|Tips for Making the Most
of Class Time
If you can, plan to arrive
3-5 minutes early
Arriving a little early provides time for your child
to settle in to the musical environment, and for
you to connect with other parents and
You'll have so much more fun if you do! For
your child, barefoot is best, because children
learn through touch, and they have TONS of
touch receptors in their feeet. For adults, it's
best to wear or bring socks.
Follow the child...
The best thing you can do during class is to
focus on engaging with your child, and many
times your child's favorite way to experience the
activity may be different from what the other
kids are doing. It's all okay! We'll show you how
to continue engaging with your child no matter
what s/he is doing. "Follow the child" simply
means letting your little one show you how
s/he would most like to participate, and then
finding a way to play with him or her.
Make every day a Kindermusik day!
You and your child will benefit enormously from
the Kindermusik experience, especially if you
make active use of your Home Materials. We
know that while music classes like
Kindermusik can be exciting and fun in and of
themselves, the real benefits occur when the
activities from class become meaningfully
applied to your child's life at home and on the
go with you. You'll get extra value out of your
classes if you and your child get to celebrate
your learning not only in class, but also during
your daily lives together.
See you in class!
