Get ready to sing, play and move with your little one in this high-energy music class designed to be just right for children aged 12 to 24 months. Level 1 classes offer young toddlers a stimulating environment to explore their new movement and language skills with a sense of security, comfort, and confidence. With a mix of both parent-child joint activities and child-focused activities, you’ll be able to join right in on all the singing and dancing while also getting the chance to observe how your young toddler learns on their own.  As your child thrives in a music and movement-driven environment, you’ll have the opportunity to connect with other parents and caregivers and learn to use music to create and simplify routines at home.

"Miss Suzanne is, as always, a phenomenal teacher: the parents listen to her, the children adore her, everyone learns and has a fun time." E.L.

What you will experience in a Kindermusik Level 1/Sing & Play class:

    Additional information for our classes:

    • During class the most important thing the adults can do for each child is to be an active and patient role model. Up until about age 3, toddlers are mostly learning by observing and imitating others. To this end, please try to avoid “socializing” with other adults too much during class.
    • Children learn in many different ways; some are exuberant participants, others are quiet observers. Both are equally valid responses in class and may differ at home where the child is more comfortable. Some toddlers love to move - providing they are not in danger of hurting themselves or others, movement is acceptable, however, please be sensitive to the class environment. Kindermusik is process, not performance, orientated and the Kindermusik philosophy accepts and respects each child’s response.
    • Please try not to bring toys from home to class. However, if your child is very attached to an item please be sensitive to others who may want to share it as well.
    • There are a lot of movement activities in class - including lying and rolling on the floor! You and your child should be dressed appropriately as you will both be encouraged to participate. Non-slip socks, soft slippers or indoor shoes should be worn by children and adults.
    • If your child 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.

    Siblings:

    Because we want everyone’s class time to be special with their child, you are encouraged to make child- care arrangements for siblings. Young toddlers are easily distracted by the presence of young babies and their toys. Infant siblings who are content to stay quietly in a pumpkin seat may be brought to class with the teacher’s prior consent.
