EARLY CHILDHOOD PROGRAMS
Mom & Tot PLAYDATE MUSICA
Baby Playdate Musica is the academy’s music program specifically designed for infants and toddlers from 0-2 years old. This weekly 60-minute parented class creates numerous experiences that promote growth in a many developmental areas, provide opportunities for socialization, and encourage a love of music.
The Royal Conservatory of Music has noted that recent research has found that “Increasingly, music and the arts are being recognized as crucial intellectual building blocks in the early years, closely linked to such cognitive functions as verbal-linguistic development, spatial reasoning, complex problem solving in math and science, and the development of emotional intelligence. This holds especially true in the early years of a child’s development.”
With this in mind, the Baby Playdate Musica program uses a variety of activities and materials to create an environment that caters to different learning styles. We introduce children to some basic music terminology, create opportunities to play instruments in an ensemble, connect the rhythms that they play with the language of books and expose them to a variety of music genres. Each lesson includes many opportunities for overall development.
Some of the many benefits of music for infants and toddlers are:
Language / Vocal Development
Bonding Between Baby and Parent
Baby Playdate Musica aims to provide an enhanced musical and developmental experience for children and their parents in a fun and engaging environment. Please click here for more information about the MuseKids Musica early childhood curriculum.
