Looking for a baby class in the afternoon? Calling all parents with babies newborn to 12 months(ish):
Come and try the newest 'Cuddle & Bounce' class on Thursday 2nd October at 3pm in the vestry of St.Clement's Church on Scarcroft Road.
First class FREE to newcomers - no commitment!
Programmes for the newest curricula are arranged in monthly themes and organised into several flexible age groups: Babies: Cuddle & Bounce (0-1+), Sing & Play (walking 1s & 2s), Toddlers: Wiggle & Grow (rising 2s & 3s), Pre-schoolers: Laugh & Learn (3s & 4s), Big Kids: Young Child (5-7s), Mixed Age: Family Time (0-7s).
Kindermusik classes include singing and vocal play, musical instrument & object exploration, creative movement and dance and listening purposefully in a small, friendly setting.
Every Kindermusik 4-class theme comes with Kindermusik@Home digital materials so that you can continue the musical fun (and learning) at home. 80% of the content is parent focused and the other 20% gives you, the parent, the choice of using screen time or not. Each set of digital home materials contains all the class music, an abundance of unit-specific, age-appropriate materials and activities –all tied to the class content. The digital home materials are built specifically to make it fun and easy for a parent to connect class-time to home-time, and to enrich both experiences. Everything a parent needs to read the class story, play a game, do a finger play or dance, teach new words or instrument sounds, plan an activity, do a craft, follow a recipe, take a “field trip” (real or imagined), or enjoy pretend play . . . it’s all in one spot!
Free taster sessions for individuals or small groups can be arranged. Music workshops within toddler and pre-school groups, nurseries and primary schools in York are also available.
