Spring 2023 Semester Begins Monday, January 16
When music and movement are a natural, joyous part of childhood, children benefit greatly in many areas of life. Language development, self-expression, memory skills, concentration, social interaction, fine motor skills, listening, problem-solving, teamwork, goal setting, and coordination are all improved by early music and movement education. PCPC’s Musikgarten classes provide a way for parents to give this gift to their children while bonding together. Grandparents are welcome, too!
Please note that the courses for babies and toddlers require a caregiver to be present with their child at all times. The preschool music course asks that caregivers join their children for the last 10 minutes of each class. Please contact Katie Haring, firstname.lastname@example.org, with any questions or concerns.
