"Almost all children respond to music. Music is an open-sesame, and if you can use it carefully and appropriately, you can reach into that child's potential for development." Dr. Clive Robbins

Retraction on Time Change and This Weeks Schedule
We are going back to the original times because not everyone could make it on time. I'm sorry for the confusion. But to make it work I will need everyone to pick up their child on time each day so my daughter can make it to kindergarten on time. I think this will work just fine. Just to clarify First class on Mon and Wed will start at 9:00 am -10:30am and the second class will begin at 10:35 am. -12:05pm
Each week on Friday or Saturday I will send you an outline of our weeks activities. At the bottom will be a homework challenge and any important dates for you to know.
