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.

​To further encourage a clean and safe environment, students will also be provided with their own Instrument Kit and Songbook, which they will be expected to bring to each class.


Singing, dancing, playing games - children adore this active, play-based learning environment.

In this class, children learn foundational musical skills such as tempo, meter, pitch, and volume together through educational, movement-based games and multi arts activities. 

By age 3, children are beginning to develop their singing voices, and as such, singing a wide range of songs is a vital component of the Smart Start curriculum. By age 3, children's basic cognitive skills are in place. Smart Start is designed to work with these cognitive skills through activities such as recognizing musical patterns, focusing on the most important aspects of music, and understanding connections across artistic representations. Children work in musical and artistic collaborations designed to foster basic musical knowledge and spur on individual and group creativity.

Socialization and personal growth are strengthened via group engagement. 

Children up to three years must be accompanied by a single designated care provider.

Students are registered by age as of December 31.
