The teachers at Kindermusik Discovery know that children’s minds are fertile ground for learning. That’s why they use singing, dancing, and instrument exploration to sow the seeds of language development, social skills, and coordination. Rooted in the belief that all children are naturally musical, their program’s research-based philosophy operates on a curriculum whose methods allow children to move at their own pace as they grow from infancy to age 7. Throughout the whole program the educators emphasize having fun. The encouraging atmosphere helps pupils develop a love of music from an early age while also enhancing literacy skills, social and emotional development, math skills, and pattern recognition. Acknowledging that most learning takes place at home, the program also equips students with materials such as books and CDs for taking back to the sandcastles they live in.
