Level 3

Age range: 3.5 to 5 years
Class structure: One unit per semester
Class size: Class with no more than 8 children with parents
Class length: 45 minutes (Parent or caregiver attends the last 15 minutes of class.)

L3 classes combine the preschooler’s natural love of music, storytelling, and imaginative play. Early music concepts are introduced and age-appropriate activities will help foster the child’s independence, social and emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. Grownups (who join in at the beginning and end of class) will also get a chance to connect with other caregivers and share in the wonder of parenting a preschooler.

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.
