Family Musik Time
A special opportunity for young children and their parents to participate each week in singing, chanting, moving, dancing, listening, and playing simple instruments using the Musikgarten curriculum for infants and toddlers. 45 minute classes are held Thursday mornings at 11:00 am. Special attention is paid towards the parent-child bond and how neurological development happens naturally in our interactive music setting. Family Preschool children and parents join the music class along with younger siblings.
Thursday mornings offer a unique class for young children and their parents to participate in a beautiful sacred Bible Story time called “Young Children and Worship” along with carefully prepared materials and an crafted art response. Children proceed to work in the Montessori Toddler environment receiving an “appetizer” to full Montessori work. Working on rolling a mat, choosing work independently, listening for the bell, and sharing “the feast” with friends are the main objectives during this experience. Following the morning work session, children and parents are reunited for a music and movement class featuring the songs from “God’s Children Sing.”
There is a time designated for parents to discuss pertinent topics of nurturing Christian Montessori principles as well as Christian parenting ideas for the home. Parents meet, share a treat and ideas. Classes begin at 9:00 and conclude at 11:45 am with the Family Musik Time (see above). Younger siblings (under 2 years old), who are enrolled in the Family Musik Time program can join the complimentary sibling nursery from 9:00-11:00 am.
