April 6, 2024
Hillsboro Public Library
Class location: Hillsboro Public Library, 54 Third St. Hillsboro, WV
Come join other parents and young children for 40 minutes of fun, frolicking, singing, dancing, playing with basic rhythm instruments, and a wonderful time of bonding for 8 consecutive Saturday mornings starting April 6. The children will be blissfully unaware they are developing readiness skills for school success.
Yes, music is not only fun! It teaches listening, movement, eye hand coordination, gross and fine motor coordination, following directions, pitch, rhythm, social interactions with other children, and the list goes on. This is an established program that has been successful for decades all over the world. The songs are fun, and easy to learn.
You can expect to learn some brand new songs, lullabies, movement activities, finger chants, and childhood musical games. No need to bring anything except your child and a desire to have fun through music and movement. No skills necessary, just a sense of fun. We recommend that you and your child bring socks and take off your shoes in the class!
Please do not sign up your child unless their age is 18-48 months. We highly recommend that you only sign up one child. We hope to eventually add infant classes, if there is enough interest. Please email if you have questions. firstname.lastname@example.org
Please note that there is a limit of 8 children due to space limitations. Your registration fee covers all 8 classes!
