Music for Aardvarks

mission

A refreshing alternative to the traditional music class for kids! Music for Aardvarks is distinct from other children’s music programs in that all classes are based on Brooklyn musician/composer David Weinstone’s original songs, rhythms, and chants. With influences of rock, blues, ballads, folk, jazz and pop, Aardvark songs uniquely reflect and celebrate the lives of children growing up today. The music is innovative, intelligent, and irresistibly appealing to both kids and their parents. Our informal, spirited classes are geared toward children 3 months to 6 years old and incorporate singing, dancing, musical storytelling, instrumental jam sessions and more. It’s an interactive musical experience that the whole family can genuinely get excited about!

Appropriate for ages 6mths-6years and grown ups too!

The Creative Corner Programs are based on the progressive model of education.  We encourage children to explore, create, and learn through a variety of teaching methods.  Our philosophy is built on the idea that a child’s education is developed through their experiences with the outside world. Activities are designed to meet all learning styles and are developmentally appropriate. We believe in the importance of social skills and community in forming strong foundations for learning.   

The Creative Corner Preschool classroom encourages an excitement for learning by facilitating opportunities where your child’s curiosity is stimulated by hands on experiences. We value and embrace the innocence of childhood, and aim to create experiences through a focus on the creative process, and not the final product. We encourage children to get messy, move freely and explore the world around them in a safe, structured and, of course, fun environment.

The Creative Corner Kindergarten Program offers an opportunity for children to learn beyond the kindergarten classroom.  Designed to support your child’s growth and development, we explore and investigate a variety of developmentally appropriate topics and areas of study.  We support social skill development, citizenship, and a love for nature.  Our year consists of activities based around the children’s individual and group interests.  We are the perfect complement to your child’s kindergarten school year.
