KinderMusik is a developmentally appropriate curriculum for musical learning that incorporates vocal development, movement, listening, creative expression and early instrumental experience. KinderMusik helps your child explore the world with exciting games and interactive songs that foster self-expression and creativity. Tapping out rhythms on sticks, shaking jingle bells, moving, dancing and singing are all part of your child’s play in the KinderMusik class.
Cooking with Children
The “Cooking With Children” class is an opportunity for your child to gain the skills, experience and knowledge they need to meet a very real and basic need. Each child will prepare an individual serving of food for themselves and experience every step of the cooking process.
During the class, the children will expand their math skills as they learn how to measure the required amounts for each ingredient. They will increase their knowledge of science by turning solids into liquids and they will enhance their reading skills during the review of the recipes. The “Cooking With Children” class allows the children to have lots of fun while learning how to prepare delicious dishes.
Yoga For Kids
Although yoga has enjoyed popularity with adults for many years, it is only recently that we have come to understand how helpful it can be for children in their formative years.
At Springhill Montessori we believe that each child has needs that reach well beyond the physical aspects of their being. We provide yoga sessions for our students to help them practice stillness and silence in ways that emphasize self-control and relaxation. Children’s yoga is a natural and healthy way to exercise, relax, focus, and strengthen the child’s mind, body and spirit connection.
“The body is made to do yoga. Yoga postures and angles create certain pressures to stimulate the body and brain…”
