One of the things I love most about being a Kindermusik educator and the Kindermusik programme is how it supports parents as their child’s most important teacher with the Kindermusik@Home materials. There is nothing I love more than when a parent tells me how a Kindermusik song calmed their baby on a long car trip or a finger play entertained their child while waiting at the doctor’s.
Kindermusik songs, verses and activities are great to incorporate into your daily routines and rituals – from bath time to bedtime; from doctor visits to grocery shopping—the same songs and activities from class can make transitions easier, support the parent-child bond and create lasting memories. Anyone else sing the Kindermusik song every time you put your toys away or host an impromptu dance party to your favourite CD on a rainy day?
Kindermusik@Home materials are an integral component of every Kindermusik class at Music2Grow – from Cuddle & Bounce babies to Move & Groove big kids. Your own online learning resource, Kindermusik@Home allows you to tap into the power of music to help make parenting easier and supports your role as your child’s first and most important teacher.

Your Kindermusik@Home materials are an essential connection between the Kindermusik experience and everyday routines at home as well as out and about.
Your baby loves to hear the familiar sounds of “Gee, but it’s Great to Meet a Friend” via your downloaded class music while riding in their car seat – helping develop memory of a fun, kinaesthetic, social and aural experience.
Toddlers enjoy reading “Pete and P.J.” or singing along and doing the actions to “Mister Sun” at home – boosting their total literacy development by involving every sense.
Preschoolers enjoy boosting their vocabulary and social skills and imagining their own scenarios as they grow with the sunflowers and dance with the bunnies in “Sunflowers and Bunnies” or create their own underwater story to “Song of the Sea”.
Make Music Every Day!
Kindermusik is more than just a once-a-week 45-minute class. Unlike most other music programs for young children, Kindermusik is designed as an everyday musical experience. Your Kindermusik@Home materials provide you with the tools you need to continue the learning, growing and musical fun all week long with your child.
