Musikgarten Comes to Little Pandas Playschool!

The girls and I have spent our vacation week in Seattle where Amber has been attending a Musikgarten conference. When she is finished tomorrow she will become a certified Musikgarten instructor. She’s very excited about all the new information she has learned and is ready to share the music and movement activities with the children.

She completed Musikgarten’s Family Music for Babies and Toddlers as well as the Cycle of Seasons for preschoolers classes. Amber will teach music in both homes and intends to begin a Musikgarten program outside of the daycare. She will also teach Little Mozarts keyboard classes for older children.


2009-10 School Year Curriculum

Our two year old class (now threes) has just moved to the preschool, and I spent my first day working with them. They're all eager to learn and had fun during circle time this morning. They already know some of the songs and speak Chinese very well. Everyone's favorite song this morning was Xi Li Xi Li which I'm sure could be heard clear down the block.

During this coming school year the children will study about themselves, their families, their school and their community. Later in the year they'll learn about the Oregon coast, mountains, and farmlands.

I'm looking forward to a great school year and getting to know the new preschoolers!
