Our Philosophy

Kindermusik with Joy is:

  • Child-Centered – We celebrate the individuality of each child, respecting each developmental stage and inviting the children and families to explore, learn, grow, and contribute in their own way and at their own pace.
  • Developmentally Appropriate – Kindermusik with Joy uses the latest early childhood research and conforms to the developmentally-appropriate guidelines published by the National Association for the Education of Young Children
  • Concerned with the Whole Child – We rejoice that music and movement activities foster development of a child’s intellectual, emotional, social, language, and physical skills.
  • Process-, not Performance-oriented – We provide experiences for all developmental levels with no predetermined level of achievement demanded.  Our goal is musical children rather than child musicians.
  • Fun for the Child and for Families – When children are emotionally connected and an experience is fun and enjoyable, the learning is profound.
  • Inclusive of the ParentsYou are your child’s first and most important teacher, and we want to support you in that role.  We desire to reach and teach parents who will then support and continue the musical experiences with their child in the home using class activities and Kindermusik @ Home.
