I have some exciting news to share with you: Kindermusik classes are now being offered here in Windsor!
I had read up on Kindermusik a while back and thought it sounded like a fantastic program, but wasn’t able to find any classes nearby. So when I recently received an email from a lady named Sue, informing me that she was offering Kindermusik classes here in Windsor, well to say I was super excited would actually be a bit of an understatement.
Why am I so hyped about Kindermusik?
Take a look at the Kindermusik webpage and you can read up all about how age appropriate musical engagement can help your child develop all sorts of important skill sets; everything from early literacy skills to reasoning skills, and social and emotional skills, just to name a few.
The basis of the Kindermusik class is to move, dance and play to the music. Parents take part in the class, interacting with their kids, singing, dancing, and playing simple musical instruments. The take home materials, combined with the experiences you have together in class, give you music based activities to enjoy at home with your kids.
Baby-G and I have actually already been out to our first free preview class and we loved it. It’s an experience I definitely recommend and I’ll be writing more about it soon.
Yep, that’s right, we went to a free preview class. And here’s the cool part – anyone can take a free preview class at any time. Just contact the instructor by email and let her know that you’d like to come out and check out the class. If you enjoy it you can register at the end of class, and if not, no harm no foul. I was there when some folks were deciding to come back again, and other’s weren’t. The instructor was not only good with the kids, but also a pleasure to deal with, and wasn’t pressuring anyone to sign up or come back again. I think it’s very cool that you don’t need to neccessarily register right at the begining and take all of the classes. As long as there are spots left open, you can join in at any time and you only pay for the number of classes remaining, plus the cost of the take-home materials.
Currently two different classes are being offered in Windsor:
Our Time: Wiggles & Giggles
for ages 18 months to 3 years,
Sat 10:00 – 10:45am,
runs for 16 weeks and started on Saturday Sept. 10th
for ages newborn to 18 months,
Sat 11:00 – 11:45am,
runs for 8 weeks and started on Saturday Sept. 10th
The classes take place in the back room of Bump Maternity & Baby (1719 Wyandotte St. E.), and as of when this was written spots were still available in both classes. Check out the instructors website for further info: www.kindermusikwithsue.com.
Disclosure: I am receiving Kindermusik classes “at cost” in exchange for doing a series of posts on our experiences with taking the classes.
