FORT MADISON – The annual YMCA Kindermusik programs start next month with classes targeting 2-4 year olds on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Program fees for the classes are $50 for Y members and $60 for non-members with discounts available for families with children in multiple programs. The classes are being held at First Baptist Church at 301 24th Street in Fort Madison.
The Wiggle & Grow program is held on Tuesdays beginning at 5:45 p.m for children ages 2-3.
Wiggle & Grow is a super-fun, music-filled learning experience that celebrates the unique joys of the energetic two- and three-year-old. In these 45-minute classes, young children enjoy singing, dancing, and instrument-play activities that are designed to promote cognitive development, encourage social skills like sharing and turn-taking, and cultivate early literacy skills. You’ll love how each class serves up plenty of toddler-style fun while nurturing your child’s growth and development every step of the way. Wiggle & Grow classes offer monthly enrollment and a year’s worth of exciting 4-week sessions, each with its own theme. Bring the learning home with the companion Kindermusik@Home website, which gives you anywhere-access to music, stories, developmentally appropriate activities, useful parenting information, and more.
Four year olds can participate in the Laugh & Learn program on Mondays beginning at 5 p.m.
The Laugh and Learn class combines natural love for music, storytelling, and imaginative play. Early music concepts are introduced and age appropriate activities will help foster independence, social & emotional skills, language growth, and self-control. This a 45-minute class for four-year-old children. Parents will join the class for the final activities.
The program begins on February 5 and registration can be done by contacting the Fort Madison YMCA at 372-2403.
