Our program is designed to be a blessing to, families with small children. We will provide you with a Christian, developmentally appropriate environment that will nurture and stimulate your child while at the same time giving you some time to yourself! In our warm and caring environment, your children, ages 12 months to 5 years olds, will have the opportunity to grow in all aspects of development: physical, social, emotional, and spiritual.
Hours are Monday to Friday 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.
We are proud to now offer the early childhood music program Music Together. Since 1987, Music Together has introduced millions of children, parents, and teachers around the world to the joys of family music-making and the powerful benefits of having music in their lives.
From babyhood through the early elementary years, Music Together nurtures each child’s natural musicality in a playful, musically rich learning environment. Our research-based music classes are designed to be non-formal and non-performance oriented, so your child can learn at his or her own pace, in a way that’s developmentally appropriate.
By enrolling in our children’s music program, you’ll experience a whole semester of classes led by one of our teachers. You’re guaranteed to learn new songs and music activities to inspire you to bring music into your family’s everyday life.
At Music Together, we know that children learn differently than adults. They learn instinctively and constantly, and teach themselves through imitation and play, through being immersed in their environment, and through interaction with adults and older children. The family-like setting of Music Together classes creates an ideal learning environment. And it’s all based in research in early childhood and music development.
Learn about the research behind Music Together at the Music Together Worldwide website.
