Newborns to 1 year



Did you know sound recognition begins in the womb? Foundations classes are all about exploring and reacting to new sounds, objects, and movements. Plus, parents and caregivers heighten connections with their babies by learning bonding techniques.



What should a baby’s first music class offer?

It is so much more than lullabies and swaying. Educators will also teach families how sound exploration, listening activities, and dances help babies communicate, stimulate eye-tracking skills, and learn to move and coordinate new muscles.


What to expect...




Sing it again...babies will experience a variety of songs and rhymes in different ways. Bonus: a parent's singing voice is their favorite!


*Vocal Plays

Your turn! Babies will participate in back-and-forth vocal plays and other parent-child interactions, helping them with early language development.


*Object Exploration

From scarves to shakers, little ones will use all of their senses to explore a variety of safe, engaging props and instruments.


*Bonding Exercises

The best part...parents and caregivers learn bonding techniques through intentional touch, baby exercise, and relaxation activities.



What you'll learn...

*Movement Control

Different movement activities help babies strengthen their core muscles, which increases their sense of balance and control over movements.


*Social Adaptability

Group activities allow babies to experience familiar and unfamiliar social experiences in a safe and secure way.


*Listening and Communication Skills

Listening to music and doing vocal play exercises helps develop a baby’s back-and-forth communication skills.


*Language and Literacy Development

Introducing spoken sounds and rhythms through songs and rhymes helps support language and literacy development.



Associating music with tricky transitions like nap time helps establish calm and encourages self-soothing.

Fall Themes

Little Red Caboose (September): All aboard! Little Red Caboose is all about—you guessed it—trains, trains, trains! Hitch on up for a chuggity-chug voyage through train sounds, train movements, train activities, and train songs. Woo-woo!


Old MacDonald (October): Time to tune up baby’s listening ears, because we’re off to the farm! With a hee-haw here and a cock-a-doodle there–when Old MacDonald gets involved, you never know whom you might run into.


Nighty Night (November): It’s nighttime, but not quite bedtime yet! Let’s use our vision to explore the night. We’ll see the moon and the twinkling stars, and say hello to Wee Willie Winkie and the man in the moon! Finally, it’s time to get ready for beddy-bye—with bathtime, a little playtime, and then it’s time to say Nighty Night!
