there.
  • Don’t worry if your baby cries. If your baby needs to nurse or have a bottle –go right ahead. If your baby needs to eat, you may use the kitchen area but please do not bring “finger foods” or “sippy cups”, which can spill, into the classroom.
  • Instruments are cleaned between classes. There are also antibacterial wipes available should you need them.

Older Siblings:

Please call ahead of time if you need to bring school age siblings to class during school holidays that are different to Kindermusik holidays.

Kindermusik Online:

Kindermusik's easy to use, online learning platform extends the magic and learning of a Kindermusik class into your own home throughout the week. Kindermusik online delivers your favorite Kindermusik songs and activities, instrumental music, books, and lyrics—as well as recipes, learning games, crafts, and more in a green-friendly digital format.
Each semester we will explore 4 units. Every new unit is an all-new theme filled with delightfully engaging, developmentally appropriate activities for newborns to 12 month olds that inspire a lifelong love of music and lay a strong early foundation for learning. Working parents who cannot attend class with baby will also have the chance to enjoy Kindermusik at home.
