A few days ago, my daughter Liz was able to finish her first semester in her Kindermusik class. We decided to have Liz enrolled in Kindermusik to expose her to other children since she has no playmates at home.
We were so thrilled seeing her enjoy each session. She became an instant Teacher Jeannie fan. Here are few of the things that I love about Kindermusik.
Each Kindermusik session is automatically a family bonding for us. Each session means we are going to have two hours full of singing, dancing and playing along with our kid. As a working mom, I see this as an opportunity to make up for those days when I needed to stay in the office and leave our daughter at home.
Kindermusik is all over the metro. You can chose which class you prefer to attend to depending on your location. They have branches in Quezon City, Ortigas, Taguig, Las Pinas, Alabang, Manila and Greenhills. For full list of their location, click here.
As a working mom, I appreciate how much they took our schedule into consideration. Depending on your location, Kindermusik offers classes from Monday to Sunday, from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM. They are also okay if you need to have a session rescheduled if there are other urgent matters you need to attend to. You just have to inform them ahead of time, and they can check if there are still slots available in other sessions that you can fill in.
I love Teacher Jeannie. I admire her positive disposition and her presence in the class. She’s always smiling, always happy, and always giddy. Teacher Maya and Teacher Impy are great too. They are very warm and very accommodating. I also love the attention that they are giving to each student to ensure that they participate in the class.
It wouldn’t be Kindermusik without great children’s songs, would it? I believe they carefully choose songs that kids would love and would easily remember. When you enroll in their class, they give you access to download the songs used in the class you are enrolled to. My daughter sings and dances to it every single day. Having it played in the car during a two hour road trip to Batangas had made our drive less stressful.
This is one of my favorite Kindermusik activity. Having my kid dress up in different costumes. She can be a train, a car, a carrot, a cowboy, NAME IT! This actually had consumed my phone memory since I take gazillions photo of her. 🙂
Value for Safety
Kindermusik studios are child proof and safe. Even the electric fan that they use are blade-free. It’s a big room where kids can play, run around, lie down, and jump until they want to.
The Habit of Reading
Each semester, they introduce around 4 or more reading materials. I encourage Liz to start her love for books this early, so this is a big plus for me. Liz loves the stories being read to the class, because there are parts wherein they interact and sing along.
Through Kindermusik, your child will also be familiar with different kinds of musical instruments. This will not only develop their love for music, but will also be a way to develop their motor skills and use their imagination. For this semester, Liz was able to play the triangle, drums, maracas and cymbals.
I see how much the class had an impact on Liz. It had helped her be more sociable, developed her love for music and use her imagination. I caught her once using a hanger and a pen as a triangle and her play plates as cymbals. As a parent, I could not be prouder seeing her participate in class activities, watching her help her teachers clean up the materials they used, and learning how to wait for her turn.
As parents, we learn from Kindermusik too. Often, Teacher Jeannie talks about child behavior and would give advice on how we can help our kids develop especially at this early stage of their lives.
Still undecided? Kindermusik also offers trial classes so you can see for yourself it the class would be a perfect fit for your child’s needs. Feel free to let me know if you have questions or share your Kindermusik experience by commenting below. 🙂
