Whether your baby is five weeks or five months, our Foundations classes will be perfect for you! 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.

  

 

"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 Class. (You will still gain the same benefits in our current Virtual sessions)

 

Additional Information for our virtual classes
  • There is NO expectation that your baby will look at the screen. Just position your screen so you can see what your teacher is suggesting for each activity.
  • 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.
