The Village program is the perfect “Village” atmosphere, where moms and babies come to spend quality fun time together, away from regular routines and responsibilities. Yet they find a comfortable place to explore the social world of a group setting, while singing, dancing, and exploring instruments and props, such as scarves, balls, parachutes, and more. Parents also learn how music truly influences the development of the whole child through everyday interactions with their babies.
Spring Semester Village classes are offered on Wed. 9:30 am., or Thurs. 12:30 pm. at Explorations V Children’s Museum in Lakeland. Parents (or grandparents, or Nannies) attend with their baby for a 45 min. class once a week for 15 weeks (An 8 week semester, followed by a 7 week semester).
Cock-A-doodle-MOO! — Hop on the hayride—it’s time to head for the farm! In this unit of Kindermusik Village, families will sing songs about the farm, including “Old MacDonald,” “Hayride,” and “Clever Cows.” They’ll engage in rituals and playful activities for baby and caregiver, all centered on farm life and the unique animals found there.
During the week, families will enjoy their At Home Materials, looking through a playful picturebook of animals and the sounds they make, with matching posters for the wall, as well as a CD of the songs heard in class and an instrument for music-making at home. We even take a picture of baby that you can paste into the book to make it look like they are driving the tractor. Now it is their OWN personalized farm book. “Oh, MY baby had a farm, E-I-E-I-O”
Dew Drops—Stop and smell the roses—and lily of the valley, and tulips, and pansies . . . in the DewDrops unit of Kindermusik Village, families will play and move together to songs about flowers, such as “Jasmine Flower,” “How Does Your Garden Grow?,” and “White Coral Bells.” They’ll also hear traditional Irish music: they’ll dance a jig, move to the “Irish Trot,” and exercise to “Did You Ever See a Lassie.”
In their At Home Materials, families will receive a CD of beautifully arranged songs from class, a board book of flowers, and an instrument for music-making at home.
The Cock-a-doodle-MOO! Sunshine Jingle will brighten those little Village eyes.
And Dew Drops Flower Bells will fascinate and engage those little ears and hands. .ENROLL NOW to ensure your space in class. Find out more, and register online at http://musiconnx.kindermusik.net , or email Debbie at firstname.lastname@example.org .
