0 - 4 YRS
Wee Expressions is more than the traditional children’s music program. Our curriculum is based on researched methods surrounding the benefits of music infused with Music Therapy techniques.
In our classes, parents and children (0-4yrs) alike take pleasure in the interactive nature of the classes and jointly participate in singing, instrument playing, accompanying song actions, baby sign language and dances with a refreshing sense of exploration and fun.
Based on a mixture of both structure and free play learning, in each class, parents are taught how to use music elements to develop their child’s mental, physical, speech and behavioural (i.e., learning to wait and share, manners, etc.) skills.
Due to COVID-19, each in-person class has been reduced from 45 minutes to 30 minutes. The classes will be lead by a professional trained teacher who is up to date with the current safe practices and policies surrounding the pandemic. Please visit the registration page to familiarize yourself with new policy, safe practice requirements, and what we are doing to keep the facilities clean and safe.

AVAILABLE CLASS TIME AND LOCATIONS:
Join us for 30min of fun music time where we explore the musical world with things you would find in your very on home. Where we’ll be featuring different themes each month. For instance: Jamming in the Kitchen. We’ll be learning some sing-a-longs and rhythms while playing with pots & pans, and turning chopsticks or spatulas into rhythm sticks. (This way you don’t have to worry about not having your own set of instruments). During this class, parent & child will learn different songs, actions, basic sign-language, brain gym activities, and mindfulness practices as well as social behaviours and manners.
