For most families, the summer is a little different than the other months of the year. You may be wondering how to make the summer special, give yourself a bit of a break from the norm, but also keep the routines as predictable as possible for your child(ren). We have some ideas to share that might help you have a summer and enjoy it too!
- Keep some things the same. For example, many families continue attending Kindermusik on their regular day and time. However, because we like to keep our fabulous teachers happy and fresh, we only run about a third of our regular classes during the summer months. Spaces will fill quickly, so don’t delay in grabbing yours today.
- Maintain a consistent routine during the day. Try keeping waking up, eating lunch, napping, and bedtimes consistent, even when other special non-routine activities are planned. Children thrive when they know what to expect. Keeping music in your routine, makes every day run smoothly and great parenting easier.
- Plan some down time. Sometimes it’s good to plan to do nothing except to be at home and play with your child. Keep it fresh with a new set of Kindermusik@Home Digital Materials that come with our brand new themes in June and July.
- Stay social. A more relaxed summer schedule usually allows for some extra opportunities to schedule mornings at the park, a trip to the zoo, and playdates with friends. We’ve added even more playdates during the summer months, including Fridays in Cambridge, so you and your friends can have fun making music together.
- Try something new. At Kindermusik, we have a fun, fantastic lineup of classes and activities for your family, including…
- Lots more age-specific choices than ever before
- Brand, new themes for June and July including Old MacDonald and Busy Days for Babies, Big Back Yard and I Can Do That for Younger Toddlers, Up In The Sky and Down On The Ground for Older Toddlers, Make Believe and Wild Animal Park for Preschoolers, and for big kids…
- At our Cambridge studio, a fun new class for 4 to 6 year olds, called Jazz Kitchen, as well as an exciting new ukelele class for 7 to 10’s called Ukelele Kickstart!
- Mixed-age, family style classes are also being offered this summer!
