Early Childhood Education

Suzuki Early Childhood Education

Parent and child (age 0-3) participate in a weekly interactive music class. Parents enjoy watching their babies develop rhythmic and melodic awareness, memory and social skills. Teachers work with parents to build a repertoire of lullabies, action songs and nursery rhymes. Parents are encouraged to use the Curriculum CD at home and to repeat the songs and rhymes daily.

Parents become expert observers of their own children. Children watch the actions of the parent and gradually begin to imitate them. This process is one to be enjoyed and celebrated as each new development is observed –[just as you do when your baby utters those first few words]. The outcomes of these activities include increased vocabulary, socially acceptable behavior and sensitive group participation at an early age. The most important skill for children at an early age is the ability to listen.
