Course Description

All early years programming will be delivered in person. Enhanced cleaning and safety protocols will be in effect. Please visit our Fall Programming FAQs on our student information portal for details.

Toddlers are almost always on the move! Channel your child's natural energy through music and movement learning.

The active, music-based activities in this class help support your child's cognitive, social, emotional, intellectual, and physical development, while facilitating parent-child bonding. Coordination, body control, and spatial awareness skills are accrued through games built around walking, dancing, and age-appropriate percussion instruments such as shakers, drums, and bells.

As infants grow into toddlers, their musical abilities and needs develop as well. This class works with toddler's ever-expanding cognitive skills through rich and engaging musical activities with the child and caregiver. Activities focus on topics such as musical memory, creative artistic play, and active imitation. Parents and caregivers both participate, providing further exemplars to interact with your child musically.

The activities in this class have been specifically designed to develop listening skills and improve memory through repetition, as well as to enhance cognitive skills. The toddler's social skills are also developed through experiencing music in a group setting.

A single designated care provider accompanies their child for all classes for this course.

Students are registered by age as of December 31.
