ABC Music & Me

In 2010 Music2Grow is adding ABC Music & Me to its curricula offerings.  ABC Music & Me is an award-winning music & movement enrichment program for children ages 2 to 6, designed specifically for the early childhood learning center. ABC Music & Me helps develop pre-literacy and language skills through a child’s most-loved rituals: music and storytime.

The ABC Music & Me curricula have been rigorously researched and designed to ensure a rich, arts-integrated approach to school readiness.  Small-group classes create a musical learning environment that is active, engaging and developmentally appropriate.  Weekly lessons based around exciting monthly themes will engage your child in dancing, singing, instrument play and literature. Home materials mean that parents can now participate with their child within the home environment.
