The space allows children move freely and develop their mindfulness, peer interactions, cooperation skills, and both fine and gross motor skills. After playtime, the children gather together on the mat with an engaging, guitar-playing children's music specialist for songs and movement. Children's musical ear and appreciation develop along with general knowledge and language skills as they join in for sing-alongs, musical storytelling and instrument play along with their parent or caregiver. Please note there will be no class on the following dates: April 16, April 23 and June 4. Please also check out our other Mommy & Me classes and Extra Curricular offerings on our website, both at Cooper Square and our other locations. For more information and to sign up please email [email protected], or call.
