Kindermusik

ABOUT KINDERMUSIK

Kindermusik is a nurturing and playful environment where your child will have fun singing, moving, playing instruments and hearing stories, while developing social skills, problem-solving skills, pre-math skills and a foundation for reading.

These classes build the skills your little one needs to be successful in both school and life. Independent research has proven that preschoolers using Kindermusik for just 30 minutes per week have shown 32% gain in language and literacy skills.

At Second Presbyterian Preschool, we are so excited to offer your child our Kindermusik classes twice per week, totaling 50 minutes per week! Each age group follows a slightly different curriculum that is appropriate for them
