Newborns through kindergarten with parent or caregiver (newborns to age 6). Today's leading child development researchers recommend mixed-age groupings because they foster a more natural learning setting in which the parent/caregiver plays an important role. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating the older ones, older children learn by leading the younger ones, and nobody's left at home with the babysitter. Every child participates at his or her own level in many different areas: singing, moving, chanting, listening, watching, or exploring musical instruments. Babies love watching the older kids and dancing with mom or dad. Older children thrive in an environment that supports their musical creativity. Classes include a variety of stimulating and fun adult-child activities, offering new ways to play musically at home. Any caregiver can bring the child or children: nanny, grandparent, babysitter, or parents. The whole family is welcome for this essential family music experience.
