Kindermusik by Baumhaus
Kindermusik is the world’s most trusted early childhood music and movement program. Using music to promote holistic development across language, literacy, math, cognition, socio-emotional and physical skills, it is grounded in a play-based environment and nurtures the bond between parent and child.
Through the foundation of music, Kindermusik activities gently teach real-life skills. Kindermusik programs are geared to address developmental milestones, from those of newborn babies to young children, from 0–4 years.

Cuddle & Bounce
Ages 0–12 months
A Strong Foundation For Early Learning
You already know that music is one of your baby’s favorite things, but did you know that it’s also one of the best things for his developing mind? Your baby’s brain is filled with billions of neurons waiting to be connected through sensory stimulation. Our baby music classes offer a sensory-rich yet caring and gentle environment. The activities and relationships you engage in there will develop and strengthen your baby’s neural pathways, enhance your growing parent-child bond, and help you understand the how’s and why’s of your baby’s development.
In class, babies and infants explore and react to new sounds, sensations, and environments. They begin to use developmentally appropriate instruments like shakers, rattles, drums, and tambourines in instrument-play activities that engage and develop both hemispheres of the brain. They benefit from both side-by-side play with other babies, and cuddling and rocking time with you. In baby class you’ll get to babble, hum, and dance together–all key ingredients in your baby’s development of early social skills.
Older babies will start to develop both gross- and-fine motor skills through fingerplays and movement activities. They’ll discover more about how their bodies work and move as they become new walkers.
It’s never too early to give your baby a musical start

Play, Improvise, Perform
We believe that the goal of theatre is to bring awareness and change to ourselves and the world.
DramaLab is a holistic creative arts program designed to develop and empower people by supporting their artistic growth. With a focus on inspiring love and joy for creative expression, it is especially beneficial for young children, who develop a passion for performing arts through storytelling, collaborative and interactive exercises.
Guided by professional performing arts teachers in a supportive and positive environment, DramaLab uses the concepts of play, improvise and perform to build real-life skills such as clear spoken communication, critical thinking, empathy and social awareness.
Play is all about introducing theatre and drama concepts to children in a creatively engaging way. It’s through play that we encourage children to learn core skills.
Improvise is a fun part of the process. Here, children can try out their creative concepts in a safe and supportive environment. There are no right or wrong ideas, just an opportunity for children to express themselves creatively.
Perform is a process that varies from child to child. Performances can be for peers, for parents or as part of a community-related show. We respect the pace and preferences of each child and allow them to choose which performances they would like to take part in.
