We Now Offer Kindermusik!

Here's a little pre-Christmas treat for for our Patchers and their families...we will start offering Kindermusik's ABC Music & Me classes every week at The Pa-Paw Patch beginning in the month of December!  These classes will be FREE for all two-, three-, and four-year-olds in December and January.  After that, you can sign your child up to continue having a weekly ABC Music & Me class for just $5 per month!

Kindermusik is a well-known name in music education, and they have built the ABC Music & Me curriculum specifically designed for preschoolers to encourage language and literacy.  Research has proven that children who took part in the ABC Music & Me program for 30 minutes per week had 32% more literacy gain.

Each class is 30 minutes and is held once a week.  Every class includes songs, poems, a story, rhythm activities and a chance to play musical instruments.  Children will learn phonemic awareness, early reading skills, and skills in following directions from focused listening with music.  The best part is, you will also get login information so you can access that at-home website, which has lots of games, activities, and downloadable songs that your children learned in their weekly lesson.  It's really cool!  You can visit Kindermusik's website for more information about the program here.

We're excited to get started, and our first lesson will be Wednesday, December 4th!
