This is the "essential" Music Together® class: one for infants (newborns to 9 months), toddlers (9 - 2 mos.), and big kids (2 - 5 yos.).
They can attend from birth through kindergarten through all nine song collections for ages 0-5. Younger children enjoy watching and imitating older children, older children learn by leading, and adults are happy because the whole family experiences music together. The whole family is welcome for this important musical experience.
Research has shown that mixed-age classes are wonderful for your child's developmental process. After having experimented with separating the ages, Music Together decided to keep the children in mixed ages classes.
The children learn from one another in this unique opportunity. The infants look up to the bigger kids as role models and become entranced with the older children. The older children can become helpers in class, learn to be nurturing, and can become a "role model." Parents let go of comparing children of the same age and simply relax into the family environment.
