Mommy and Me Classes in New Jersey

We're so glad you've decided to enrich your child's life with music. This will be one of the best educational choices you will make during your child's early development. Musical Munchkins has been introducing babies, toddlers and preschoolers to music through instrument play, song and movement for over 30 years and the results have been wonderful!

Our toddler music classes in NJ are designed to offer irresistible challenges for each age group in their own class. When you experience this, you will immediately see the benefits. The entire class is devoted to them and they will enjoy being surrounded by their peers.

Our Classes

Musical Munchkins unique program offers age appropriate classes for babies, 1 year olds, 2 year olds and 3/4 year olds. We also offer some specialty classes, as listed below.

 
 
 

Baby Munchkins for 6 to 12 Months

Come and learn delightful musical ways to play with your baby, make friends and nurture your baby's sensory development and natural musicianship. Babies love the gentle bouncing, instrument and prop play, peek-a-boo games and tickling rhymes included in our specialized 45-minute class. Live music accompanies our games and activities, keeping baby's attention while encouraging social interaction, language development and awareness. The class is for children up to 13 months of age who are not yet walking. You will also be instructed in baby massage so you will want to bring a light blanket.

Music for Ones

Look who's walking! Movement is the key ingredient at this stage as the children discover their mobility. Many more instruments are added to our repertoire such as gathering & lollipop drums, bells, tambourines, and a wide assortment of wooden instruments. Props such as balls, bubbles, scarves, crates, bean bags, soft blocks and canopies develop fine & gross motor skills and extend the child's movement vocabulary. Although your child may turn 2 in the course of the year, the curriculum grows with your child to accommodate their needs going into the next developmental stage.

 

Music for Twos

I can do it myself - Independence Day is here! This is a wonderful age for making music, as children are eager to participate in independent activities while learning to observe and follow the example of the teacher. The children now have a choice of being with their grownup or sitting as a group with their teacher. Echo singing and call and response are encouraged to develop language, listening, and pitch matching skills. By the end of the year, children will be playing the full range of our vast instrument collection - drums, shakers, metals, woods, tambourines and resonator bells.

 

Music for Threes and Fours

Mommies and caregivers wait outside! At this age, most children are ready to increase their independence. We have a gentle approach to separation, and if the child is not ready, parents sit in the room as needed. In this class, we get into more musical notation. Imaginary music play is one of our favorite ways of getting 3's and 4's to broaden their musical horizons as they begin to learn that musicians play and sing together in ensemble. Come join the fun as we continue to foster your child's musical education!
*Parents and caregivers are required to remain in the building.

Mixed age Class for One to Five Years of Age

This class is only offered in the summer, when parents are looking for activities that they can do as a family. It is specifically designed to entertain children of varied ages and has a delightful summer theme. We often see older siblings who attended Musical Munchkins when they were toddlers and are thrilled to be back in class and share the experience with their younger sibling. It also gives friends of different ages a chance to attend a class together.

Montessori Music and Play (18 months to 2 1/2 years)

Montessori Learning Center and Musical Munchkins offer a combined play and sing class for children from 18 months to 2 1/2 years of age, with their caregivers. The classes start with a lively exchange of songs and a multitude of instruments that will be introduced throughout the year .Then the children go across the hall to the playroom where parents can observe while the teachers interact with the children. The remainder of the class is spent  exploring music through props, puppets and books. Our goal in this class is to give children the confidence to play and interact with their peers and develop some independence from their caregivers.

This class has a limited number of seats and fills quickly!
