Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Violet Talks About How Special it is to Teach Big Kids
The holidays can be a stressful time for parents. Between fitting in holidays catch ups, booking flights to visit overseas family and decorating the house, there is a lot to think about during the holiday season.
This Month, It's All About You and Your Baby!
Teaching Laugh and Learn, now called Level 3 has been one of my milestones and accomplishments as a new Kindermusik Educator. I enjoy this curriculum because the children in this curriculum show evident independence.

Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Vanessa on the Challenges of Teaching One Year Olds
While I enjoy teaching all Levels of the Kindermusik curriculum, Level 2 holds a special place in my heart. I started out my Kindermusik career teaching this Level first. The children at this Level have such a sense of wonder and joy as they discover the world around them. From striking the glockenspiel to howling at a drum in class, everything can be an adventure. I feel so privileged to be a facilitator to this wonderful world around them!
Baumhaus Talk Series: Teacher Bea and Teaching Babies
One of the most challenging classes to teach is the classes for 1 year olds. Level 1 provide toddlers with a stimulating setting to explore their new movements and language skills with a sense of security, comfort and confidence. That being said, the one year olds are always moving, wanting to explore their bodies and surroundings, and they are also in a locomotor stage.
What do new mothers do all day?
The first Kindermusik class I ever taught, was Cuddle and Bounce. Now called Foundations, this class is for babies, from 0-12 months. I remember how nervous I was when I entered the classroom. There were 4 babies, ready to learn, and here I was, fresh from my Kindermusik training, and unsure of myself as a Kindermusik Educator.
Playing with Music at Home
A new mother looked at me recently during a conversation we were having about sleep deprivation during the beginning of baby’s life.
Back to Baumhaus
Young children love to sing, make music, and move to the beat. They feel competent when they learn a new song, powerful when they pound a drum or shake a tambourine, and proud when they invent a new dance. As children explore and enjoy music, they can develop skills in math, literacy, and social studies. Teachers relate music to diverse subjects and your family can continue this learning at home.
What Toys are Best for your Child
Fall is our favourite season here at Baumhaus. We get to dress-up with you and the little ones as we lead up to Halloween (October 22) and we get to sing our favourite Holiday tunes when December comes around. Most of all, Fall brings us good portents of the coming year ahead… We are officially welcoming...

The Benefits of Music for Child Development
“For a child, music is life—from the rhythm that gets his feet walking, to the familiar melody of his mother tongue, to the very beat of a parent’s heart as a child lays on his father’s chest."
Meet the Teachers: Teacher Bea
For a child, music is life—from the rhythm that gets his feet walking, to the familiar melody of his mother tongue, to the very beat of a parent’s heart as a child lays on his father’s chest. Whether for a babe of naught or a child of four, music moves and grows with the child. Whilethe examples are inexhaustible, here is a brief list.
