"Coyote Pups" Music for Preschoolers

The songs are meant to reflect many cultures and song styles. Many of these songs are timeless classics that we, and our grandparents may have sung as children. While some of these songs may not be in your child’s native language, I believe that early exposure to multiple languages and cultures has a powerful developmental effect on young children that will serve them for the rest of their lives. In addition to singing songs with the children, we will also take time to play some basic music games that help develop your child’s mind, motor coordination, and social skills.


Some of the areas of child development that these songs and exercises will help strengthen are –

Motor Skills Hand/Eye coordinationRhythm Pitch and melody Sequencing MemorizationListening and waiting turns

Following directions Concentration and focus.

Infants

Our program provides infants with a safe environment rich with opportunities to actively explore and enjoy; to see, hear, feel, touch and move. Our specially trained infant staff establishes a nurturing, creative world for your children filled with responsive interactions and language.


We use a primary care giving model. Each child and their family are allocated a primary caregiver who works towards establishing a warm, secure relationship with the child and a partnership with the parents. The primary caregiver ensures each child's needs and routines are met, taking a key role in feeding, sleeping, changing, noticing, wondering and playing with each child. When the babies are awake and receptive, they will be carried, talked to and played with.


Parents' preference about feeding and sleeping schedules and the child's own patterns govern the course of the day. Our caregiver/child ratio of 1:2 is designed to allow individualized care. A daily communication log is given to parents at the end of the each day, which includes information about eating, sleeping and diapering and any anecdotal information about

your child's day.
