Register for Spring 2018 Do-Re-We early childhood music classes, Savannah

Monday, April 9th, 2018

Do Re We Toddler music classes Parent & Me Savannah

Do-Re-We Spring 2018 early childhood music education classes in Savannah for babies and toddlers start April 25.

To register or see the Spring 2018 class schedule, click here. 

Do Re We is a music and movement program for babies (ages 0 months – 3 years) and their caregivers.

In an 8-week series of classes that meet weekly for 30 minutes, parents and caregivers will strengthen a loving bond with their little one while fostering early skills in language, movement, spatial awareness, social interactions, creativity, and more.

Parents are the primary behavior model for their babies, and with Mrs. Becca’s help, they take an active role singing and leading them through class.

Some Do Re We classes are special because they take place in assisted-living facilities. Residents, or “Grandfriends,” as we lovingly call them, participate in the singing, playing, and movement along with you and your child. These intergenerational experiences are shown by research to be beneficial in many ways to both the very young and the aged.

Learn more here. 

To register or see the Spring 2018 class schedule, click here. 

Questions? Call or text 912.398.7800. Email Mrs.Becca@DoReWe.com
