Encourage your child’s uniqueness and creativity from the very start of life.  Songs emerge magically as your baby plays and interacts in class. Musical connections nurture and deepen relationship between parent/caregiver and baby, and encourage natural curiosity. Joanne’s CD, The Flying Teapot is also used, along with multicultural music. There's movement, instrument play, balls, scarves, connections and fun! You’ll be amazed at your child’s own expression.

Multicultural and traditional music is also used.
