Welcome to Our Time Away We Go! Toddlers love go GO. Going is their gift, their license to venture out into the world and their means of retreating to the security of Mom or Dad.

In Away We Go!, we are happy to give our families a curriculum that focuses on things that go, leading you to explore world of transportation.
At Home Materials include:
Two music and movement books, a home activity book, two home CD's, child's train carry box and two harmonicas - one for child and one for parent
What a Parent and Child will Experience in Class
For the toddler, every day brings new discoveries and opportunities to explore the world. Despite a display of independence, the 1.5 to 3 year old child still longs for the safety and security of parental closeness. During this time, toddlers still relishes the comfort of the familiar while also seeking the challenge of something new.
Kindermusik Our Time encourages children to be creative, to initiate their own ideas and to respond in their own ways, while the parents’ active participation gives the toddlers the security they need. Playing instruments, singing, moving, and exploring uncover an engaging musical world while building the toddlers’ confidence, self-control, and communications skills. Singing, imitating sounds, rhyming and object identification foster language skills. Creative movement to various musical “moods” develops a sense of balance, timing and spatial awareness. Listening and turn-taking encourage blossoming social skills.
Instrument exploration and ensemble skill development – Children will explore the physical characteristics and sounds of age-appropriate instruments which will eventually lead them to discover their potential for beat, rhythm, melody, and ensemble playing.
Vocal play – Through vocal play, toddlers learn to form vowels and consonants, say words and phrases, and imitate rhythm and vocal inflection. In Kindermusik Our Time, vocal play is presented within the context of songs, chants, and activities done in class.
Exploration Time — Children will love discovering specially designed instruments, textures, sounds, and movements.
Story time and early literacy – Listening to stories enhances language and speech development and fosters awareness of sounds, teaches use of language, and sends the message that words and symbols have meaning. The same experiences that help toddlers learn to read a book also help them learn to read music.
Movement Activities – Each class provides various opportunities for movement such as synchronized movement, group dances and circle games, and even expressive movement.
Together Time — Kindermusik is the essence of quality time, allowing parents to make the most of the fleeting toddler years, giving them the time and the tools to make music and memories together in class and at home.
