Learning through moving
Children learn best when they are emotionally engaged. Peek into a Kindermusik classroom, and you may see: babies "dancing" in the arms of their special adult, experiencing firsthand the thrill of high and low, in and out; toddlers learning self-control through stop-and-start games; children exploring bells, sticks, or shakers, learning to recognize the differences in sound, and being able to control the sound they produce. This is hands-on learning, and nowhere else is learning this much fun!
