A place to learn and connect with other parents and children and to rediscover the meaning of community? What if there were a place where someone helped you peek inside your baby’s miraculous little body and brain? And what if these moments of discovery helped you understand how with every song, rhyme and tickle, with every whisper and peek-a-boo, you help unfold your baby’s natural gifts?

Cuddle & Bounce celebrates the amazing journey of a baby’s first year of life, focusing on:
- Language and Vocal Development – Babies’ early language skills are nurtured as they imitate sounds, engage in lots of give-and-take conversations, and add to communicative abilities through sign language.
- Brain Development – Through every movement, a baby’s brain synapses and the connections between neurons are created and strengthened.
- Large and Small Motor Skills – Movement through music activities support stretching, kicking, rolling, crawling, sitting and standing independently will enhance large motor skills; playful activities such as reaching for or grasping objects will aid small motor skills.
- Social-Emotional Development – Through lots of cuddling, playing, humming, and dancing, Kindermusik activities help build and strengthen parents’ relationship with children. Side-by-side play and group dance activities with other parents and children provide the important benefits of safe and early interactions with the wider social world.
- Musical Development – Together, parents and babies will explore simple, baby-safe percussion instruments. Throughout hundreds of different Kindermusik music and movement activities, babies receive an early introduction to the songs, sounds, rhythms, and tempos of music from around the world.
