Our classes are designed for children 0-3 years old with a parent/caregiver. It is a 45-minute music and movement experience that includes dancing, singing songs, rhythmic rhymes, and instrument play. These activities are presented as informal, non-performance oriented musical experiences developmentally appropriate for the age range of the class and easy for parents/caregivers regardless of their own musical ability.
Sessions are quarterly and may range between 6-14 weekly classes. For the Fall they generally begin in August or September, with start dates ranging from August 15-September 30. Winter sessions generally begin in January, with the start dates ranging from Jan.1-31. Spring sessions generally begin in March, with start dates ranging from March 1-April 15. Summer sessions generally begin in June, with start dates ranging from June 1-July 5 (Summer sessions are usually shorter).
Participation by the parent/caregiver is key. Active participation by the parent/caregiver sets them up as role models. Participation is an integral part of the bonding that occurs during the class. It also helps develop a sense of community with the other children and parent/caregivers. Caregiver age must be 18 years or older.
Registration requires payment in full for the entire session. The cost is $15 a child per class per weeks in the session. The Zumbini™ Bundle is an additional $42.
