Musical Moves for Munchkins
Welcome to Baby Sensory and Toddler Time classes! Music, movement and more for little ones!
Three classes will be offered in the fall of 2021 in Stockholm:
1) BABY SENSORY I (4 mos - 10 mos): Singing, moving, dancing, together with other sensory activities such as playing with lights, textures and touch, and sounds. We will sing familiar children's songs as well as explore world music. Each week features a different sensory theme. The class provides sensory-rich stimulation within a gentle environment.
Time: Tuesdays 10:30 am. 8 sessions starting Oct 5. Class will be 40 mins long with opportunity for social time after (approx 20 mins).
2) BABY SENSORY II (10 mos - 18 mos): Same, for the more active and mobile babies and young toddlers.
Time: Tuesdays 11:30 am. 8 sessions starting Oct 5. Class will be 40 mins long with opportunity for social time after (approx 20 mins).
Dates: October 5, 12, 19, 26, Nov 9, 16, 23, 30.
*Note: No class week 44 (first week of November).*
3) TODDLE TOODLE TIME (18 mos - 4 yrs): Creative movement and music for active toddlers/preschoolers with lots of fun singing and dancing, including interactive exploration of props and instruments, and storytelling element.
Time: Wednesdays 3:30 pm. Class will be 40 mins long with opportunity for social time after (approx 20 mins).
Four sessions fall 2021.
Dates: Nov 10, 17, 24, Dec 1.
If there is enough interest, toddler class will be divided into two separate classes (18 mos-2.5 yrs and 2.5 yrs-4 yrs). Otherwise, we keep it a combined class. Right now, Baby Sensory I and II are planned as two different sessions, but may be combined. There is space for 10 children (and one caregiver each) in a class.
All classes are for caregiver and child to enjoy together! It's important that caregivers participate actively with their babies/toddlers. These sessions provide a wonderful opportunity for you to bond further with your baby and to connect with other parents and babies/toddlers. Music and sensory programs for infants and toddlers are known to boost brain development, build social and motor skills, and enhance sensory awareness. There is extensive research to support the many benefits of interactive music and movement activities for babies and toddlers.
Classes are geared toward the international community and conducted in ENGLISH.
Cost: 1,800SEK for 8 sessions (includes VAT).

I am an American-Swedish professional performer (actor/mover/clown) with experience working with children of all ages around the world. I am also a single parent of a three-year old girl. I recently complimented my education with an intensive course in developmental (child) psychology at Gothenburg University where my final research project centered on the benefits of music and movement on early child development.
"It was a pleasure to participate in your Baby Sensory class. I liked that A could try different activities to make her discover new things, new sounds, new songs, new textures.... In your class we did things that we don’t do at home. It's 1 hour dedicated to her (which I don’t do often at home as I am always running to manage everything). For A and myself, coming to your class was a good relaxing break from our daily routine, to go out, a way to discover and develop, and meet new people/new kids. I would recommend your class to anyone who would look for activities with their young kid!"
