AWAY WE GO

Away We GoAway We GO!
In and out, up and down, Let’s go riding in the town.
Over, under, through and through, Beep! Neeeighh! Choo, choo, choo!
Round and round, near and far, By boat or plane, wagon or car.
Smooth or bumpy, fast or slow, Ready. . . set. . . and away we go!

Toddlers love to GO. Going is their gift, their license to venture out into the world and their means of retreating to the security of Dad or Mom. With toddlers’ desire to go comes an attraction to other things that go – people, animals, trains, pull toys, tricycles, cars, planes, and the list goes on. Hop on the train! Away We Go! focuses on things that go, leading you in an exploration into the world of transportation. “What are things that go?” “How do they go?” “How do they sound when they go?” “Can I go like that?” “Can I make sounds like that?” Guided by these simple questions we’ll journey through fun and exciting activities relating to trains, cars, buses, horses, wagons, airplanes and boats, sing and play along with favorite songs, such as “I’ve Been Workin’ on the Railroad” and “Wheels on the Bus.” Explore fast and slow, smooth and bumpy, and high and low and more.

All activities of course are carefully arranged to maximize your child’s growth and brain development in all 6 regions: Physical, Cognitive, Social, Emotional, Language, & Music. This creative & educational adventure consists of 15 classes (1 Parent + 14 Parent/Child.) Come experience the research proven “process” we call Kindermusik!

And a full toyshop is exactly what Kindermusik Imagine That! families will enjoy. Toys I Make, Trips I Take is focused on creating a stimulating musical environment that integrates music, pretend play, story-telling movement, and more.

Each week your preschooler will grow by leaps, skips, and hops in this fun-filled journey of the imagination. We’ll build a pretend toy shop filled with boats, trains, balls, jack-in-the-boxes and many other exciting toys, then take make-believe trips over oceans and mountains — singing together all the while. Your preschooler will love telling stories and developing rhythm and abstract thinking skills by playing the Kindermusik drum.

Children play and learn alone with their teacher for the first part of each lesson, and you’ll be sung in at the end of class for Family Sharing Time. So, Imagine That is the perfect Preschool compliment and it also helps prepare your preschooler — and you! — for the transition to Kindergarten.

CITIES

And a city that’s really many “cities” in one. There’s a city of music, of songs, recorded works, and city sounds. There’s a city of the imagination — of three- and four-and five-year-olds being whoever they imagine themselves to be today: a broom man, or maybe an opera singer? There’s a city of stories — of lost dogs and found dogs and of a globe-trotting photographer. Best of all, in Cities! children from all kinds of communities will find commonalities with their lives. So join us as we set off on yet another grand, musical adventure!
