Kindermusik Imagine That girlJoin your preschooler on a musical journey of discovery and exploration…a journey limited only by the power of imagination. Pretend play activities along with music, vocal development, storytelling, movement, and literature will capture your preschooler’s potential to learn.

Designed for active, energetic, enthusiastic, and imaginative children ages 3.5 to 5, Imagine That! classes encourage socialization, sharing, and participating in group activities. Singing becomes a focus for enhancing the preschooler’s vocal development as expressive language is just beginning to emerge. You will have fun participating together with your child in the last 10-15 minutes of class during Sharing Time, where we will introduce Home Activities they can enjoy together throughout the week.

What a Parent and Child Will Experience in Class:

  • Pretend Play — Pretend play activities along with music, vocal development, storytelling, listening, movement, and literacy are a big part of each class. When based upon a child’s real life experiences, pretend play helps develop language, sensory, motor, and cognitive skills.
  • Musical Variety and Singing — Activities include a mixture of musical genres and styles and provide a setting for children to explore their many voices and to use a “singing voice.” Singing helps with memory and recall, physical development, creativity, and socialization.
  • Storytelling and Literacy — Each class is built on the development of a story, so you’ll hear preschoolers search for the word to say what they mean and try to keep up with their busy minds, emerging wants, needs, likes, and dislikes.
  • Parent Involvement — Preschoolers are learning to be self-sufficient in a group setting of peers, while many times still needing the emotional security provided by a parent. The preschooler experiences both in Imagine That! Caregivers participate in the last 10-15 minutes of class. Plus the At Home Materials ensures the learning continues at home with each child’s best teacher—the parent.

Enrollment includes:

  • Developmentally appropriate curriculum for parents and preschoolers, ages 3.5 to 5 years
  • Weekly 45-minute class includes a variety of activities, with the last several activities in class shared with parents
  • Set of At Home Materials — 40-page activity book, two literature books, play set or game, instrument, CDs and digital music downloads of music from class, weekly newsletter, and full lyric activity packet download

Theme and home materials for fall 2017

See What I SawSee What I Saw encourages families to enjoy music and special times together in a park-like setting! Your child will climb up the slide, bounce up and down on the see-saw and fly through the air on the swings while exploring musical concepts, developing coordination, expanding language skills and maturing socially and emotionally – ALL THRU PLAY! Adding to the thrill are at-home projects such as finding patterns, exploring bird sounds and dressing up.

invite your child to continue the fun and learning through the use of their Kindermusik Clatterpillar, two Literature Books, two Home CDs, a Park Game Set and a Family Activity Book. Research shows that two elements set Kindermusik apart from other music offerings: the At-Home play materials and activities, and the curriculum itself which supports the development of the TOTAL child. All newcomers to Imagine That also receive their very own child-sized Imagine That backpack. We hope you’ll join us for a great time of singing, dancing, storytelling, and imagining.

toysToys I Make – Trips I Take — What’s more exciting to a 3 to 5-year-old than a new toy? How about an entire Toy Shop full of toys! And a full toyshop is exactly what Kindermusik Imagine That! families will enjoy. Toys I Make, Trips I Take introduces the musical environment of a remarkable toy shop!

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 join in at the end of class for Family Sharing Time. Imagine That is the perfect Preschool compliment and it also helps prepare your preschooler – and you! – for the transition to Kindergarten.
