Peas and Carrots (September): Yum, yum, yum.  Are you hungry? In Peas & Carrots, you’ll have fun moving, singing, and playing as you explore snacks, meals, cooking, and mm, mm, eating!

Home kit includes a storybook and Young Maestro Tambourine, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

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.

Home kit includes a storybook and a pony rattle, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

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!

Home kit includes a storybook and giraffe squeaker, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

  WINTER/SPRING SESSION 2022

January 10 - May 5

Age Range: 2 months to 14 months

Class Structure: 45 minutes each week

Themes: Mama Goose, Peekaboo, Bluebird, Bluebird, & Nature Walk (see descriptions below)

Cost: $20 registration fee for each family paid at registration, $248 for 15 weeks of classes (4 payments of $62) plus 4 home kits. Each home kit includes digital music and a storybook to match our monthly theme, plus a new instrument or prop in each kit.

Mama Goose (January): Nursery rhymes endure for a reason. They are quirky, rhymey, and memorable–and are also magical for speech and language development, as they work to “wire” the brain for communication before speech even begins! What bliss to share something with your child that your parents shared with you–or better yet, to learn and share one for the very first time!

Home kit includes a storybook and clip clap instrument, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

Peekaboo! (February): A house with a baby is a house full of love. (And fun…and toys…and noise!) Peekaboo! peeks into the “1, 2, 3, punch” patterns of repetition, anticipation, and surprise. Have fun with vocal play, sensory exploration, and learning through play.

Home kit includes a storybook and scarf, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

Bluebird, Bluebird (March): Chirp! Tweet! Quack! This unit is a sound-rich flight (of fancy) into the sky, where you’ll explore birds, feathers, and the outdoors.

Home kit includes a storybook and chime ball, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.

Nature Walk (April): Let’s explore the wonders and sensations of the outdoors!  We’ll use our eyes to look all around, and our ears to listen to all of the sounds we hear.  Plus, we’ll touch, and smell, and move, and play! There’s no feast for the senses quite like a Nature Walk.

Home kit includes a storybook and snail shaker, plus digital music that can be streamed from any smartphone, laptop, or tablet. Home kit items match the theme of the unit.
