    Kindermusik

    Kindermusik is the world’s leading music program for babies and young children that is offered in a fun, educational and social environment. This nationally recognized music program offers lessons that incorporate singing, dancing, movement and rhythm instruments.

    Since 1978, Kindermusik has helped children around the world build a strong foundation for a lifetime love of learning. A positive way to introduce your baby, toddler, or preschooler to the joy of music while enjoying quality time.

    We’ve been attending Miss Lynn’s Kindermusik class since my first son was six months old. We always leave the class with a little extra pep in our step! Music can bring so much joy and confidence to a child as they develop. I love that the program incorporates singing, instruments and tools to help the children develop an ear for music while acquiring other important skills as well. Miss Lynn is wonderful with the children and guides the parents to understand how each activity helps their children‘s development.

    As a new family living in Barrie the class has been a fantastic way to meet other parents/children and feel a part of the community. I highly recommend the class!

    FAQ

    Would a virtual Kindermusik class still engage my child? How do they work?2021-01-11T11:42:41-05:00

    With the virtual sessions (over Zoom), our licensed educator guides parents as they engage their children with the activities, since babies and very young children aren’t inclined to watch the screen themselves. With the exception of the 3-5 year-olds class, participants are muted during the lesson to minimize background noise, but the educator continues to give instructions and feedback, in real time, to parents and children. (There’s an opportunity for two-way conversations before and after the lesson.) It’s okay if your child wanders out of the room periodically; they’re not expected to stay in front of the camera. And, like in any Kindermusik class, however they want to participate in each activity is fine; there’s no element of achievement.  It’s a fun, education opportunity to bond with your child, whether in person or on line.

     

    What do you do in the classes and how long are they?2021-01-11T11:52:51-05:00

    Each class is 45 minutes long, and semesters run for 8 to 12 weeks depending on the time of year. The lessons are a series of brief, age-appropriate activities involving music or rhythm that benefit the children in all areas of their development. Specific activity benefits are shared periodically to give caregivers insight into their child’s developmental needs. Singing, moving to music, chanting, object exploration, rhythm instruments and story-time are regular segments of each lesson.

    What are the Kindermusik digital home resources? Can I register without them?2022-08-19T16:24:29-04:00

    The digital resources are required for registration because they’re important part of the program. They give you access to the recorded music and stories from all the themes in each level so you can continue the classroom experience at home. There are also parenting tips and stimulating suggested home activities. Parents who want their child to have a more tactile Kindermusik experience at home have the option to purchase the book and instrument (or substitute) that goes with each theme.

    What’s the difference between level 2 and level 3?2021-01-11T11:58:30-05:00

    Level 2 lesson activities assume caregivers are participating with the children, whereas level 3 (for children learning independence) only includes caregiver participation at the beginning and end of each lesson. They’re encouraged to leave the room after the hello song and will be called back in later. However, if your child wants you to stay, and you’re agreeable to that, you’re welcome to.

    Should my 1-year-old be in Foundations or level 2?2021-01-11T11:59:27-05:00

    They could be in either. Even though level 2 is geared to toddlers who are a little older, if the Foundations class time doesn’t work for them, or you feel they’ve outgrown it, they can switch to level 2 early. They’ll need a little extra help with some activities, but they’ll still enjoy the class and benefit from it.

    How old should babies be to start classes?2021-01-11T12:00:09-05:00

    Each activity of the Foundations curriculum is adaptable and beneficial for newborns, crawlers and early walkers, so as soon as parents are ready, their baby can start. To encourage them to participate, we offer a 50% tuition discount for infants 4 months and under.
