Toddler learning by playing

Judy's Summer Music & Preschool Prep

(birth-three with grown up)

Welcome to Judy’s neighborhood, where children and grown-ups make friends while singing, dancing, playing instruments, moving with puppets and scarves to children's melodies, classics, jazz, and world music. After music comes gym time on professional early childhood equipment and art time for children and parents.


As in a neighborhood, children learn from one another, older from younger and younger from older. The earliest possible exposure to a structured music class has a profound affect on later learning. Babies watch with rapt attention, calming older children as they sing and move to the music. A diverse classroom experience enriches everyone.

In this program, children acquire skills for preschool and a love of learning that will last a lifetime.



Class size is limited to 15, and there will be no drop-ins. Classes will be held in the airy upstairs studio with large windows across two walls plus ceiling fans. All adults, including the teacher, will wear a mask. Adults and children will be asked to wash their hands before entering the class. The room, mats, and equipment will be cleaned before each class.


We will not be sharing instruments and props, so please bring your own rhythm instruments, puppets or dolls, and scarves (one for each child and grown-up). We will provide everyone with an Enchanted Garden tote bag for these items.
