Our Time – Themes

FIDDLE DEE DEE

Fiddle-dee-dee — Creatures of the animal kingdom, whether furry, web-footed, hoofed, winged or whiskered, are the subject matter for Fiddle-dee-dee. Animal sounds and movements, which are so appealing to children, naturally prompt imitation and provide abundant opportunity for active listening and vocal play. Our animal theme promotes interaction between parent and child and all activities are carefully designed to maximize your child’s brain growth and development.

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!
