Tot Rock with Parent

Ages 1 6 Classes

Wiggle and giggle to the Tot Rock beat! An introductory music and movement class with a large sensory component. Tots will use hand-held rhythm instruments and play props to improve their motor skills and coordination and learn new songs and rhymes. While kick starting your tot's imagination, each class will provide structured and unstructured time to explore. A different educational theme presented each session. Much more than a music class, join us to sing, dance, learn and play the Tot Rock way!

The session's musical activities will be based on the theme of "A Whole New World!" Each week we will pretend to ride on our magic carpets to explore a new place! A pirate ship? The Jungle? Outer space? It will be a musical adventure!

Activities will include opening songs, weekly theme introduction, 5-6 additional music activities and closing songs. Along with class content, supplemental activities will be included to enhance your child's learning. Class activities will involve rhythm, fine and gross motor, imaginative play, sensory integration and listening skills.

Mommy-N-Me/Pop-N-Tot Art Class

Ages 2-5 with parent 6 Classes

Okay, so we might be getting messy in these classes! But better in the art studio than in your house, right? Over these 2 sessions, we’ll explore a variety of different paint techniques, for example: watercolor, fingerprint paintings, marble painting and stamping with foam shapes & found objects.

Some sample projects may include: creating beautiful string-pulled flowers, colorful silhouette chalk art, awesome crayon-melting jellyfish and mesmerizing pendulum-painted pieces. (Please dress appropriately!) With BIG MESS, comes BIG FUN! One adult must be present to assist, per child registered.
