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 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 class materials ensure 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 class 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 materials for spring 2019

Cities! — People on the go, rushing everywhere — in the city!” Meet the Busy Places and Friendly Faces of Cities! — the Imagine That! unit where we will co-create a city that’s familiar, yet like no other. 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!
