ABC Music & Me: An early literacy and language program
Read about this semester's themes
2 to 6 years
14 week semester
Created by Kindermusik for the child enrolled in a childcare center or pre-K program, ABC Music & Me is a research-based language and early literacy program built around music. At the Milford Square Music Studio, ABC Music & Me, taught by a licensed Kindermusik teacher, is offered as a companion class to either Village or Our Time for your older sibling ages 2 through 6. While you are enjoying one on one time with your younger child, your older child is developing pre-literacy and language skills in a nearby room through music and story time. ABC Music & Me supports the early childhood standards and requirements for “high quality programs” as defined by the National Institute for Early Education. Plus for the older age group, ABC Music & Me aligns with pre-K national and state standards.
