Musical Chairs Studio
At LFDP, friends get together to sing and share the enjoyment of music. Finger plays, favorite and new songs, and tunes from other cultures will be introduced by our music instructor during the music sessions.
These musical experiences expose each child to various forms of music with wide ranges of rhythms, tempos, and moods, and represent opportunities for learning to identify basic musical concepts, such as loud and soft, fast and slow, and high and low. These musical experiences are also great opportunities for each child to develop a natural appreciation of music and to express emotions and ideas. Mia never misses a class!
The Spanish Hour
Es hora espanoles! Hurra!!! Mia and our Spanish teacher cannot wait to start!
Learning a new language is an enriching experience and a wonderful adventure for a child. The joy with which a child discovers and masters his/her first language makes childhood the ideal time for exploring a second language. Benefits of bilingualism in cognitive and language development continue to be reinforced by current research studies.
At LFDP, we understand the importance of learning a second language and strive to offer each child the opportunity to benefit from it. During our Spanish hour, as new words are learned and new perspectives are gained, each child expands his/her knowledge and opportunities.
At LFDP, we design a movement program which incorporates the benefits of physical activity with the child’s imagination and creativity. Movement activities, such as gymnastics, yoga, and dancing, are combined to address each child’s growth and development in multiple domains. Sensory awareness, flexibility, strength, coordination, concentration, and spatial orientation are intertwined with imagination, self-esteem, competence, and social skills.
Our creative movement instructor, while designing and coordinating the movement activities, encourages and supports each child to contribute with his/her own movement ideas and creativity.
