Our son, Ethan, enrolled in Kindermusik about a year ago under the Village curricula for newborn. He participated in two themes – “Cock-a-doodle-MOO!” and “Hickory, Dickory, Tickle & Bounce”. Subsequently, he moved on the Our Time curricula, “Fiddle-dee-dee” and “Wiggles & Giggles”. He is currently still in the program.
In all his lessons, we were fortunate to have him under the tutelage of Ms. Shauna. Her classes are great as she puts in the effort to make them enjoyable. Her lessons have all been very enthralling and engaging. I see all the many musical activities she carried out in the class and how Ethan is drawn to it. Ms. Shauna is also able to connect with the babies and toddlers under her charge and gain their trust and attention. She is able to adapt to their many temperaments and still make them smile and enjoy the class at the end of the day.
In the past one year, it has been our joy to see our son become enchanted with music (and dance too!). At home, he would jump about to the rhythm of music and played or mimic the instruments that were taught in the class.
He would especially look forward to each Sunday’s lessons. Even though he was just beginning to speak, his eyes will light up whenever we tell him that he will be “seeing teacher Shauna tomorrow”! And that is why we return Sundays after Sundays as he is obviously enjoying himself.
More than that, I have also observed Ethan becoming more expressive and self confident, something which are partly attributable to Ms. Shauna’s teaching style and her constant encouragement of him and the other kids.
Thank you, Ms. Shauna
