Does your child love to sing? Dance? Play instruments? Get messy? Do YOU like time to yourself?

Join our arts-based drop-off group where children (Ages 2.9-4) will have FUN making MUSIC and ART through a combination of guided activities and free-play opportunities.  Run by a board-certified music therapist and music educator.   Using what we know about the benefits of music and the arts in child development, this unique playgroup promotes healthy socio/emotional development that will set the stage for a successful preschool experience.  Through creative play and arts-based activities, students will get to practice turn-taking, attending to simple tasks, problem-solving and most importantly interacting socially with peers and making new friends! Perfect for both children who have not yet attended preschool and those who have school/group play experiences.  This is a drop-off group (children should be able to participate independently), but we have a large waiting area for parents to stay if you aren’t quite ready to drop and go.  We also have a window looking into the classroom where you can check in on your little one and see how much fun they are having!  Staff will help with students who may have difficulty separating from parents at drop-off time (as is normal and not uncommon at this age).  If your child requires additional assistance/aid, please inquire about our music therapy groups and we will assist you in finding the right program for your child.

  • Identify and validate the range of emotions you may be experiencing in relation to your birth and adjusting to life at home with your baby
  • Engage in music experiences with your baby that promote healthy infant development, bonding with baby, and can be incorporated into your routines at home
  • Develop practical coping strategies for dealing with stress related to motherhood
  • Learn and practice practical relaxation and self-care techniques
  • Make connections with other mothers in your community that may extend beyond the group meeting times
  • Identify resources within your family and community that you may utilize when needing different types of support as you handle the challenges that motherhood can bring
