All children at Sandpiper Preschool participate in a year long Kindermusik program from the ABC Music & Me curriculum. They meet weekly to sing, dance, and play instruments while discovering musical concepts, developing an advanced vocabulary of music terms, and reinforcing preschool objectives. There are five theme-based units each year and parents receive home materials to accompany each unit (a CD, book, lesson explanation, and sometimes an instrument).
The Kindermusik program is a developmental curriculum that enhances musical, social, physical, cognitive and personal growth. Basic music skills are introduced (pitch, tempo, beat, listening skills), and preschool concepts are reinforced, such as counting, recognizing shapes, and identifying animals. Each child will receive materials with a songbook, a cd of the songs and chants used in class, parent lesson cards, and some manipulatives that enhance each lesson.
Stretch and Grow
Stretch and Grow was created to help the upcoming youth start their foundation of a healthy life and to instill lessons that will carry on a lifetime. Our programs are a fun yet educational approach on physical fitness and nutritional health. We work on the development of motor skills, healthy eating choices, and building an imagination during structured games. Our programs encourage kids to stay active and develop character traits that will benefit them later in life!
