At Kiddibops, we're a bit different...
Kiddibops classes are designed to be interactive. We want our parents to be immersing themselves in the joy of music-making with their little ones.
We don't play recordings with vocals...we sing live; no matter how bad we think we sound, because this is important for very young children! We don't just shake a maraca; we use it to express ourselves musically and develop coordination and motor skills. We have fun at Kiddibops, but we also learn!
We want that learning to carry on at home, because we really do care about each individual child's development... that's why we're different.
All Kiddibops classes have a recognisable 40 minute structure that remains consistent as your child progresses through the different age ranges. This enables each child to build confidence through familiarity and routine.
All classes include rhythmic rhymes, songs, movement, guided instrument play and creative instrument play. We also use scarves, props, puppets, parachutes, toys, bubbles and books to facilitate music-play, and support learning.
We know about early learning development and the way children learn. Children can be observers, movers and focussed players. It may not look like interaction or engagement to an adult, but children learn in a variety or ways, and a style that is unique to them. We know that they may not join in during the class, but that doesn't matter. What does matter is that they are free to explore, create and play with the activities in their safe space and private play at home. This is what we want them to do. This is where the real learning happens.
We want to give parents the tools and the understanding to really support their child's musicality.
Musical interaction is communication, social interaction and the beginnings of language and conversation. It is creativity, self-expression, emotional release and the start of a life-long love of music.
At Kiddibops, we know music, we know kids and we know learning!
