Why Kindermusik?

I was doing a little research today and found this interesting article. It talks about the effect that a mother's responsiveness and use of resources has on her child's cognitive development. In the study, mothers with greater social and economic resources were found to be more supportive parents than those with fewer resources, which in turn affected young children's cognitive performance. Conversely, children's cognitive performance also influenced mothers' supportiveness, which included displaying more warmth and sensitivity, and encouraging more cognitive stimulation. This was true even among low-income families. Findings are from the Early Head Start Research and Evaluation Study, which included 2,089 low-income mothers and their children.

I think the key is exposing your child to activities that will stimulate their development and also enhance the bond between you and your child. In our Kindermusik classes, you can enjoy some great one-on-one time with your child while engaging in expert led activities developed specifically with your child's growth in mind. It is truly an opportunity to give your children something that will last forever.
