Musical Minds

For babies 12 to 24 months

Young minds thrive on music. It’s well known in neuroscience, psychology and early childhood education that music nourishes the brain in all areas of development — listening, attention, motor skills, language. It also provides the context for building a sense of community and emotional well-being.

Developed by Sophia Grigoriadis, the Musical Minds curriculum encourages all of these aspects through the use of movement and song, brought together in a playful exploration of sound and texture.
