A big "welcome" to our class!
I had such a great time getting to know you and your children at our first Kindermusik class together this past Wednesday! It was wonderful seeing both new and familiar faces. I also enjoyed watching your children participate in our activities with enthusiasm. I observed lots of bouncing, clapping, and sweet smiles! Here are a few helpful notes and reminders as we continue on together.
Shoes or no shoes?
Since a few of you asked about it last week, I want to remind families that we do ask that you remove your shoes as well as your child's shoes before class. It's not a strict studio policy, but it certainly helps us make sure that we adults don’t hurt on any little toes or bring in any unnecessary germs. Plus, our feet are among the most sensory-rich parts of our bodies. When a child is barefoot, his tactile pathways feel the surface below his feet while propriocepters in the foot joints and muscles respond to the pressure exerted upon them. And then as your child experiences slight variations in the surface he walks on, his muscle strength, spatial orientation, balance, and coordination is developed!
