“As a child care provider for over 3 decades, I understand the need for high quality, children’s learning programs. The children at my daycare have enjoyed Kindermusik with Lynn Thompson for years.

Lynn allows children to learn at their own pace in a fun and interactive program. She has customized her programs to suit the needs of our autistic students, incorporating sign language that allows the children the freedom to explore music in their own way.

Her Kindermusik programs are beneficial to growth and development. Both parents and children love her, and thats why we continue to come back year after year.”

— Gail, Child Care Provider, Barrie

Foundations Themes

  • Mama Goose

    Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They’re quirky, rhymey, and memorable–and are also magical for speech and language development, as they work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with your child that your parents shared with you–or better yet, to learn and share one for the very first time! Welcome to Mama Goose.

  • Peas & Carrots

    Yum, yum, yum. Are you hungry? In Peas & Carrots, you’ll have fun moving, singing, and playing as you explore snacks, meals, cooking, and mm, mm, eating!

Level 2 Themes

  • Pet Parade

    Gather your critters! It’s time for some pet-themed fun as we sing, dance, play instruments, and share our experiences of the animals that bring love and laughter into our lives. We’ll gallop like horses, scamper like mice, and fly like birds as we develop our motor skills, vocabulary, recall, imagination, and so much more. Get ready to meow, neigh, woof, and squeak along as we all join in the Pet Parade!

  • Time For Lunch

    Come and get it! There’s nothing that gives us more joy and comfort than sharing good food and good stories with those we love. In this unit, we’ll explore food – from preparing to eating – through songs, vocal play, instruments, and focused listening activities. So wash your hands and put on your apron. It’s time to chop the veggies, mix the pancake batter, and grow some peas. It’s Time for Lunch!

KINDERMUSIK Level 2

14 Months to 4 Years *With parent or caregiver

10:00 Am Thursdays Or Saturdays – 10 Weeks Starting April 16 & 18

NOTE: classes will be live-streamed for the foreseeable future

This music-filled class celebrates the unique joys of your growing child. Each week your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and her new friends and you’ll love helping her practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. In class, we’ll also share tips and ideas for using music throughout the week. Plus, the fun (and learning!) continue with the Kindermusik Home digital home materials, including music from class, musical activities, and each month’s story.

KINDERMUSIK Level 3

3 & 4 Years *Parents in at beginning and end

No class is currently available for this age group. Consider level 2 instead.

NOTE: classes will be live-streamed for the foreseeable future

Each week in class we combine your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate activities that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. We also connect you with other parents who share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler. Parents join class for the final activities. The Kindermusik home materials bring the music, activities, and each month’s story everywhere you go. The repetition enhances the learning—and the fun!

Themes change each semester.

Level 3 Themes

  • Animals a-Dancing

    What’s your favorite dance? What’s your favorite animal? What’s your favorite instrument or song? The activities in this unit will help us answer these questions, discover our preferences, and become more self-aware in the process. Along this journey of self-awareness, we’ll also develop our motor, language, and vocal skills using songs, music, movements, and instrument play-alongs. Prepare to ribbit like a frog, roll like a pig, and swing like a monkey as we join the Animals A-Dancing!

  • Home Sweet Home

    Get ready to spruce up the house in this home-themed unit. We’ll turn tasks such as cooking, cleaning, sawing, painting, and hammering into fun, pretend-play activities that make us move more creatively and use our imaginations. At the same time, we’ll explore the relationship between sounds and symbols, and build community as we sing and play together. Whether it’s a great big house (or a den, nest, or burrow!), there’s no place like Home Sweet Home!
