WHAT: Kiddie Academy® Educational Child Care, a nationally recognized provider of comprehensive educational child care programs, invites local families to participate in age-appropriate dance, art and music activities at an indoor Music & More event hosted by four Kiddie Academies throughout California. Laugh & Learn: Music classes for all ages An active-listening program that advances early literacy development and expression skills in young learners. This class combines your preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play with age-appropriate group activities for kids that introduce early music concepts and foster independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. Move & Groove: Music class designed for children ages 4 - 5 A vocabulary-rich program that takes early literacy, phonemic awareness, music, and pre-mathematics to the next step. In class, we engage your child in music and movement activities that also promote language, social and emotional skills, early math and early literacy, physical coordination, creativity, and more. Music is a fun and powerful avenue for learning. Kiddie Academy wants local families to see for themselves all the ways in which Kiddie Academy’s Music & More curriculum helps children develop language skills, learn about nature, colors and different cultures through song. Research shows that music makes your child a better learner, and Kiddie Academy’s Music & More lessons build on the young child’s natural love of music, stories, movement, and pretend play. Music and movement instruction improves children’s memory, cognitive development, learning skills and expressive ability.
