Classes

Due to the upcoming construction and facility improvements, we are currently not offering our regular schedule of classes. This is NOT the end of the program. We look forward to serving you in the future.

Please check back often for updates. Although we are unable to offer regular classes, we hope to offer drop-in classes similar to our summer program. If you'd like to be included on the e-mail list for information regarding these classes, please contact us at firststeps@redeemerlcms.com.

Infants and Toddlers

Children learn so much during their first years of life! They quickly grow from helpless snuggly infants to walking, jumping, talking toddlers eager to explore their world.

These classes give parents and children an opportunity to play together as we explore music. Infants will have their caregiver sing and play with them, and the toddlers will be encouraged to actively participate in the music-making fun.

Activities will include bounces, wiggles, tickles, dancing, songs, circle games, and lullabies. Caregivers will be given suggestions and ideas of how to continue this musical play at home as they leave each week.

Nursery and Preschool

By this age, children are increasingly independent and able to participate independently in more activities. Caregivers still attend classes with their child, allowing them to play and have fun together.

We will continue to explore music through movement and singing. Children will learn to use high and low voices and begin to learn to sing independently.

Children will engage in an eight-part musical workout that includes pitch exploration, song fragments, simple songs, arioso, song tale, movement exploration, movement for form and expression, and movement with the beat.

Children will have the opportunity to play rhythm instruments and drums and will also begin to create their own songs and dances using their imagination.
