WHAT TO EXPECT IN A TODDLER TUNES CLASS: MUSIC & MOVEMENT

(15 months - 3 yrs)

This mixed age group class is perfect for children with younger siblings. Focus is directed toward all age groups, modifying the activities to suit the class. While our younger children are perhaps learning to sit and crawl our Toddlers love to learn through moving their bodies. As they learn to crawl, walk, run and jump we use various musical beats to help them develop these gross motor skills.

Our younger children are working on shaking and gripping instruments our Toddlers are also developing their fine motor skills, so by tapping sticks, sand blocks, mallets or waving scarves around we are having a fun experience while they are strengthening these skills. While Toddlers vary in speech development, short, repetitive rhymes and songs are learnt throughout the curriculum helping them express themselves through words rather than actions!

Our younger children are encouraged to babble and sing along throughout the class and acknowledged often to encourage the quieter Toddlers to find their voice.
