WHAT PARENTS SAY
I am so grateful for our time with Smart Start Music! My 5 year old attended from 11 months on and my 2 year old started as an infant. I see the benefits in their pre-reading and math skills, their imaginative play, expressiveness when reading, and their amazing ability to keep a beat! I can't wait to continue to watch the skills they learned through their early music education continue to grow. Thank you for providing such a wonderful environment to learn and play!
We absolutely love kindermusik! We are going on 3 years and my son is still just as excited about it as he was in the beginning. I love that it is very active and so much fun that my son doesn't even realize he's learning. It's great having learning activities and songs for us to do at home together as well. My sons favorite books have been his kindermusik books!
