Your child will love singing, dancing, and playing instruments with you and new friends and you’ll love helping them practice a wide variety of abilities such as gross and fine motor skills, turn-taking, social skills, and active listening. And the learning will continue after you leave the classroom! We’ll provide practical tools, tips and ideas to continue supporting your child’s development through singing and playing once class is over.
