NEW! Key Magia Music Classes
Encourage the development of your child's musical skills with a curriculum that captures children's imagination and builds connections between music, movement and early learning. Classes are designed to teach foundational music skills and also to promote increased attention span, impulse control and language skills.
Join in with other children and caregivers as we play and explore music together! Fun activities begin to build music competency and lay a foundation for a lifetime love of music. Musical play includes singing, dancing, finger plays, scarf games and instrument play. Simple echo games help young children begin to hear basic rhythm and melody patterns, the building blocks of music. An adult caregiver is required to attend with each enrolled child or sibling group. Full adult participation is needed to interact with and assist each child. Thursdays 9:30-10:15A
